Version 89 (64 bit)
Downloaded the new version, how do I uninstall it? It is garbage. There are big spaces between the tabs and the tool bars, the favourites are so far apart that my menu is 3 pages long, and the themes were designed by a 3 year old girl with a fetish for unicorns. The only people that will use this are uneducated millenial inbreds, who spend the entire day taking selfies and looking in a mirror. It makes windows 10 look professional!! How do I roll it back? I suppose there is always google spyware - chrome as they call it.
Going to ESR seems like the right way to go, and it seems other people hate the new firefox layout too. Opera is for airheads who take selfies and do the 'socials' all day, and chrome is memory hungry and is just glorified spyware. I use Edge as well, but it doesn't work properly if you block the ads, so I don't much on it. Firefox is still the best, but the person who designed the 89.0 layout needs to get a new job.Read this answer in context 👍 0

If you wanna go back to any previous versions:
Hi, you can go to https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ and search for the version 88.0.1 to download. However, you need to turn off automatic update in the settings > general > firefox update section if you are planning to stay on version 88.0.1. For more, you can refer to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-older-version-firefox#w_i-still-want-to-downgrade-where-can-i-get-the-previous-version
Automatic upgrade can be turned off in the settings, but it is for delaying. If you want to stop upgrade permanently, put this into your registry:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
If you decide later to enable upgrade, change the DisableAppUpdate value to 0 (zero).
Got the solution... Changed to Firefox Extended Support Release. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/switch-to-firefox-extended-support-release-esr It has security updates and doesn't come with the "new clean" features. This is exactly what I wanted. Since it is ver. 78.11.0, it doesn't accept my profile from 88.0.1, so first time I started FF with firefox.exe --allow-downgrade from command line, after that everything was OK. Don't forget enable update in registry (changing DisableAppUpdate to 0 or delete it) if you disabled it previously, so you will get security updates.
You can possibly use code in userChrome.css to override changes coming in Firefox 89+ with the new Proton design.

I tried to load the ESR version - and got into a non-stop feedback loop. I want my old Firefox back.
