I'm trying to download an offline installer for Windows 32-bit from this page:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/developer/all/

However, the link for English (US) always links to a stub installer and not a full installer like the others. Would it be possible to get an updated link?

Thanks!

I just updated Firefox and ended up with Quantum. How in the world can I get my previous version back, and get rid of Quantum? I have never been so disappointed in Firefox as I am right now. I never, ever would have clicked update if I knew I would end up with this.

Is there an easy way to downgrade from Firefox 49.0.1 to 44? Or, do I need to remove Firefox and download again? I've been reading that the issues I'm having with the Selenium firefox webdriver work better with the version 44.

I would like to downgrade to the previous version which was simpler and more intuitive. The bookmarks system is terrible (like the expanding programs menu in Windows 95 when the start button is pressed) It's possible to pin the window to the side bar but when you click on "history", it floats back up again and has to be re-pinned. Also I had nice big toolbar buttons with text. It doesn't seem to be possible to have these in this version. The backwards and forwards toolbuttons have gone, and a create bookmark button is stuck to the bookmarks button. It doesn't seem to be possible either to move tabs below the menu.

For the last few days my Firefox does not display the downloads window. I have tried to follow the suggestion set out in Firefox Help ie Tools --> Options --> General

But my General Tab doesn't show under Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file". Under Downloads, the only option shows "save files to Downloads" and "Always ask me where to save files".

Any suggestions on how I can get to --> Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file".

Thank you in anticipation

Sorry guys, i am disgusted with this upgrade. 29 does not seem like a good ui update at all. The menu bar looks really bad and so does the tab. Furthermore this does not solve my other tab issue i have either in another question i have asked.

How can i revert back to my last version with all my tabs/windows/history restored? I will do a system restore if i have to and then cancel all automatic updates. I honestly dont care if it gives me a bigger security risk.

I have to use version 51 so that I can use Java to open Oracle (I refuse to use IE). I have checked the box to never check for updates, Mozilla updated anyway. I deleted everything I could find on my computer Mozilla related, re-installed version 51, checked the box to not update and checked daily to make sure that there were no pending updates. I ran it for about a week just fine, but then it crashed and when it restarted, it was on version 53. I deleted everything Mozilla again, re-installed v51, told it not to install the sneaky background service, checked the never update box, went into the about:config and made sure the setting really said not to update, then went into the prefs.js file to triple check that it really really wouldn't be set to sneak in an update, and then went and double checked that the sneaky background service wasn't installed, then made sure it didn't have any pending updates anywhere. Ran it fine for a day, it crashed, and when I restarted it, surprise, surprise I'm on v54. It shouldn't be this hard to just stay on the version I want to use. What in God's name do I have to do to keep it from updating? Does Mozilla just ignore what the user actually tells it to do and does what it wants anyway or is my version of Mozilla just trying to start the Skynet revolution? I'm pretty close to just writing a vb script to just delete everything Mozilla off my computer and re-install v51 it everyday at midnight so I can just not have to deal with it anymore, but I figured I'd ask for help here first. If I can't get help here, I'll probably just go under my desk and cry while eating glue and rocking back and forth until they either fire me or have me committed.

Adobe Flash Player works well in Internet Explorer but I cannot download & install it in FireFox. I always get the error message "An error has occurred in the script on this page. Line:883 Char: 37217 Error: error in loading DLL Code:0 URL:Http://127.0.0.1:53437/App/_js/main-merge.js Do you want to continue running running scripts on this page? Yes/No" Selecting either yes or no makes no difference and the error never changes. Closing the error results in a message from Adobe stating that it was unable to install the program. Their download version is now 12.0. Adobe Reader 10 downloaded & installed fine but Flash Player just won't do it.

I can't open anything in my Downloads list. I've tried resetting firefox and I've also tried everything in your article "What to do if you can't download or save files" but nothing helps. I tried to upgrade to the latest firefox to see if this helps but once I've hit the Download button, 1 minute later it appears in my downloads list and... same issue... I can't open it to run it! It's like it's crashed, because no amount of clicking on a download will activate anything. It seems like the Downloads list is dead! Also, (and I think this is linked), I cannot save web pages. I go though the motions and it looks like it's doing the right thing but the pages don't save - they just disappear into the ether! I'm on Windows Vista and have been downloading things happily for years, but suddenly this problem has occured and I've run out of ideas now... Please help!

I have read too many misleading and uniformed statements about installing and enabling Flash Player in Firefox. However after reading way too many comments one little tidbit made as an afterthought by a respondent GOT MY ATTENTION. it said, " be sure Firefox is closed [as well as IE]. Everyone knows to down load and install one has Firefox OPEN because you go to the arrow and click on the executable. WRONG. You must close Firefox and go find the executable somewhere in your download folder and execute it from explorer. The Voila it all works fine and Shockwave shows up in your Add-ons ready for action. Hope this helps all.
