choco upgrade light -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

By default, Light can run along with official firefox. Both x86 and x64 builds are available.
======= Notes =======
Package with VC (more compatible) and new theme version chosen. Test builds.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
