Overview

Mozilla Firefox 23.0.1 x86 en-GB is a software program developed by Mozilla. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The programs's main executable is firefox.exe and has been seen to consume an average CPU of less than one percent, and utilizes about 288.91 MB of memory. The setup package generally installs about 33 files and is usually about 50.37 MB (52,816,422 bytes). The installed file updater.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 43% of users of Mozilla Firefox x86 en-GB come from United Kingdom, it is also popular in Australia and the United States.
