there are no compatible versions of my add ons or extensions and i have lost a boat load of tabs i had saved and i want them back so i want to go back to the previous version of firefox...i now have the new 17.0 and not happy i lost all my info and settings

Chosen solution

u dont have to uninstall firefox...

google old version Firefox....u should get a link from ftp.mozilla.org website...download the version u want...probly the most current old version will work for you...then...and this is important...disconnect from the internet before u install the old version or firefox will automatically upgrade ur installation to FF 17...install the old version right on top of whatever u have now (17 or whatever)

after u are installed, go ahead and connect back to the internet...

i just downgraded from FF 17 to FF 16 like this, bc i lost Tab Mix Plus and thats th only way firefox tabs work...

Now to figure out why LassPass doesn't want to install like on all Chrome and IE...
