Restore old version of Firefox and profile

I was running just "regular" Firefox on my Windows laptop. Yesterday my help desk had me upgrade to Firefox Extended Support Release to install a corporate email security certificate. I did not know when I installed this version of Firefox that it would overwrite my existing browser, and when it did, I lost all of my add-ins, extensions, bookmarks, etc. I'm hoping to be able to restore my old profile with all of the existing data I had. If I have to "downgrade" to regular Firefox I think that's fine since I just needed the ESR to install the security cert and that's complete now.

I looked on the about:profiles page and I have two other profiles, default and june19 (I presume the latter is from June 2019?), but I don't know how to determine which one is the preferred one. When I clicked Launch profile in new browser, it instructed me to create a new profile to protect my information and I hesitated to do that because I'm trying to restore an old profile, not create a new one. In case you can't tell, I'm not an advanced software user, so give instructions like you would to a 5-year-old or your grandma... lol. Thanks in advance!

I have just updated to v.28. All the problems I and many others had with v.27 are now back, and the fix by removing "Cairo" from the Azure backend no longer appears to work. CPU maxxed out. Now had enough and want to reinstall v.26, but link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-older-version-of-firefox to install older version leads to pages of obscure and unexplained files and I have no idea which to download in order to downgrade. Can anyone shed any light? Thanks

Using v. 60.1 64-bit. All attempts to download are borked. No error message, but checking Downloads shos that they all fail (wihout explanation, of course). I have tried EVERY so-called solution for this I've seen on the 'net, and none of them worked.

Help, please.

There is a web page on my visited log I can not get rid of. Deleting the history causes the web page to be access again, dismissing it also brings it right back. I can verify with wireshark that the access is being triggered by deleting the history (clicking "Delete History" for that web page causes a flurry of internet activity on the ipaddress of the page in question).

I tried to uninstall and do a fresh reinstall (check mark for removing old plugins and such checked), but the old web pages still show up on the fresh reinstall.

Short of reformatting my hard drive and starting from scratch, or giving up and going to Chrome, how can I get a clean install?

Thanks, bt

I'm asking about a one-click way to save all my tabs and them upload them on a different computer, just as Firefox does on closing/opening. Thank you

Every time I click a link to download something, I go to my downloads and see that the download just says, "failed." No reason why, no warning...it just says, "failed." WHY. My internet connection is fine. My version of Firefox is up to date. I don't even get an error message the download just does not happen. Nothing has changed since the last time I was downloading files to now. It isn't just for one particular file either. It's for every single thing I try to download.

I made my services account yesterday on Windows, to prepare to move to Linux (first time). I synced all my data (I waited until sync is done), I closed FF and said goodbye to windows. After I installed Linux I wanted to restore my data from services on Firefox (all bookmarks, passwords, plugins, history), but FF was unable to download anything. It said that sync is finished but none of the bookmarks or passwords were downloaded. Is there any history of syncs where I could recover my old profile?
