CannotInstallFirefox

Help!, I can't install Firefox

answer to an email to Clif, Aug 2006, permalink

 

I had been talking with Don about something else, and he mentioned his problem with FireFox on Windows 98.

 

from Don L

For some reason when I tried to install Firefox it would not install but Opera would so I went with Opera. Because I am familiar with it I prefer Firefox. I have a hard time finding things in Opera.

from me

Try this version of Firefox. It may work for you. http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

from Don

Hey it worked. Thanks for the great suggestion. I was able to install Firefox on my old computer. Before it always said it could not install because I was missing some kind of files and other bull, this time no problem. It does not have an installer but I found the EXE file and created my own shortcut for the Desktop. I does not appear in the programs list so the reason for the shortcut. Thanks again and keep up the good work on the newsletter I always look forward to it and have used several programs.

Firefox Portable - your browser, your way... in your pocketâ„¢

Portable Firefox is now Mozilla Firefox - Portable Edition (aka Firefox Portable)

Mozilla Firefox - Portable Edition is the popular Mozilla Firefox web browser

packaged with a PortableApps.com Launcher as a portable app, so you can

take your bookmarks, extensions and saved passwords with you.
