When firewalls, proxies, etc prohibit the boots-trapper that upgrades an existing Firefox or download stub (like “Firefox Setup Stub 38.0.1.exe”) installs a fresh one to function correctly:
https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/38.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox Setup 38.0.1.exe
(replace the version number with the current one; replace spaces with %20 when needed)

Boy, don’t you dislike how hard it is to find direct download links…
Well, thanks to kenorb and jjlin (slightly edited):
Check: IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, IE11 Offline Installers Download Links – kenorb Mar 20 ’15 at 13:39 – http://www.itechtics.com/download-internet-explorer-all-versions/ – note this does not provide hashes.
Try these Microsoft offline installer links:
These may refuse to work if you already have IE 11 installed, though. If it is refused, try this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20043971/how-to-downgrade-from-internet-explorer-11-to-internet-explorer-10
And in case these links ever stop working and you must obtain a copy from a non-Microsoft source, here are the SHA-512 hashes for posterity:

Maybe this is one of the reasons I hardly use Safari: viewing the source code of a web page requires you to enable the “Develop menu:
- Safari menu > Preferences > Advanced.
- Check “Show Develop menu in menu bar”. Close Safari’s preferences.
- Develop menu > Show Page Source
Thanks John Galt for answering the above.
