I'd like to update my mac's firefox, but not to the latest version. I know about the directory of releases, but I can't seem to find advice on what to do once I download the file. I don't want to create a separate profile, or risk messing up the profile/settings I have currently. So, any thoughts? Thank you in advance for the help.

Win10 with what was Firefox 89. I had already disabled the Proton UI on this installation, because it is horrible. Today Firefox decided to update to version 91. All of the Proton UI junk is back. I tried disabling it again, but nothing worked. Doing a web search, it appears that Mozilla has disabled the ability to turn off Proton.

I then set about to rollback the installation back to version 89. I found a Mozilla link on this, went to their ftp server and downloaded the installation files for the last version of 89. The installation went normally, but when I opened Firefox afterwards, a little box popped up saying something to the effect of "To keep your History and Bookmarks from possibly being corrupted, Firefox must create new user profile." I exited out of this and Firefox didn't start. I attempted to restart Firefox again and the same box popped up again. The only way to get past it was to click the accept button.

I did so and Firefox started. This was clearly not version 89. As the UI is junk, it took several minutes to find out that this was now the latest version of 92!!!! I'm absolutely positive that I downloaded the correct file. When I look through the update history, it doesn't even show todays version 89 installation as happening. What a piece of junk.

I then spent 20 minutes figuring out how to revert back to my user profile, not the new one that it had created for me. I then did some research on what had happened. Well it turns out that you can't actually rollback Firefox, despite what Mozilla says. For a while they have added "downgrade protection" which automatically creates the new user profile and stops your old profile from being accessed by it. So unless you want to figure out how to spend a hundred hours reconstructing bookmarks, passwords, settings, etc. it actually isn't possible to rollback Firefox. Doesn't this violate some Microsoft rules about being able to uninstall versions of software from within Windows? If you try to do this with Firefox and go back to a previous version it blows everything up.

Does anyone know how to actually rollback Firefox to a previous version, so that Proton can be disabled?

I have a firefox account for syncing my multiple computers and mobile devices. I purchased a new windows 10 laptop and installed firefox but it will not allow me to sign into my account. It says my password is wrong. I'm using the same password I used to log into this support site (from an older pc) so the password is valid. All other devices are syncing and signed in. How do I get this new installation of firefox to recognize my password?

Thanks, Mike

I was having issues with Firefox freezing on launch, so I ran the repair which did not help. I tried to uninstall the browser and the uninstall stopped responding. I downloaded and ran the Firefox Setup 93.0.exe file and it freezes trying to execute the default-browser-agent.exe at register-task E7... (see the attached photo - I can't expand the window to read it from there).

I much prefer Firefox to Chrome and would like to get it up and running. Any help would be appreciated.
