Download Firefox without Internet Explorer

Author , Posted In Posted in: Tips and Tricks

There are many internet browsers out on the market today. Internet Explorer is still a fan favorite in many eyes. But Mozilla Firefox is still a browser to be respected. But lets say you don’t want to use Internet Explorer at all. Lets trying using  Windows’ built-in FTP (File Transfer Protocol) support to download and install Firefox without ever opening IE.

Bring up windows explorer and type “ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/” in the address bar like so:

windows explorer

 

 

 

 

Navigate to /pub/firefox/releases/latest/win32/en-US/

Or simply just go to ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest/win32/en-US/

Firefox

 

 

 

 

Double click or drag and drop to the folder or your choice! No Internet Explorer involved!  Using just Windows Explorer you are able to connect and download from almost any ftp server without 3rd party software.
