rolling back version of firefox

Hi Guys,

Machines on my network recently updated to version 52, which has caused a lot of problems, i managed to get a copy of the 51 deb, but there are one or two machines, when after running "purge firefox" and trying to install version 51 from running dpkg -i firefox.deb it just wont install, if i do apt-get install firefox it works, but only version 52.

I am connecting to these machines over netcat
