I do not want the new version of Firefox. What do I do? My old version is not showing on my laptop.

Posted

I loved my old Firefox. I had great add-ons and I was happy with my bookmarks. This new version was installed and I had to import my bookmarks, and find new add-ons. Does this new account require me to be logged into Firefox now to use it???? This is really awful. I don't want to be logged in to use the internet! What can I do? Can I get my old Firefox back?

Hi TheSageCottage, Did you try signing out of Sync? Click the three-bar menu button Near the top you will see Sign Out of Sync.

If you still want to downgrade, see this article: Install an older version of Firefox
