When I download Firefox onto Windows 8, I can't get past the user account controls window. I've answered both yes and no. It shows Firefox in my downloads, but it won't launch. Any ideas?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Did the file you downloaded include the word "stub" in its name? That installer needs to connect to the web to download additional files, which perhaps is getting blocked. You could try the "full" downloader instead. Scroll down to your language:
