    I live in Ireland and I understand that when I get Windows 7 it will not have Internet Explorer included so you will have to download an Internet service. I have an IE8 download stored on an exterior hard drive but was wondering can you download Firefox and save it for future use? From what I have done in the past when dowloading Firefox it installs instantly.

    Yes there is a portable version of Firefox that you can keep on a USB stick, CD, DVD whatever you wish.

    See http://portableapps.com/news/2009-07-17_-_firefox_portable_3.5.1

    IE8 URL is http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/worldwide-sites.aspx

    BTW, a lot of Shops will probably be supplying IE8 on a CD when you buy Windows 7.
    You may wish to check your shop.

    This site supplies Firefox as a file. Just right click on a link of your choice and select the option to save it to your hard drive.

    Yes, you can download the FireFox installer and store it on your external HD for later. :) Or did you want to install it now the external?

    I retired and moved to Southern Ireland from UK, so I use the UK version. Have not learnt Gaelic yet and don't expect that I will as most over here use the English language but I must admit that some accents are hard to understand but that is my problem.
