The new version is ugly, slow, user unfriendly and all my tabs were closed, my configuration was mixed up. It reinstalled google and bing search again. So I want to go back to the previous version (if possible) or I need another browser that is better than the actual firefox. Does someone has tips for me where to find the previous version or what browser is at last okay to use?!

I don't *think* so. I don't actually use bookmarks on mobile Firefox, but I noticed when I reinstalled v68 that I had to configure all my settings from scratch. So I suspect local bookmarks wouldn't be restored.

If you use Firefox Sync, then you could probably resync them from your account. But I don't use sync on mobile either, so I don't know that for 100% sure either.

You will not lose any bookmarks if they were synced with an account. I did not lose any and mine were synced.

I thank you Philip for sharing that information. I have been desperately wanting to go back to the old version. And with your answer, I was able to do just that. I thank you very much. Really thanks.

philipmgrant, I came here to make the exact same sort of post. A couple things I would add to your write up. 1. Use the app "Droid Info" to find the processor architecture of your phone rather than guess. 2. Make Firefox sync the first step since most people will want to do that. 3. Drop a bad review on the play store, so that the problems we are switching to avoid are fixed and we can go back to an up-to-date stable release.
