Firefox should not be preventing the installation.
Have you tried downloading the file to your hard drive, then installing?

Thanks....I just did not know why it was taking so long to download.It took me more than 3 hours to install it completely.Maybe it was the fact that I had selected custom install and even yahoo install manager and others that were not necessary were downloaded.When I left the computer,it installed successfully. Firefox was not actually giving any problem.It was just my wrong opinion.It boils down to one thing my being impatient.
