Question

Reverting from FF18 to FF17

I'm having the same problem as a lot of other people. FF18 is continually crashing or hanging. I want to revert to FF17, as this seems to have solved the problem for other users. I have installed Revo Uninstall as suggested, and I've gone to the specified link for old versions of FF. I've used the option to view the FTP page in IE. I now have a bunch of folders that seem to be versions of FF, up to 18. I can see a bunch of them for FF17. I'm assuming the ones containing "b" are beta versions. But what is the "esr" version? Which folder do I use for FF17? And what do I do with what's in the folder? I have no idea which folder(s) I'm supposed to open or where something resembling an installer is located. Is there a READ-ME somewhere? Couldn't we have a simple link at Mozilla that just gives us the option to revert to the previous version, whenever a new version comes out, just in case we experience problems?

Also, if I use Revo, will I lose any of my profile data? Are there cautions about the reversion process that I should know about?

Thanks, John
