Upgraded today [05 June 2021] to Firefox 89.0. Very unhappy with this version.

What is the procedure to revert to either Firefox 88.0.1 or 87.0?

Thanks.

Hi, there is a knowledge base article about downgrading... unfortunately, it appears you might not be able to keep your profile if you choose to go that route.

Warning: Installing a previous version doesn't fix most problems

Problems with an update are generally not caused by the new version of Firefox, but rather the update process. Installing a previous version will not help in most cases. The best option is to start a new thread about your issues, where others can suggest specific solutions.

Using old versions of Firefox also poses a significant security risk.

Old versions of Firefox are always available, as noted above, but not recommended.

What don't you like about Firefox 89? The user interface changes are causing problems for some users due to:

  • background tabs less distinguished from one another
  • menu items spaced further apart (more scrolling of bookmarks)
  • new tab page icons smaller (harder to see)

Are any of those also your concerns? Something else?
