I have on old MacMini that cannot support updates for Firefox, but I made the mistake of downloading 48.0.2 when it was offered today. Now my Video Download Helper is gone and so is my AdBlock and I cannot find versions that are compatible with this browser. How do I find the old versions of these add-ons and get back to where I was?
