No.  You do NOT get my point.  Firefox is (almost) worthless without  
an internet connection.  It's whole purpose is to browse the  
internet.  Therefore, if you are going to use firefox, you by  
definition have an internet connection, hence you have the ability to  
get firefox through this same internet connection.  (This assumes  
fetch or wget or curl is around to get firefox.)
