I'm SO sick and tired and completely fed up with Mozilla's BRAINDEAD BRAINDEAD BRAINDEAD update policy for Firefox, and I want to get out of this madness NOW -- so, is there an easy and straight-forward way to "downgrade" (well, kind of) Firefox 17 Desktop to 10.0.11 ESR, so that all settings and customizations and add-ons remain functional? Does simply installing the ESR package over the installed desktop release work? Did anybody try already?

I Downloaded and installed v17 beta on my desktop (W7/64). OK I noticed later that the version had changed without doing anything (moved back to v16.0.2, and displayed in Afrikaans).

Note that a second drawer is installed under Program files X86 (Mozilla maintenance service)

I uninstalled both drawers (Firefox & mozilla maintenance service) several times through windows control panel. Every times remain some leftovers (e.g desktop icon, and the drawers listed above , but they are generally empty) I tried cleaning registry afterwards (Tuneup utilities, Ccleaner) and even reboot the machine)

And it's always the same story: Firefox icon re-appears on my desktop, and can be normally opened . The software is always displayed in afrikaan language .

Moreover, I noticed (when I try to open the drawer (program files X86) that windows explorer freezes.

I had same problems on 2 windows 7 partitions, same computer. But never under windows 8

I really could do with a bit of help. It looks as though this piece of software is corrupt, and I really don't understand how it can manage to reappear a couple of minutes after being uninstalled . Otherwise it's not a genuine Firefox version ?

Best regards

Philippe cante

I made screenshots of unistall/cleaning/opening process if that's of any interest to you But I can't attach a file!

I recently had my PC service to remove severe malware. I had Firefox installed prior to service but when I got my machine back the icon looked different & I couldn't open Firefox. I downloaded Firefox again & it appeard to go thru the installation process but when I tried to open I received a dialog block that says location not found. I tried to uninstall Mozilla but am unable to do so. I am running Vista & IE9 (which apparently does not have a safe mode. The kicker is, I can't back up to a earlier time as the back ups were wiped while removing the malware.

I never use beta. First thing I always do is disable autoupdate, and download but let me know and all that stuff. I have Never check for updates, checked. I was just using my browser on a website and it started downloading, I couldn't find a way to stop it. I clicked my Help/About Firefox toolbar to see what version I am running, it says 16.01 so this has happened before, because it should be, old like Version 10. It also says "Restart to update". Under that it says, "You are currently on the release update channel". I went to about:config after searching for a solution and looked at a few app.update things they seem to be proper like false. First I want to know can I delete the update before I close and restart, or after I close and before I restart so it does not update ? I like my current version, well actually I HATE updates, they always mess my junk up. Let alone this wants to do it by itself even though It should be set not to. Second What do I need to change or look at to force it not to update or download or any of that ? My update history goes back to version 11, says new version 11 installed April 25th, 2012. (I have used FF for many years.) All the others, 12.0, 15.0.1, 16.0.1 and now 17.0 are security updates. Although I have created a few new profiles this year, BUT the first thing I do is tell it no updating and of course go through ALL the settings.

Website automatically downloaded Firefox while I was looking for information. I think full computer version may have downloaded into iPhone5. although website shows App folder for installation process, in the iPhone5 the screen instructions say to open the file with Evernote. Enote says the file is too large to download. No App folder shows on the screen. When i open usual App folder, nothing there. So, Firefox appears downloaded but not installed, I think. How do I get this large file out of my phone? File does not show in the iPhone5 program list, probably because it has not been opened, so the usual delete process will not work. Please help.

I have an up to date Firefox 17.0 on my PC running Windows 7. I have a problem in that I had cleaned out all my bookmarks in IE and want to import the new ones into Firefox. I could not do that so I decided to uninstall Firefox. Went to Programs and it was listed but when I went to uninstall, it said it had already been uninstalled (???) So - I just updated Firefox and no bookmarks appeared at all. When I imported them, it only brought in about 8 bookmarks and there are perhaps 30 or so. What did I do wrong? I am rather frustrated and would actually love to uninstall and do a clean reinstall but can't! HELP!
