At this moment I'm running Firefox 35.0.1, and I think I wish to return to whatever was the previous version. I think Firefox updated to this version several weeks ago, and since then strange things are happening. First of all, I don not like the "manage search engine" set-up. It's different than the one I had a few weeks ago. Now there's nothing at all wrong with this new incarnation, I just don't like the drop down box, etc, (very small issue). My real concern is, when I'm on a web page, (pick one), any web page, I'll begin hearing audio from some ad. I frantically search the page to see where I can stop the audio, never finding any option. I'll minimize my window, to see if something is behind that window, which I can shut off, but to no avail. This has happened 3 times in the last 48 hours. Not earth shattering issues, I realize. But the question would be, is there an easy way that one could return to the version prior to 35.0.1, without damaging anything, (I'm not extremely tech savy).

Thanks in advance, etc. greg

How can I revert to an esr version that works with addons such as downthemall, when 60.1 esr doesn't do this anymore?

I just upgraded from esr 60.1 to esr 60.2 for mac, and some addons that I value are now broken. I tried reverting to esr 60.1 from the directory on the site, then trying … (read more)

I just upgraded from esr 60.1 to esr 60.2 for mac, and some addons that I value are now broken. I tried reverting to esr 60.1 from the directory on the site, then trying others, working backwards, without any luck yet. I'd like to find a pre-quantum version that works. The addons include ShareMeNot, Downthemall!, and BetterPrivacy.

I am running WIndows 7. I have admin rights (this is a work computer). I have upgraded Firefox to version 40.x (several times). I have deleted the previous version (29.0) using both Control Panel Uninstall and manually removing the Mozilla folders.

The upgrade works fine until I logout/restart. Then version 29.0 is what is running (and now present in the Uninstall control panel). Of course, Firefox wants to upgrade this version but at this point I may have to use Chrome (please no!) rather than upgrading every session.

All I can get to download is the newest version and I need the 36.0.4 to do my biology lab online since the company it is through did not update their software. I don't want to risk getting a virus through a crappy website. I just need a straightforward link to that version so I can effectively do my lab.

Firefox self-updated to ESR 60 this morning, without warning me that I would lose most of my add-ons and configurations. I understand that FF 52 has a limited life, but this is not a good week for me to have to deal with this because I am on deadline. I need access to my add-ons that I had last night so I can finish my project.

I would add that I did indeed click on the "about this update" link, but it goes to a "not found" page.

None of the links on the Mozilla website to the old versions allow me to download ESR 52. Even the link that says "download older versions" only gives access to ESR 60.

How can I go back to what I had an hour ago?

MOZILLA: This is absolutely unacceptable. You need to warn your users about what a huge update this is before it is applied, and you need to give people a window and not just force it all of a sudden. I had heard this was coming, but I had no idea that this was it.

I have never updated to Quantum due to the horrible nature of the update; today Firefox automatically updated to Quantum (Version 60) and when I go to your website to rollback and click on the ESR download, it continues to take me to 60… this version is horrible and removes all intelligent add-ons used as teachers in our building. Where do I get the version that supports Legacy add-ons… I find it very disreputable and dishonorable to auto-install something on my computer without asking if I choose to accept… I also had auto update turned off (obviously since I’ve managed to hang on to the Firefox 53 ESR version until today. Please direct me to the download location or send me the file. Thank you for your time and support.

I've been using Firefox ESR as a work-around for Firefox not working with silverlight for some time now. Today, my browser updated and quit working. I have to use this everyday in my work, so I'm looking for another work-around, is one available? I like the security I feel Firefox has and do not want to use anything else. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

How can I downgrade Firefox 65 back to 64?

After installing 65 on one of my systems, I noticed a number of user interface elements that didn't look right and for some reason my addon's page just showed blank rectangles where my addons would be, so I thought I'd downgrade to 64. I installed 64 and it seemed successful, but it asked to reboot at the end, which doesn't always happen with upgrades.. but I rebooted and when the system came back up, nothing happened, and my prior Firefox link didn't work anymore. I tried reinstalling 64 again but it said something like the installation was in progress and wanted to reboot again, but again nothing happened. I had to select a new directory for the installation to get it to work.

I thought maybe it was a fluke, so I tried it on another system... and same thing. So is there something unique about version 65 that is making the downgrade fail? What's the right way to downgrade this version?

I am having problems with Local Storage on some websites (ERS 52.9)

So I had my firefox update to ESR 60, and I restored my old browser and profile from backup. Details of that are here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1232392


The problem? I am having trouble with Local Storage.

I tried restoring different profiles from different days from Time Machine. I managed to get one where things seemed to work. Until I quit and restarted firefox.


Mega (mega.nz) tells me: Sorry, we were unable to initialize the browser's local storage, either you're using an outdated/misconfigured browser or it's something from our side.

If you think it's our fault, please report the issue back to us.

Reason: [Exception... "File error: Corrupted" nsresult: "0x8052000b (NS_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPTED)" location: "JS frame :: https://mega.nz/secureboot.js?r=1536229029 :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 331" data: no] Browser: mozilla/5.0 (macintosh; intel mac os x 10.9; rv:52.0) gecko/20100101 firefox/52.0

Trimps (trimps.github.io) tells me:

Your browser is preventing Trimps from accessing localStorage, and you will not be able to save or load your progress. Please check your browser settings to ensure that 3rd party cookies are not disabled, and that you're not using any addons that might interrupt storage!

AutoSave has been disabled to prevent damage to your save. If you previously had a save file, it should still be waiting for you once you fix your browser settings.

Antimatter dimensions (ivark.github.io) just shows me a brand-new game, 9 months of progress lost.

Preferences -> advanced only lists 5 sites with offline data, all of them listed with 0 bytes. Two of these are twitter, the other three are unknown.

Profile_dir/storage has three folders -- temporary, default, permanent -- and inside there are lots of folders for various websites. But I don't see one for either github.io site. Permissions on these folders are normal. But the dates are mostly OLD.

But, only mostly. If I just open firefox, and then close a minute or two later, a bunch of them are updated to "now". Even if I am not visiting the site in question.
