Roll back the last update

Posted

How can I roll back the last Firefox update on Feb 27th 2013. I really don’t like the built in PDF Viewer. I like it the way it was.

Thanks Jay

Just switch the reader to something other than the built in one. Use the Adobe Reader plugin to view or download PDF files

Thanks

I set the Portable Document Format (PDF) to use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox).  It worked great, it works just like it did before the update.
