Hi Steve,

Perhaps you need a release version of Firefox, not Beta. It updates once a month.

I downloaded a release version, ive had firefox for years, it just decided to start updating to betas 3-5 times a week..

Ok it wouldn't let me use my "old profile" as the beta was a newer version so had to make a new one, so now ive got a new old version of ff, completely blank without any bookmarks settings or anything......great :(

Guess a button in settings to stop updating all the time was too much trouble....

Like.... hey ive a small problem in windows...... fine just wipe the hard drive and reinstall it..

You can find the full version of the current Firefox release (69.0.2) in all languages and all operating systems here:

Note that you probably need to create a new profile for the release version.


Note that Beta and Developer Edition update twice a week and Nightly update twice each day. See also:

If you see a b and a # on a end of a Firefox version file name when downloading it then it was a build on the Beta channel and not a Release channel version. A version on Release channel will not update to a build on another channel including Beta.

You appear to be using a Beta build of Firefox 70.0 say the current Fx 70.0b12

There can be say nine to twenty builds of a version on Beta channel in testing with say 12-14 being the norm.

Yeah i know, as i said i download the release version and it wiped everything so rolled back windows

I didn't download the beta, firefox just decided to update to it itself, and carry on from there..

as i also said "asked" is there a way to get the release version without wiping everything? ...... a simple toggle in the settings perhaps?

"do you want firefox to update every other day?" yes /no

instead of wiping everything and loosing years of data?
