As I have said before, the files listed here are not guaranteed to be the final release versions.  Please link to the the releases page at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release.

Also, not everybody uses 32-bit versions.

Those files are good enough for Softpedia and MajorGeeks, so they are good enough for me.
Of course, you can wait for "official" installer and ignore this post.
I don't understand last sentence.

For most users all they have to do is wait and Firefox will auto update.

Hi Dave.

Because I like to keep backups of the last two or three installers on a backup drive in case there is a last-minute problem with the latest release (it has happened many times over the years).

I also disallow automatic updates for the same reason.

I guess I'm lucky then, no issues.
If I ever did then I have my backup and recovery strategy and restore the last drive image.
