I have installed Firefox 6 Beta and some plugins, functionalities and websites i usually use don´t work with this version. How do i revert back to Firefox 5 without losing my boookmarks and preferences info?

Thank You

If you go to the Beta release notes page, and click the Uninstall tab(I guess that's what you call it) You will find the following bit of text. By default, removing Firefox Beta won’t remove your bookmarks,web browsing history, extensions or other add-ons. This data is stored in your profile folder, which can be found by going to the Help menu and selecting Troubleshooting Information.... The button next to the Profile Directory line in Application Basics will open your profile directory in your system's file explorer.

Please note that if you keep your profile, any version of Firefox that you install after removing Firefox Beta will continue to use the bookmarks, web browsing history, add-ons, and other data from this profile folder."
