How to Uninstall Mozilla Firefox Updates

However, users may experience problems after updating the browser. Certain add-ons may have been developed for one version of the browser and may not work with newer versions. Users can roll back the Mozilla Firefox browser to an earlier version to allow websites and add-ons to properly function. Users only need to install the previous version of Firefox and the updates are automatically uninstalled.
