Is it possible to undo an unwanted update of Firefox after it has replace a 32 bit with 64 bit service and has eliminated every thing I had on installed over the past four or five years?

With most updates for most programs, there is no option to go back. All you can really do is to install an older version of that program.

Can you explain this a little better?

Sometimes during an update, the browser detects a problem with the profile and creates a new one.


Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.
