      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Firefox 28.0 - problem with downgrading from 29.0

Recommended Posts

Guest cimek

Just installed Open Mandriva Lx 2014.0.


One of the first things I wanted to do is to downgrade Firefox to version 28 as hate new GUI in version 29.

I uninstalled new version through Software Manager, no problem but when it comes to installing older version problems are coming one by one and can't over come them.


I downloaded Firefox28.tar.bz2 file, unpacked to /opt but when clicking on firefox.exe file system asks for "which application you want to open it with" and doesn't execute. Also nothing when trying to execute from command line.


I downloaded Firefox28.rpm file, thought it might be easier, double click, it says "installing" and then just stop, installer shut down, no entry in programs list. I tried other versions and have same problem over and over again.


Any suggestion or help?
