    hi !

    NO.

    if it only had been that easy...

    read my post, in the dowload thread:

    http://www.winvistaclub.com/forum/wi...tml#post124876

    i have some system restrictions on this computer here at my university, regarding ActiveX and Java, and those system restrictions also means that i cannot upgrade my browser to IE7 /IE8.

    and when searching the web for a solution to the problem, i saw someone else also having problem with Firefox, so i thought it might be a good idea to post my little tip...

    I'm pretty sure you can't download through Firefox becuase the website requires you to download an ActiveX control. If you want, you should download it through IE with the download manager.

    If you insist on using Firefox, check out this guide

    All I can say to you is that I download it successfully without any problems at all using firefox and it is now on my system and I've got the activation key without problems All I did was what I normally do with downloads in firefoxand that is that. Perhaps I was just lucky
