Re: How to find the stable version of Firefox won’t be automatically updated

I doubt there is much difference.  We'll see what others have to say but if it were me, I'd use the 32 bit version because I don't know about add on compatibility with the 64 bit version.  I also doubt there is any significant difference in performance between the two versions.  But I'm basing those opinions and comments on very little information.  I remember when Internet Explorer came outwith its 64 bit version that there were incompatible add ons and a lot of people used the 32 bit version for awhile.

Thanks, Jean. I found the 64-bit version, which is what I assume I should use for new windows 10 64-bit machine.

Hi all,
I went looking for the stable version of Firefox, the one that’s not going to auto update to number 57 when it comes out. I did find an off-line installer for version 53 on the website. I thought I remembered somebody saying that version 52 was what I wanted. But I’m not finding that. Does this go by another name? I’m hoping to find an off-line installer that I can put on a thumb drive and give to the person that I want to have stuff installed on this new PC before I bring it home.
