If you downgrade the current versions, it would just update itself.


How do you completely turn off update checks in Firefox v64? You can use a policies.json file to disable updates for all users. https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md or https://winaero.com/blog/disable-updates-firefox-63-above/

Install Older Version Of Firefox {web link} Be sure to read everything here.

If you still want to downgrade, look under; I still want to downgrade. Click the Directory of other versions and languages link. Look for the directory of the version that you want. But, remember that old versions may have security issues.

You should also check out Firefox; Extended Support Release {web link} ESR Notes System Requirements

Hello mmdinges,

All major browsers have now disabled the option to set Flash to "Always Activate", not just Firefox ....

Adobe announced the "end-of-life" for Flash back in 2017 already, which means that sites that still use Flash had (and still have) ample time to switch to HTML5.

In my opinion disabling this option was premature; simply warning users about the fact that it will be "RIP" for Flash at the end of 2020, would have sufficed, but that is just my personal opinion.

From now on, people who visit sites that still use Flash, will have to enable/allow it every time - inconvenient, time-consuming and annoying, but that's the way it is .....
