How to return to previous version of Firefox?

Posted

A couple of hours ago, Firefox updated. I hate it. Is there any way to return to the previous version without eliminating Firefox altogether?

Before you upgrade to FF57, it'd be a good idea to back up your profile (just in case).

Stupid answers. I do not want to sound mean, but I just want to back out of the update that Firefox just did [without my permission!] I cannot log into ANY of my sites as Firefox no longer links to saved passwords. Yuck. I am in the middle of my workday and this will takes hours to fix.
