switch to Mozilla Firefox from Internet Explorer

Getting Mozilla Firefox

  1. To download Mozilla Firefox, go to http://getfirefox.com and select “Download Now!”
  2. When asked to ‘Open the file’ or ‘Save it to your computer’, select ‘Open’ to begin installation. If you save it to your computer, save the file to your desktop and double-click the FirefoxSetup−0.9.2.exe to start the install.

About Your IE Settings

Firefox imports your existing settings from Internet Explorer. An import wizard will run when you first install Firefox (and is also available later through the File menu, File > Import), and it imports your Favorites, Internet Options, cookies, stored passwords, and a variety of other data. This saves you time customizing Firefox to fit your needs.

Many of the plug-ins, add-ons, and toolbars that you may have installed for Internet Explorer are also available for Mozilla Firefox, including:

over 50 extensions that are available for Mozilla Firefox to extend the functionality of Firefox even more. (http://update.mozilla.org/extensions/?application=)
