As asked in the title. I clicked on one of the links in the Quantal installer (set up via UNetbootin) and it launched Firefox.

Will using it for a longer time during install cause conflict with language packs that I'm installing (example: Polish)?

If the installer installs something crucial to Firefox, you'll get a notification to the effect of "Firefox needs to be restarted." – Piskvor Nov 27 '12 at 22:32
@Piskvor Why is that? Isn't the live firefox running from liveCD/usb? So installing the real firefox shouldn't affect this one. – balki Nov 30 '12 at 4:36

Should be fine. Might cause the install to take a little longer, but probably nothing serious, especially if it's just random browsing and not, for example, playing big heavy Flash games at a site like Kongregate (assuming you even have Flash available in the installer environment, which I don't know the answer to off the top of my head).

Practically anything (including Flash) can be installed in the live environment, just like you would on a normal desktop... But it won't persist to your new installation. – Oli Nov 25 '12 at 23:28
