Firefox is a web browser which allows you to view webpages on the World Wide Web. Firefox is developed by Mozilla, and is available free of charge.

Firefox 19 and later comes with its own built-in PDF viewer. To disable the built-in PDF viewer and use Adobe Reader (or another PDF viewer), go to Menu icon > Gear icon (Options) > Applications panel. Follow the directions listed here.
Use Firefox 31 ESR (latest build) for web applications that require it. Use Firefox 31 (latest build) for all other web browsing.
Note: Google@UH apps (gmail, gcal, gdocs) are supported on the current version of Firefox, the version just preceding it and the latest ESR version. Firefox is on a rapid-release schedule with a new version released approximately every 6 weeks. Check for the most current version of Firefox here.
Note: while the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 can be used to run Firefox 31, only 32-bit builds of Firefox 31 are supported at this time.
