Just download and follow the instructions couldn't be easier, you can even copy accross you're favorites from you're other browser

If you are worried about uninstalling Firefox, if you don't like it, you could use the portable firefox.

Portable means that all the settings etc, are contained within the softwares folder.
So if you don't like it, you can just delete the folder and it's completely gone.
It also has the advantage that you can put the folder on a USB key and use it on someone elses computer, with your own favorites and settings.

Once you have downloaded the setup file, run it, a folder will be created containing firefox, just click it to run it.

A browser is just another program. You can choose to use any one you fancy from thiose installed on your pc.
