I HAD Firefox Version 60.5.?esr (64-bit) until an UNWANTED UPGRADE to 68.2.0esr (64-bit) and several things DO NOT WORK as before! I want the upgrade reversed!

The description for Firefox 60 esr advised that upDATES would be installed, NOT UPGRADES! How do I go back to 60.5 esr ?

Firefox 60.9.0 was the last Firefox 60 ESR version and is no longer supported. Users on the 60 ESR branch have been moved to 68.2.0.

Okay Cor-el, so how do I get back to 60.9.0, and btw why was I not told that it was "No longer supported" when prompted for the upGRADE?

this is not normal - the bookmarks button at the right of the address bar should be present in new versions as well... do you see it at least when you click the ... page action menu in the address bar?

if not, then please see if you can to replicate this behaviour when you launch firefox in safe mode once for testing purposes? if not, maybe a userchrome.css modification is interfering here...

I see the "bookmarks button" along with ""Bookmark This Page" when I click the ... page action menu in the address bar, but the "Show your bookmarks" button is all I see next to the "Home Page" to the right of the location bar. AND - the BLUE star button never shows to indicate that the site is already bookmarked [the way it did with version esr 60] Thanks!

Also, version 60esr still accepted the option for installing the Flash player add-on, which I had no idea how to implement in Firefox, although it worked fine in IE for sites that still use it. Can anyone tell me how to find it and install it without changing the Windows version of Flash player?

Firefox 70.0 and 60.0 ESR still allows the Flash Player Plugin to run.

There are three versions of the Flash Plugin. The Active X version is for IE, PPAPI is for browsers like Chromium, Chrome, Opera while Firefox and SeaMonkey uses the NPAPI version.

Since you use Windows make sure the optional extras are Unchecked before download.

Note that in Firefox 69 and newer you can no longer set Flash to "Always Activate", only "Ask to Activate" and "Never Activate" are available as possible choices.

You can find items like "Take a Screenshot" and the Bookmark Star in the drop-down list that opens if you click the "Page actions" button (3-dot icon at the right end of the location/address bar). You can right-click an item in the "Page actions" drop-down list to add its button to the location/address bar for easy access.
