Posted by Unknown Posted on Wednesday, October 03, 2012

What if Internet Explorer doesn't work or crashes at regular time? The next option should be install an alternate browser. At that time you should have a question, is it possible to download alternate browser without Internet Explorer. 


Yes, you can use Windows’ built-in FTP support to download and install Firefox without ever opening IE.It is applicable only for Firefox because Mozilla provides an FTP server but others are not.  Here is the tweak for it!!!

1. To access Mozilla’s FTP server in Windows Explorer, type ftp://ftp.mozilla.org into Windows Explorer’s address bar and press Enter. Then Navigate to the following folder: pub/firefox/releases/latest/win32/en-US/ 

                                                                            OR

Copy the entire address ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest/win32/en-US/ to Windows Explorer to go directly to the appropriate folder on Mozilla’s FTP server.


ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest/win32/en-US/

2. You can drag and drop or copy and paste Firefox Setup .exe for download. Then launch the Firefox Setup application to install Firefox.
