Can't download WGA or OGA Firefox plugins RRS feed

  • Question

  • I could really use some direct permalinks to the WGA and OGA plugins.  The auto-download functionality on the WGA installer page is being too smart for its own good:

    • It breaks completely if it sees a user-agent string for Bon Echo instead of a Firefox public release.
    • When it's fooled with User Agent Switcher, it attempts to push the installer(s) at me, fails, and reloads the page.  Repeatedly.

    I doubt it's me; I've got Greasemonkey switched off, so none of the JavaScript is being rewritten.  I went looking for download links in the page source, but if they're in there, they've been cleverly obfuscated.


    ...and this posting form is broken in Firefox, at least as of last night's Bon Echo.  Posting with IE7.
