how to downgrade firefox 3.6 to 3.5 in Ubuntu 9.10?
Posted on 2011-02-25
I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10 and it installed the latest firefox 3.6.13. Now, 3.6 has a conflict with VMWare Server 2.0 and I need to downgrade from firefox 3.6 to 3.5. I did remove firefox "sudo apt-get remove firefox." Then, I installed firefox 3.5 and put it in a folder in my home directory. But the Executable doesn't launch.
When I do sudo apt-get install firefox 3.5, it installs 3.6 again. How can I get 3.5 to work on Ubuntu 9.10? Before I did the rebuild, it was using Firefox 3.5 and there were no problems with VMWare.
Also, I did the same thing on Ubuntu 10.10 on another machine. I was able to uninstall firefox 3.6 and install 3.5 and it works, but not on 9.10. Thanks.
