    So.... Microsoft will give you the option to turn off IE8 in W7 .... and this is agood news for me, as i never use IE, not even to download Firefox :D

    So here is how to get Firefox without IE in fresh install of windows 7

    1. Run (as administrator) Command Prompt (just type cmd in start search, right click cmd icon and select Run as administrator)
    2. Type ftp -A releases.mozilla.org
    3. Now you can at any time list all folder files using dir command, then you can change directory using the cd command
    3. Change directory to firefox version you want (example: cd pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.0.7/win32/en-US/)
    4. Type binary
    5.Now the fun part (get it), type dir to know the name of the app, type get "Firefox Setup 3.0.7.exe" to get it
