How to install firefox on a pc without an existing browser

I have a desktop PC (Windows 10) and my sister's laptop (Windows 7). The laptop lost power while booting up, because the power lead wasn’t fully plugged in and must have only just made electrical contact and then eased out of the socket by a half-a-millimetre. Replugged it properly and attempted to boot up again. Windows started some ‘repair’ routine (which I have never seen before), examined loads of files for 5 minutes or so and then reported that it ‘could not repair this PC’.

I closed it down, tried a further re-boot and this proceeded normally and I was able to open File Explorer, Thunderbird, Acrobat, Wordpad, Windows Photo Gallery, etc. So all appeared normal except Firefox where attempts to open/load it produced the following error message:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you’re running.  Check your computer’s system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit)  x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher."

I have since attempted to uninstall it but was informed that "it appeared already to have been uninstalled".

The problem now, of course, is that I don't have a browser. (The laptop was 'built' by somebody else who preferred Firefox to Internet Explorer and who must have uninstalled IE.) How do I download a browser (Firefox) when I haven’t got one to start with? Any ideas?

Could I download the .exe file on my desktop PC, transfer it via memory stick to the laptop, and then execute it? Or will the downloaded .exe file be tailored in some way for the PC on which the download was originally done?

Did Firefox Support Forum go back to its previous version within the last few hours, or did it just happen to me? This can be deleted once I get an answer, but I'm asking, because I had a long-running thread on the other forum and need to know if I need to repost my problem I was working on. For instance, this was my most recent crash:

On firefox ctrl+shift+arrow down/up don't work as they supposed to. ctr+shif+arrow down selects only one line and stops, while up doesn't work at all. ctrl+shift arrow left/right work properly and I can keep selecting word by word. I tried after I disabled all add-ons in case they might have caused this, but they didn't work anyway and this drives me crazy. I couldn't find an answer for this anywhere. Please help.

I have 10 brand new Dell Inspiron computers running Windows 10 Home. Installed Symantec Endpoint Protection 14.0.2349, Firefox 52 and now 53. Firefox won't open any websites and appears to be locked up while Chrome and Edge work fine. The only way I can get Firefox to work is to uninstall the SEP 14. Obviously not a good solution for my company.

I've tried every solution I could find, proxy settings, firewall settings, disabled IPv6, deleted and added Firefox to the list of allowed websites. about:crash gives me a blank screen.

Have any thoughts or other solutions?

I occasionally use Easyprints to put a photograph on a canvas or other media. On the website, the instructions to upload a picture brings me to the generic picture file featured in windows.

How do I change the path the website uses to upload a picture?

I've been told this is a browser issue. I have looked at all preference possibilities in Bing and Firefox and not found the place to make my search engine preferences -- such as no search suggestions popping up, not filtering results, identifying my location to refine results, etc. -- stay after I leave Firefox or shut off my computer. When I go on line again, everything has reverted to the Bing default.

Using a Macpro running 10.9.5 and Firefox 52.0.2. When I am on a site with an embedded vimeo or you tube video, the videos will not load and play. If I click run, I just get the constant loading circle. If I click along the bottom line, I can see stills of the frames of the videos. But the video itself does not run either audio or video. I have tried it with adlock turned off and on--no difference. I tried going direct to the Vimeo website and logged in, but it would not run. And now it seems that I suddenly cannot run you tube videos at all, even at the You tube website. What's wrong with Firefox? Do I need a whole bunch of plugins? What works for Mac?

When printing emails from hotmail font size is tiny. This just happened last week. Doesn't happen with Chrome or Edge or IE. Tried changing settings in hotmail and firefox.. Tried the "-1" setting, didn't work (was already set to -1). Print outs from hotmail emails were fine til last week in Firefox. Very frustrating for a business that needs this function.

Please let me know if there's a fix I can do or a fix coming soon from Mozilla.

Thank you,
