Looking at the firefox page, it already has a lot of Notes, so I'm
expanding those.  The download will point to the canonical site,
using the full URL, but in one of the notes I will use a shortened
URL with wget (the full one overflowed the boxes for the user input
and for the note) -

wget -c https://tinyurl.com/firefox-59-0-tar-bz2 \
     -O mozilla-release-c61f5f5ead48c78a80c80db5c489bdc7cfaf8175.tar.bz2

I've checked the md5sums, both the c61f5f5e... and the
mozilla-release-c61f5f5e... match (as expected), so I'll go with
that.  I've also put the 40-hex-digit hg version into an entity so
that I can refer to it in the Notes.  Looking at my working copy in
links, the wget example fits inside 80 characters so it should be
fully visible even in 80x25 terms.

Now to measure it some more...

Truth, in front of her huge walk-in wardrobe, selected black leather
boots with stiletto heels for such a barefaced truth.
