I've tried several suggestions to no avail...what is screwing up Mozilla Firefox?

I've dl'd the program twice, installed it and when I click the desktop icon, I get "URL is invalid."

Any help appreciated!

Please start by removing your current version of Mozilla Firefox from Control Panel -
You can use Internet Explorer to download the linked version I have below.
NEXT -
Mozilla Firefox Web Browser Free Download << Latest version download -

Download and Save to Desktop and install from there -

OK, Folks...I appreciate your interest but I'm not making any progress.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (as suggested) using IE and when activating FF it brings me to page the says "URL invalid Can't load page."

Although I've deleted Certified toolbar wherever I have found it (including Registry) it still pops up at times.

When I use IE to reach the Mozilla site there is a download link but it won't download...it keeps bouncing me back to another Mozila page.

Disable all your security as this may be preventing the download - Not unusual -

Information on most Antivirus control (temp disable) HERE if needed

Try starting FF in safe mode. http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode#w_how-to-start-firefox-in-safe-mode. What OS are you running, and what URL is FF trying to get to?
