Download Firefox from Mozilla.org

Mozilla Firefox is a free web browser available for Mac and PC as well as Android and several other operating systems. Firefox has built its focus around a practical, minimalist design and low, light weight memory usage. First released in 2004 with Mozilla Thunderbird as part of Mozilla Suite.

Today, Firefox commands around forty-four percent of the worldwide market, though usage is as high as sixty percent in some areas. Key to Firefox’s popularity is its free and open source format, enabling small businesses and bedroom developers to work easily with the system under an open license. Like most browsers, the Firefox download is free of charge. It can be found at Mozilla.com. It is currently in a beta test for version 4.0, and the latest official stable version is 3.6. Firefox for Android and Nokia’s Mameo operating system is in its second Beta version. The mobile Firefox download is available from Mozilla’s mobile site or from the Android App Store. It is also free of charge.

With the release of Firefox 3.0, Mozilla offered developers the chance to create unique themes. Themes are also available on newer versions. Firefox themes change the general appearance of the browser, usually without disrupting functionality. A browser can take on the theme of almost anything, from the NASA Space Shuttle launch to Mac OSX. Textures are a major aspect of themes. If a user wants his or her browser to look metal plated or wood paneled, he or she can find those themes online. Mozilla’s official theme site can be found at addons.mozilla.org.

Mozilla Firefox Download

Postby BlueWater on Mon Dec 26, 2011 7:05 pm

While Mozilla does accept donations, Firefox is available as a free download. Mozilla is a non-profit organization. Their official website, mozilla.com, features the link to download Firefox on its front splash page. Clicking on this link will prompt the download to begin pending your approval. The file size for Macintosh is about 17 MB and should be comparable to that size for Windows. After a quick download, you can install Mozilla Firefox and begin browsing and customizing immediately. Mozilla.com is a safe site, verified to protect your information and your system. If you wish to find out more about Firefox before downloading, mozilla.com offers a free tour of Firefox 3.6, which is the latest version available. This tour explains what’s new with Firefox 3.6, using an easy, visual format including several short, fast-loading videos. Key points of this tour include Firefox’s “Awesome Bar,” an improvement on the search bar that allows a user to type in keywords instead of websites; one click bookmarking, which allows users to click the star at the right side of the Awesome Bar to bookmark the page; and “Private Browsing,” which keeps a user’s search and data entry information off of the local computer’s records. This last feature is useful when browsing the internet on public computers. To access the tour, scroll down to “Meet Firefox,” and click “Take the Tour.” Mozilla.com also offers features and support for Firefox, and all of the aforementioned add-ons can be accessed through the website.

Updating Mozilla Firefox

Updating Mozilla Firefox is very simple. As Mozilla wants their Firefox users to stay updated on the most current versions of the browser, they’ve added a “check for updates” option under the Help menu. Simply click this option and Firefox will make sure you’re using the latest version of the browser. If not, you will be able to download the latest version. Firefox will save all of your preferences, extensions, themes, and add-ons, as long as they are supported under the new version. Firefox will need to restart to complete the installation of the newest version, but, as always, it will save all open tabs and windows.

Mozilla Firefox Mobile

New for 2010 is Mozilla’s Firefox Mobile, which allows users to access Firefox on their Android phones and Nokia Mameo mobile devices. Though the Android version does load slightly more slowly than the standard Android browser, an easy slider gives the user access to all open windows, and this is quicker than accessing open windows with the standard Android browser.
