Where can I download Firefox 24?

Posted

I currently have Firefox 25 but it doesn't load webpages unless I move the mouse. I am using Windows XP. I read that going back to Firefox 24 would solve the problem. How do I do that?

I upgraded to Firefox 25 about 11/5/13 and immediately could not get the functionality from a well trusted website I had with FireFox 24. First thought it might be the site had broken but realized the upgrade to 25 might be more the problem. Even tried the reset FireFox which did not fix the problem. So I also want to know how to go back to FireFox 24 but nobody has said how to do that. Where is the download?

hello Dalamore, this is unfortunately a known regression in firefox 25 that is affecting a small portion of users, for reference please refer to bug #933733.

in order to downgrade to firefox 24 at the moment until the issue gets resolved, see Install an older version of Firefox.

hey, just to keep you updated - there is now a fix available for firefox 25, which should address the particular problem of pages not loading unless the mouse is moved.

if you have downgraded to firefox 24 to work around the issue, please go to firefox > options > advanced > update and turn automatic updates back on. then go to firefox > help > about firefox which should trigger the update to firefox 25.0.1. in case you need to download the setup file for firefox 25.0.1 separately you can do so from https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/channel/#firefox
