I don't like the latest update- V57. It reminds me of Google Chrome, which I hate. How can I downgrade to the previous Firefox for Windows 7?

I lost a lot of features and addons when Firefox automatically upgraded to V57. I hate it. had I known it would look like Google Chrome, I would have never activated the automatic upgrading feature. V57 doesn't look good and doesn't perform the way I am used to with the earlier version. You should give us a chance to roll back to the previous version. I uninstalled Chrome because of the way it looked and behaved, and I would do the same if I cannot downgrade Firefox to the previous version and have just the same experience I used to have. I don't care about security issues and I don't want to watch the new format YouTube videos. I just want my beautiful browsing experience with the previous Firefox version. The interface and outlook of the pages was superb and now you have ruined it with this update. Just give me instructions how to downgrade before I uninstall Firefox.

I agree. The look, performance and layout sucks with v57. v56 has too many security issues and it's just too much work to go back to v55 plus Win10 had issues with v55. It seems that they are getting lazy at Mozilla, just an opinion.

I want my old Firefox back ....

about 2 years ago at one time Firefox was slow and found that i opened too many tabs in fact while closing it asked me if i wanted to close all 4250 tabs

then after many many updates i found it similar slowing down when i had about 1000 tabs open

now after the upgrade to 57 and i have 200 tabs and it does not slow down but it crashes ...

it became just like stupid chrome.

because in the past although Firefox was slow or crashed it didn't effect the rest of the computer but now i really have to restart the whole computer

before i was just restarting Firefox ...

i want my old Firefox back ....

Firefox comes in two or more folders on all computers. They are;

Maintenance: (Programs Folder) <Windows Only> Firefox itself: (Programs Folder) And two folders in the profile of each user on the computer for each Firefox profile for that user.

If you remove the Firefox folder, the user folders would not be affected.
