I want to return to version 28. Version 29's interface is hideous. I installed the add-on which supposedly makes it look like version 28, but it doesn't.

I have downloaded version 28. All I need to know is: Do I uninstall version 29 before installing version 28, or can I install version 28 over version 29 without uninstalling it first? I want to keep all my bookmarks.

I have already turned off automatic updates.

For the last few days my Firefox does not display the downloads window. I have tried to follow the suggestion set out in Firefox Help ie Tools --> Options --> General

But my General Tab doesn't show under Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file". Under Downloads, the only option shows "save files to Downloads" and "Always ask me where to save files".

Any suggestions on how I can get to --> Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file".

Thank you in anticipation

im not sure i can live with this. i need my original firefox back. this version is no good. how do i get the previous theme with my orange firefox button and grey top ?

im am positive that i did not say to update. it just did it on its own. now its gay blue. whats worse is there is a gradient into the gay blue. horrible and i need help to get rid of it.

it wouldve made more sense to put the icons on the left. and leave the search on the right where it belongs.

if i redownload 28, how do i stop it from updating again?

Today I got a notice to upgrade Firefox. I downloaded it but It is not compatible with Symantec Endpoint Protection, which I have to keep on my computer. So I had to uninstall the ungraded version of FireFox. Now I am stuck without Fireforx. How do I get the old version back?

Sorry guys, i am disgusted with this upgrade. 29 does not seem like a good ui update at all. The menu bar looks really bad and so does the tab. Furthermore this does not solve my other tab issue i have either in another question i have asked.

How can i revert back to my last version with all my tabs/windows/history restored? I will do a system restore if i have to and then cancel all automatic updates. I honestly dont care if it gives me a bigger security risk.

Firefox 28 was working fine, but when I was asked by a pop up upon opening firefox to update to 29.01 i found there were lots of security issues for 28 so i manually updated to 29.01 by going to "about, check for updates,etc." Once it downloaded 29.01, and told me to restart, I restarted firefox. When I opened it, I found it is unusable. It won't open a single website. It won't load my homepage. It has all my favorites from before on the favorites toolbar, but I can't go to anything. I closed it and tried to run cc cleaner as I always do, but I keep getting the message "firefox is taking too long to close would you like to force a shutdown" but the forced shut down doesn't close it either. I opened task manager to try and shut it from there, but firefox isn't showing up. I have no idea what to do. I am typing all this from Chrome b/c I cannot use the latest version of firefox.I've never had this happen before. I also ran it in safe mode and the same thing happened. Please help, and please answer in layman's terms, because I am not a computer expert. I took a couple screen shots I will attach. Actually i don't see anywhere to attach an image so I can't. I also don't understand the green "automatically add" button that is underneath this box on the mozilla support page. Also, when I went to the help, about page in the top corner of firefox just now to check the version it says "firefox is being updated by another instance." What the heck does that mean? Never seen that ever. Appreciate any help.

The old page now has stubs only, there is no full version on it: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/

Separate but valid question: Searching Mozilla Support on this very forum yields no answers as to where to download the full version of the program itself, around which this entire forum has been set up with all the numerous questions in it about the program... yet there is no answer on how and where to actually *GET* the full version of the program... this strongly suggests that the forum administrators went out of their way, to make it difficult to impossible for users to get the FULL VERSION of the program...

There are many valid reasons for needing the full version of the program, don't you think it's pretty incredible that it has always been difficult to download the full version of Firefox? The old page had it buried in between the Acholi and Xhosa languages, even though English (US) is probably needed by millions of users vs. relatively few for Acholi and Xhosa... Millions of users had to go though gymnastics of finding it buried in between all the worlds languages with every consecutive version, and now they completely removed it even from that page...

What is the the reason, and you have to agree there is a reason, for Mozilla preventing us from having the full installation file? And what is the reason, even when the full installation file existed on that page, for this forum to make it almost impossible to find that page when searching the forum, or the entire internet for the official full version download page?

So it's my understanding that the 64 bit Firefox version for Windows has been released, and it's some sort of Developer Edition.

  1. 1.) Because i am using Windows 64 bit does that mean when i update Firefox it automatically will update to 64 bit Firefox version or do i need to uninstall the Firefox i am using and re-install it with the 64 bit Firefox version if i want to use the 64 bit?
  1. 2.) Because i am using Windows 64 bit, should i be using 64 bit Firefox version?
  2. 2a.) What are the advantages of using 64 bit Firefox version?
  3. 2b.) What are the advantages of this developer edition and do i need it?
  1. 3.) The Firefox version i am using is up to date.. I have about 50+ tabs open. If i need to delete this version of Firefox, then install this 64 bit Firefox version will i lose my profile, the 50+ tabs i have open, and will i need to reinstall my add-on?

I saw the utter uselessness of version 29, removing many of the useful buttons etc. Once I saw it I pretty quickly went back up to v 28, a useful version. Since then it has gone back to v 29 4 times, despite being set to never update itself, precisely to avoid it doing this. Frankly this is a virus like behaviour. If the v29 was actually an improvement over 28 I would have updated to it, but it is crap so I do not want it. I have set everything to stop it updating and it just keeps updating itself to this useless version, probably going to have to go to pale moon now, a browser which seems to actually work and do what it is told.

you know that now Chrome users is more than Firefox. Does Mozilla scrutiny to know why users more migrate to chrome from IE and even from Firefox? it is better to launch a poll in mozilla's website and get information about reasons of choosing browser. i think that the most reason is faster running and faster browsing.

For computer professionals, it is widely known Windows XP is still maintained by Microsoft (despite the MS propaganga that it is unsupported). Only a minor registry change enables this extended support (eg still receiving MS antivirus updates). Firefox's Windows support policy thus needs to be synced to this factually corrected OS life-cycle. A Firefox for Windows XP support termination date not earlier than June 2019 should be targetted.

Hi!

Firefox on my Windows 7 pc keeps on reverting to version 29 over and over and over again...

I update it and after a while when I restart it I end up with version 29...

I tried to remove everything by first uninstalling it and then deleting the content of a few appdata directories but nothing seems to work...

This really feels like groundhog day...

I guess some sort of update file for 0.29 stayed stuck somewhere and it tries to apply it over and over again but I can't seem to find where it is...

Any ideas?

Thank you!

Nick

Running Win7Pro x64 on a Dell laptop. Had FF 55.0.3 x64, then updated to Quantum. Quantum is completely unsatisfactory: 4 instantiations of FF on open, get a new instantiation for every tab opened--and in my work I often have as many as 30 tabs open; all of my add-ons are gone, and searching for them or their replacements only produces a blank page. How to I roll back to FF 55.0.3 x64, which was entirely satisfactory? Thanks Eric Hines
