Bringing together all kinds of awesomeness to make browsing better for you.

This package installs Firefox in the first language which matches this list:

  1. Install arguments override parameter if present, e.g. choco install Firefox -packageParameters "l=en-GB". To get a list of all available locales have a look at this folder: http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/win32/.
  2. If Firefox is already installed: the same language as the already installed Firefox.
  3. The Windows system language where the Firefox package gets installed.
  4. If Firefox does not support the system language, it will fallback to “en-US”

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
