When I download Firefox it is redirecting to an unsecured website download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net is this site safe?

已張貼

Hello, Each time I try to download the new version of Firefox (70.0.1) it is redirecting to download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net however the link displayed from the right click of the mouse is https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest-ssl&os=osx&lang=en-US

I am also trying to find out the file size of the dmg (mine says 72.5Mb) and the Firefox app which seems to be very bloaty in excess of 203.9 Mb

When I drag the Firefox folder to the Applications folder.

However I have gatekeeper set to Allow Apps downloaded from the App Store. YET Firefox opens without having to go into gatekeeper and make changes.

eg. "Open anyway" or "App Store and Identified developers"

Can someone confirm the following i) Current version of Firefox for Max OS X ii) The current size of the dmg iii) The size of the app iv) whether download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net is a a valid Mozilla.org affiliated website

Yes, the "latest" is computed and redirected to a particular file. But it should be HTTPS and not HTTP:

If you prefer, you can download manually instead of getting redirected:

https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/70.0.1/mac/en-US/

mozilla.net is an official Mozilla domain (as well as mozilla.org and mozilla.com).

I am also trying to find out the file size of the dmg (mine says 72.5Mb) and the Firefox app which seems to be very bloaty in excess of 203.9 Mb When I drag the Firefox folder to the Applications folder.

This could be due to decompression, but I have no idea.

That, I know nothing about.
