    What Is The Safest Site to Download Firefox to My Computer?


    IE11 is giving me problems and I don't like Edge. I want to download Firefox also to my computer as a 3rd alternative browser. I've been told to go to CNET website to safely do so. Is this the site you recommend to use to download a new Firefox browser, I'm in the US if that makes any difference.

    Thanks, I appreciate your thoughts.

    :)

    Thank you Essenbe for your advice. I'm going to do it very soon and didn't want any problems coming with it. If I don't like it for some reason can it easily be uninstalled?

    Usually when I do a clean install of Win 7 or Win 10 I use this site Ninite - Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once .
    Also:
    I don't trust most download sites like Download.com. I have never had a PUP(Potentially Unwanted Program) installed when using ninite.

    Thanks again for your advice. I just downloaded it from your link and all is well, so far very happy with it. I was able to put my Norton Safe Search toolbar, import my bookmarks from IE and customize it a bit to make me feel at home. *Cool

    CNet has at times been not friendly with downloads. I just got the 64-bit version of Firefox on one of my IP computers. I had to scroll to the bottom to get to the link for other languages/formats to get it as the very first page at firefox.com only gave the 32-bit version.
