Thanks. Modern computing hardware is so robust ... - Any statistics on this? (1 bit in 100GB might break a disk image.)

comment Add certificate authority to one browser only
I've now found this answer on this site saying that Firefox does indeed have a separate list. That implies that it would be fine if installing on Firefox. (As mentioned in an answer here.) I would, still, prefer a confirmation that FF won't add it to the computer's list, if such a source exists.

@munkeyoto Thanks. But what's mentioned there seems to be exactly what I'm trying to avoid. - from that page: Install Your Client Root Certificate Authority on the ... Machines

If it's a trial software then forget it, who cares. - What do you mean? What if someone replaces it with a virus infected version in transit?

Thanks again. To anyone looking here - In Firefox - I found that in the download manager - right click on the download manager, and "copy download link".

+1. Thank you very much. So from your answer I understand that if there's a hash known, or if the file is signed - we have a solution. If not - we're out of luck. Correct?

comment How does Network Discovery OFF protect my computer?
You're right. That's actually what I was trying to ask. Edited now. In fact - I was trying to find out what exactly does this setting do under the hood but have come up empty handed so far.
