I was getting a browser error on another site, so tried updating firefox. Now nothing works on firefox. Edge is working, google, windows explorer, etc but not firefox. I have an older PC running I think running Windows 7. can I revert back to previous version of firefox or reinstall to an older version if incompatibility is an issue?

Hello,

I have been a firefox user for maybe 15 years, but today is my last day if you do not tell me how I permanently disable automatic updates. I went through all settings, tinkered with console, etc, and you still crash all my tabs on a regular basis.

Regards.

Changes in Firefox from Version 86 to 90, 92

Apologies for asking this here, but I've done the Google and can't find an answer.

Background: I keep 2-3 Firefox versions and profiles on my computer. The software is in, for example, directories FFox82, FFox84, FFox86 The profiles are in, for example, directories Firefox82, Firefox84, Firefox86 (The software and profiles are on different drives.)

When I do an upgrade, I copy the newest software to a new directory and rename it (e.g., FFox92 - so now there are 4 sw directories) Then I copy the newest profile directory and give it a corresponding name (e.g., Firefox92 - so now there are 4 profile directories). I install the new version to its directory and thenlaunch with a -p option. Then I create a new profile and point it to the corresponding folder. Then I launch the new version with the -p option pointing to the new profile directory.

This has worked for decades.

But I just tried it with Firefox 90 and Firefox 92 and NO GO. It acts as if I've never used Firefox before. No apps, no toolbars, no bookmarks, nothing.

What is going on? Am I stuck on Firefox86 for the rest of the century?

And, please, don't tell me how wonderful these new versions are and I should simply accept the change. I have a virtual lifetime invested in the toolbars, extensions and bookmarks on my computer.

I simply want to know if there is a fix and, if so, what it is.

I have installed Firefov as my default browser. Rebooted. Tried agin and no joy.

Every week or so firefox becomes incapable of downloading any files regardless of site, size, or filetype. Running in troubleshoot mode and deleting all plugins does not solve issue, only solution is to refresh/reset firefox, which solves the issue until it starts up again, I haven't found any catalyst except for downloading, but that might just be when I notice it.
