FireFox full version direct download link

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/07/15

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: Setup 38.0.1.exe

(replace the version number with the current one; replace spaces with %20 when needed)

On Windows 7, Visual Studio 2015 wanted Internet Explorer 10… here are the direct links to download it

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/20

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 – – 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:

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:

Viewing source code in Safari requires you to enable the “Develop menu” (via: Apple Support Communities)

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/02/13

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:

  1. Safari menu > Preferences > Advanced.
  2. Check “Show Develop menu in menu bar”. Close Safari’s preferences.
  3. Develop menu > Show Page Source

Thanks John Galt for answering the above.
