G'day John, Smile

Unfortunately, can't download Mozilla Firefox 59 Portable Edition as it says it's blocked and it leads to a html page.
Btw, I am using Internet Download Accelerator Pro

Please advise.

Thank you Very Much,
Best Regards,

I tried downloading with Firefox ESR 52.7.0 downloader and it downloaded OK, so there seems to be a problem re Internet Download Accelerator and the download link.
Strange, as I have been using Internet Download Accelerator to download from for many many years without
any issues until today.
Please Advise.

Good Day from The Land Downunder

Previously, Firefox Portable was hosted on SourceForge and your local mirror likely supported download accelerators. We currently self-host downloads of Firefox Portable and will be moving more apps off of SourceForge as time goes on due to their ongoing stability and reliability issues. Our download servers that we pay for have a limited amount of concurrent bandwidth and a limited number of concurrent download slots, so they only support downloads initiated from the website. Download accelerators generally don't get that information from the browser and are similarly blocked. We respectfully request that users don't use download accelerators as it's likely you're pushing someone else out or making them wait during busy times.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
