What is Mozilla Firefox x86 pl?

Mozilla Firefox is a free and open source web browser. Firefox 26 changed the behavior of Java plugins to "click-to-play" mode instead of automatically running them. It also added password manager support for script-generated fields, and the ability for Windows users without advanced write permissions to update Firefox.

Overview

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 primary executable is named firefox.exe. The setup package generally installs about 36 files and is usually about 55.8 MB (58,512,965 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.
