Description

14 years ago
Reported by Michael R. Wolf in bug 263113 comment 2.

-----
Mozilla Foundation provides Firefox binaries for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

Windows: Installer
Linux: GTK2 + XFT installer
MacOS X: Compressed Disk Image
-----

"Binaries" is too geeky.  I'm not sure how to get rid of it.

"Installer" as the link text is confusing.  Michael R. Wolf: "looks more like
I'm downloading the windows installer than a product that will be installed by
the windows installer".  Since the page doesn't offer a choice between Installer
and Zip builds, it should label the download link something like "Firefox for
Windows (English)".

sounds fine to me.

(okay, I was going to resolve this as fixed, then I noticed it's Jesse Ruderman
:-) ). So I'll hold.

I like Blake's change mentioned in comment 1, and restored it.

I also removed "installer or compressed archive", since that was unnecessary: We
only promote the Windows and Linux installers.
