At this moment I'm running Firefox 35.0.1, and I think I wish to return to whatever was the previous version. I think Firefox updated to this version several weeks ago, and since then strange things are happening. First of all, I don not like the "manage search engine" set-up. It's different than the one I had a few weeks ago. Now there's nothing at all wrong with this new incarnation, I just don't like the drop down box, etc, (very small issue). My real concern is, when I'm on a web page, (pick one), any web page, I'll begin hearing audio from some ad. I frantically search the page to see where I can stop the audio, never finding any option. I'll minimize my window, to see if something is behind that window, which I can shut off, but to no avail. This has happened 3 times in the last 48 hours. Not earth shattering issues, I realize. But the question would be, is there an easy way that one could return to the version prior to 35.0.1, without damaging anything, (I'm not extremely tech savy).

Thanks in advance, etc. greg

I am running WIndows 7. I have admin rights (this is a work computer). I have upgraded Firefox to version 40.x (several times). I have deleted the previous version (29.0) using both Control Panel Uninstall and manually removing the Mozilla folders.

The upgrade works fine until I logout/restart. Then version 29.0 is what is running (and now present in the Uninstall control panel). Of course, Firefox wants to upgrade this version but at this point I may have to use Chrome (please no!) rather than upgrading every session.

Dear Administrator,

I am a Safari user on Mac OS X 10.6.8. Some of the website I had to visit every month has updated their site. So, Safari 5.1.0 does not work for these sites. I downloaded FireFox 44.0.2 and find myself wishing to run FireFox 16.0.2 since this version of FireFox does not work with 1Password 3.0. This is a deal breaker for me. Is it possible for me reset the sync data? so that I can use FireFox 16.0.2.

Thank you very much for your time and effort in this matter.

Sincerely yours, Zigang Pan

Hello,

I'm on an old computer still running Vista 32bit, with a 10 year old processor and only 2 GB of RAM. I used to watch Youtube videos in flash (with an addon) because HTML5 simply crashes everything (I literally have to turn off my PC and let it cool down for 5-10 minutes before I can restart it!)

Problem is the last two updates of Firefox (52.2 ESR and the one before that) have taken away that ability. So I'm looking into downgrading to a slightly older version of FF, one where the flash player and the addon were still working, until I can buy myself a new computer. But I can't find the directory for the ESR versions of Firefox. Anyone knows where I can find that?

PS: Chrome/Opera are no substitute, they both have dropped support for my system.

In advance many thanks for the help :)

You should add a popup warning, if some addons are not compatible withi new version of firefox, prior to the update:

ie. (Popup Message) Firefox 57.0.2 update: Some of your add-ons are not compatible with the new version, continue with update? YES NO Manage Addons.

This is a serious issue for professional or personal use. Download queues, professional add-ons/readers etc.

This issue must be resolved in next version of Firefox, it has been extremely annoying for years now, as all automatic updating with no meaninfull user prompts.

In any case, an easy way to FALLBACK to previous version of Firefox wew be appreciated, as well.

Thank you in advance, Thank you for developing Mozilla Firefox.

Firefox self-updated to ESR 60 this morning, without warning me that I would lose most of my add-ons and configurations. I understand that FF 52 has a limited life, but this is not a good week for me to have to deal with this because I am on deadline. I need access to my add-ons that I had last night so I can finish my project.

I would add that I did indeed click on the "about this update" link, but it goes to a "not found" page.

None of the links on the Mozilla website to the old versions allow me to download ESR 52. Even the link that says "download older versions" only gives access to ESR 60.

How can I go back to what I had an hour ago?

MOZILLA: This is absolutely unacceptable. You need to warn your users about what a huge update this is before it is applied, and you need to give people a window and not just force it all of a sudden. I had heard this was coming, but I had no idea that this was it.

Where can I download Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR 52) for Windows in order to continue using the Session Manager extension? It's extremely important and vital that I am able to restore my historical sessions and also save multiple sessions going forward.

When I try to download it, I can see it will be 60 version instead.

Unfortunately I mistakenly updated my ESR 52 version today without realizing I'd lose that extension. This is very frustrating, so to alleviate the issue, I'd just like to have the older version and stick with it. Thank you.

How do I re-install ESR 52.9 on a Mac? I never wanted this new 60 ESR, and I need the old add-on behavior.

Simple. I had Firefox ESR 52.9, along with some add-ons that will not work in 55+.

I thought I had disabled automatic updates. But to my surprise, I got updated to 60.

I don't like what I am seeing. My system has a standard of dark text (preferably black) on light background (normally white, light gray if not active), and you are basically forcing a dark theme even in the daytime, even if gray on black is hard to read, even if my monitor cannot go up to "bright" in a short space/pixel count.

I don't like the ultra-tiny little icons for the new tab page (I do like being able to see more sites; the old one capped at about 54 sites no matter what settings I chose). I don't like the new "hidden menu" that is appropriate for touch screens that doesn't respond to keyboard (control F2 on Mac, alt-space on Windows).

I don't like the look at some of my add-ons have changed to. I don't run a touchscreen tablets, and I don't want my computer to be forced to use a browser that pretends that it is.

I don't like that the new Firefox basically forces pocket on me. I don't like pocket, I don't trust its terms of service/privacy policy, I don't like that Firefox/Mozilla has chosen to basically make it a first-class citizen even though it doesn't put my interests first and foremost. I don't like that Firefox has basically decided to say "whatever Google does, we will follow". I don't like that Firefox/Mozilla has abandoned its view of "what is best for the browser user", and gone to "whatever is best for the website".

Ideally, I would like to have ESR 52.9, as well as ESR 60.X, side-by-side. I would use 52 for 99% of what I do, and only switch to 60 for those sites that simply will not work at all in 52.

Ideally, the only difference would be the display of the websites. They would share the same history, they would share the same set of bookmarks, etc. There would be no loss of data when I move between one and the other.

I have a Time Machine backup. What do I need to do to get the old Firefox back, and prevent it from instantly auto updating back to the new junk? Including my old add-ons.

I have never updated to Quantum due to the horrible nature of the update; today Firefox automatically updated to Quantum (Version 60) and when I go to your website to rollback and click on the ESR download, it continues to take me to 60… this version is horrible and removes all intelligent add-ons used as teachers in our building. Where do I get the version that supports Legacy add-ons… I find it very disreputable and dishonorable to auto-install something on my computer without asking if I choose to accept… I also had auto update turned off (obviously since I’ve managed to hang on to the Firefox 53 ESR version until today. Please direct me to the download location or send me the file. Thank you for your time and support.

I run Win7 x 64 Home with IE11 and have also been using a Firefox ESR version for years; I don't remember which version of it I had recently. For the last few days, Firefox had been 'overusing my Cpu' so when an update was announced today, I clicked the "What's New" button. Getting no information in the new tab, I foolishly updated anyway and got darkened tabs and changes to the address bar, things such as moving the reload button. I tried unsuccessfully to revert to an earlier 52.9 version and finally to this 60.0.1 version, but the changes remain. FWIW, I don't remember seeing any versions between those two, Anyway, I assume these changes aren't something normally adjustable in the Options, and don't see well enough to want to search everywhere for a solution. Can anyone shed some light on this matter, specifically explaining how to revert to the earlier format?

Below is a snip of the top of my page and a bit of the desktop on the left, the page showing the darkened tabs.
