Which version did you download?
Reporter, can you open the file that you download (it should have a .dmg extension). It's not an installer, but opens as a Finder-window on your desktop. You can drag the Firefox icon then to your desktop or to the Applications folder. You can't launch Firefox directly from the window (bug 246789).
my eyes bleed
Summary: DOWNLOAD FROM FIREFOX SITE WOULD NOT LAUNCH TO INSTALL BROWSER → download from firefox site would not launch to install browser

Incase he doesn't see the first one... You need to download your language version as needed from here: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/1.0.3/mac/ You were downloading the Windows builds, which don't work on Macs. If you download a Mac specific build from that location you should be fine. If you still have problems, please visit the forums at http://forums.mozillazine.org/ Thanks for trying Firefox.
