I downloaded the latest version of mozilla filrefox and it is LAME! It ate my navigation bar and everything seems to default to google chrome. I can't navigate without using google - which makes me want to smack my monitor. How do I go back to an old version of firefox that was google free?

Right-click on empty space (next to the search bar) and make sure that "Navigation Bar" is ticked. You might also try clicking on "Customize" and seeing if the navigation bar is in there.

You can make the newer versions of Firefox look and act just like the older ones if you wanted too. The only difference being the newer one would be faster and more secure. In fact I feel that Firefox is probably one of the most (if not the most) customizable main stream browsers out there. Also, what does Google Chrome have to with Firefox? If you are missing your bookmarks toolbar and want your tabs on the bottom that is easily fixable without downgrading.

Thank you for the advice. I got my navigation menu back. I also got Opera running as an alternative.

I'm just say'n because you wanted something "like an older version of Firefox," you might just want to try Seamonkey!

It's the default on Puppy Linux because it's so lightweight - yet it's a Mozilla product (many Firefox extensions work on it) and combines a Thunderbird-like e-mail client with an "old-Firefox-like" browser. So it kinda sorta does what Opera does. Kinda sorta.
