How can I roll back to the previous version of Firefox?

It just updated without my knowledge to version 76.0 and it broke Google Maps. I cannot "grab" the maps and moved them in any direction, an extremely very important feature. It's not Google, because I tried the identical maps using Opera, Chrome and Brave and it's working fine on all three of those browsers. Thanks for your help.

Windows 10, Firefox 89.0.2 (current ver, and prior). Often (not always) when I use google maps and click on "Satellite" view, the map tries to update a few times over 20-30 secs, goes black, and after a delay, a system error pops up saying "Application firefox.exe has been blocked from accessing video hardware". If I tap F5 to refresh the google map tab, then it works fine until the next time I start FF.


I found nothing current in FF community about this. I just go finished refreshing Firefox (Windows Apps, FF Uninstall, Refresh) with no improvement. I have an HP laptop about a year old, with all drivers up-to-date and Windows 10 up-to-date. This problem started several months ago, after no problems like this during the first year with this laptop. Suggestions?
