You can install multiple Firefox versions via a custom install in different installation folders and only use the older Firefox version when you really need it.
Do a custom install and install each version in its own program folder to use multiple Firefox versions.

Make sure not to start Firefox after the installation has finished.
Create a new profile exclusively for each Firefox version.
Create a desktop shortcut with -P "profile" appended to the target to launch each Firefox version with its own profile.

Use the -no-remote command line switch to open another Firefox instance with its own profile and to run different Firefox instances simultaneously.
