Switching back to previous firefox version

Posted

I am using Firefox developers edition and it just updated to version 57. I had been using the FVD Seed dial extension for my bookmarks (I prefer the Opera speed dial style bookmarks) but with the new browser version the extension doesn't work. I tried to download the previous version for the normal Firefox and set up a profile sync option which worked well but the bookmarks weren't there in the extension.

How can I access the them? Is there a way to reverse the update?

Install Older Version Of Firefox {web link} 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.

I have already tried downloading there and it only downloads the normal Firefox, not the developers edition, which is what I have been using. Maybe I just can't find it there.

I am not worried about the security at the moment, just want to access my bookmarks so I can copy them.
