How can I revert to the prior update version 52.2.1? This update gets worse by the day. Cannot access bookmarks, links,photos,etc.

Posted

Prior to the most current update 52.2.1 on PC with Vista, no problem accessing all bookmarks and links and photos on links. Update on my pc was July 12, 2017 and since then many websites will not load. If one does load, it doesn't allow the transfer from wherever it's coming from. Each day more and more sites are unavailable. I took care of the history, cache, cookies, add-on for Shockwave Flash. I use Firefox on my cell phone and can access with Firefox. Use Safari on iPad, no problem there. I would like to revert to the prior version. Help.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-older-version-of-firefox?cache=no Be sure to read everything here.

If you still want to downgrade, look under; I still want to downgrade. Click the Directory of other versions and languages link. Look for the directory of the version that you want. But, remember that old versions may have security issues.

You should also check out Firefox; Extended Support Release https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/

Create a new profile to test if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
