I want to uninstall FF 64-bit and install FF 32-bit (because I want to use addons, like ADBlocker Plus, and they won't install - or worse install but not show up - in FF 64-bit).
I go to https://www.mozilla.org, which becomes https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/ . I click "Firefox" and I am at https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/new/ .
I click "Firefox for Other Platforms and Languages" and I get a dialog where I click "Windows 32-bit". I get "Firefox Installer.exe".
I close and uninstall FF 64-bit from Control Panel.
I run that exe and after the install process I do have FF again, but it's still the 64-bit version. It has even remembered my session and bookmarks and I am even still logged in to sites I was logged in to before uninstalling (those for which I had asked to be kept logged in of course).
I tried that same process many times, by downloading FF with FF itself and with other browsers. I have even unistalled a "Mozilla Maintenance Service" I found installed in Control Panel, in case it was it that was forcing the wrong version to be installed, but no.
I also tried to click "Available languages" in the dialog at point 2, clicked on "Download" at row "English (British)" and column "Windows" (NOT the "Windows 64-bit" at its right), that gave me "Firefox Setup 55.0.2.exe", but this installer too produces the same result (I end up with the 64-bit version again).
No error messages ever appear at any point.
I simply can't seem to be able to replace FF 64-bit with FF 32-bit. I really don't understand what I am doing wrong. Any ideas ?
