 If you found Glinks and viewed the file tree would have come to:

http://wisdomtree.info/zsoft/os2/fileutil/archiver/

and found unrar343.zip, 7zip also extracts

Also:
http://wisdomtree.info/zsoft/os2/internet/browser/firefox-31.8en-USos2b5.zip
 as well as:
http://wisdomtree.info/zsoft/os2/system/
 several libc gcc system dll

What's the difference between the regular ZIP and 7Zip?

Additionally to that what Cal wrote: 7Zip gives better compression.
Therefore it's used for AN .iso files.

How is Glinks security-wise? Can it acces pages that needs TLS 1.3 (ff17
  only have TLS 1.1) so logins can be made securely and card payment can
be done properly? And can bookmarks & login info be importet from FF?

She have Zippy installed in eCs 1.2, so probably it will work an a .rar
file also - it unzips a .7zip file without a trouble, so it mahyap can
do the job extracting the Glinks.rar file properly.
