    Downgrading from Firefox 3 to 2 (Firefox 3)

    I let Firefox upgrade to version 3 and I don't like it. Is there an easy way to go back to version 2 or do I have to uninstall and reinstall?

    With version 2, I could sync all the bookmarks on all my computers by pointing each one to a single BOOKMARK.HTML file on my network using a setting in about:config. With version 3, they have moved the bookmarks to a database and I see no easy way to automatically sync my various computers. This is a big deal to me so I want to go back.

    You can download version 2.0.0.16 from here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html. However, the downgrade requires some pruning of your profile folder to remove backwards-incompatible files. See this Mozilla Support thread for the downgrade procedure: firefox 3 back to firefox 2.

    Support for Firefox 2 will end in December, after which there will be no more security updates.

    One option you may want to consider is using Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer
