Mozilla Firefox 3.x Virtual Software Packages (US, NL, DE) (updated)
Firefox 3 ("the best yet") is here, to much fanfare. With over 8 million downloads in the first 24 hrs., Firefox 3 is "faster, safer and smarter than before". Mozilla claims over 15,000 enhancements or fixes in this release. Get details on the most interesting improvements in the Release Notes. For a complete list of Firefox 3.0 features, see the Product Requirements Document.
Try Firefox 3 now, virtually! Don't like it? Just deactivate and delete.
Even if you decide on Firefox 3 as your permanent main Web browser, keep it virtualized! Firefox already does a lot to ensure that you stay safe on the Web. But sometimes the unexpected happens. Been surfing the Web with undesired results? Machine getting slow? Things showing up that you know shouldn’t be there? With virtualized Firefox, you can quickly put things back to their original state by resetting the Firefox virtual layer. Any changes made to your machine from within Firefox will be un-done, like you’d never been on the Net! Just “Reset”!
Firefox is provided by Symantec in three languages -- English, German and Dutch. Also, we are now providing it in the .VRA ("Virtual Runtime Archive") format. Now anyone can use virtualized Firefox permanently, even if you are a business that has not yet purchased SVS! If SVS is installed without a license key, it defaults to "runtime mode," which allows use of VRAs. Licensed SVS installations, of course, have full functionality and can also use VRAs.
Did you know that HP business desktops come with SVS Runtime and virtual Firefox pre-installed?

- Firefox 3 is installed to a unique path for each language, with unique shortcut names. This makes it simple to use this Firefox virtual layer side-by-side with other versions of Firefox.
- The desktop and My Documents are excluded, which means data saved to these locations is not virtualized. If you download a file and want to ensure that it stays persistent on your machine after a reset of Firefox, save it to one of these locations. For more information on how to keep data separate from virtual application layers, please read this article.
- By default, this version of Firefox will see and use your existing Firefox profile if you have one. However, changes to that profile will stay contained within the Firefox 3 virtual layer. So rolling back is as simple as deactivating (or resetting) Firefox 3.
- If your existing Firefox user profiles are in a data layer, you may want to consider deactivating that data layer when experimenting with this new version of Firefox.
Update, Dec 2, 2008: Packages updated with Firefox 3.0.4.
