Hello. I installed the latest version of Firefox and I don't like. How can I go on back to the previous version (3.6.3 I think)? Thanks, Geoff

I think the latest version is very slow when you access web pages. I want to return to the previous version to see if it's better. How can I go about changing back?


To return to the previous secure version which is 3.6.17, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Download Firefox v3.6.17 and upload it to the office.
  2. Then go to add/remove programs, scroll down to "Mozilla Firefox" and delete it, choosing to keep your bookmarks, etc., the customizations (don't tick the box).
  3. Reboot and delete the folder called "Mozilla Firefox" at this location: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
  4. Finally, run the installation file downloaded previously on the desktop.

Your bookmarks, etc., customizations are stored in a different location and will become available to you even once you complete the installation.

After completing the installation, go to the Plugins check page and update if necessary.

However, before go you that route, here are some tips to make it look like the previous version of FF4.

  • Right-click on an empty part of the toolbar tab and click "Tabs on top" to remove the check mark. Tabs later reappears under the search bar.
  • Repeat the same steps, but click on the top of the page, one called 'Menu bar '. This will restore the text at the top links.
  • To rearrange the layout, repeat the same steps and choose "Customize". A Panel opens and who remains on the screen, you can move elements like toolbars, buttons etc. around and place them anywhere you want. You can also drag anything there that you don't like Panel and add anything you want by dragging it out of there.
  • To replace the status bar at the bottom of the page, install this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/status-4-evar/
