How do I uninstall Firefox Beta and re-install Firefox NOT-Beta, and save all of my bookmarks?

The constant updates associated with being a beta user are getting really annoying, and I want to opt out. Is it as easy as uninstalling, downloading the latest update of regular Firefox? Will all of my bookmarks and settings be saved?

Chosen solution

Yes, you can uninstall the Firefox beta release and install the full version of the current Firefox 9.0.1 to change the update channel from beta to release.
Firefox 10 will be released at the end of this month.

  • Do NOT remove personal data when you uninstall the current version or you lose your bookmarks and other data because all profile folders will be removed.

Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.

Your bookmarks and other profile data are stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder and won't be affected by a (re)install, but make sure that you do not select to remove personal data if you uninstall Firefox.
