The absence of the browser choice screen from new or updated installations of Windows 7 had a big impact on downloads of Firefox, according to a blog postby Mozilla's general counsel and vice president of business affairs, Harvey Anderson.

"Cumulatively 6 to 9 million Firefox browser downloads were lost during this period," Anderson wrote. "After the fix, Firefox downloads increased 150 percent to approximately 50,000 per day," he said, adding that when the browser screen was absent, downloads decreased to a low of 20,000 just prior to the fix.
