How do I get off the beta update channel & revert from v.32 to v.31?

Posted

I have tried uninstalling v.32 & installing v.31 but I get a message that the PC must be restarted to finish the uninstall & it just runs around this loop.

Hello Johnm1931,

Try first to download the release version and install over beta.

Full installer: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/

The other way is to edit the channel-prefs.js in Installation directory, because the App.update.channel only changed by editing channel-prefs.js in the application(installation) directory.

see : Software Update

  1. Close Firefox.
  2. Go to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref
  3. Edit channel-prefs.js with Notepad pref("app.update.channel", "release");
  4. save it, exit, open firefox.

check the change of app.update.channel in about:config

then install the release firefox version.


thank you

That other way will not get a user going back a version but will give the user a update to Firefox 32.0 when it is released.
