Downgrading from V89 to ESR (V78)

Since I find the new Proton GUI a step backwards in usability, I plan to defer the inevitable as long as possible by moving to the ESR version (currently V78).

  1. How long are ESR versions supported?
  2. What is the ESR version release cycle?
  3. I plan to try using the -allow-downgrade command line option when downgrading, but the articles "Install an older version of Firefox" and "Command line options" are a bit short on step-by-step instruction. What is the correct procedure / sequence?
  4. I have serious misgivings that the result will be usable, given the large difference in version numbers. I have made a backup of my profile. Should I have problems with the downgraded profile, I will presumably have to create a new profile. How can I recover data from the backup profile and import it into the new profile?
  5. I am using Firefox Sync and hope that it will relieve me of some of the pain associated with a new profile. I am not syncing History however, because I prefer to keep the histories of my separate Firefox installations on different devices separate. Is there another way to preserve the history from a particular installation?
  6. If not, what can I expect from sequentially turning on history sync on my various Firefox installations?
  7. Will all history be merged or will subsequent history lists overwrite earlier ones?

Any further advice which might prevent me from screwing this up would be most welcome!

Got an update to89.0 four days ago, that totally screwed up my userChrome.css file -- which I now fixed (Again, thank you to all that help with posting this updated file to get tabs on the bottom for us non-techies) but I am now getting notices to update to 90.0 Beta 5. This is new, as far as I know, and I certainly don't want to try Beta versions, if anything I'd like less updates to avoid the userChrome incidents ... Is there a way to get out of this Beta update cycle, and back to whatever "normal" update requests are? Thanks!

Just run firefox update. Wish I hadn't. The tabs along the top are so hard to read unless they are the current one. Can I cancel this update and go back to old version? If I can't get this corrected I'll have to give up on Firefox and find something else.
