I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To check which version of Firefox you have installed, click the three lines on the top right of the FireFox browser, then click Help, then click About Firefox - You will get a window telling you which version you have installed.

Hope that's helpful.

I assume 58.02 can co-exist with ESR 52.6.

Any trick to downloading the ESR version?

Just click the button?

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

That's all that should be required.

Before doing a Firefox upgrade, however, it's well to go out and do a little research on what new features you'll get with the upgrade.  I'm still at version 38 because later versions keep getting bigger and bigger (Firefox can take up 400 MB of memory with no sites open!)  Newer versions also have some features that are "not to my advantage," and I don't want to have to dig out how to disable them.

It does not seem 52.6 is necessary the version the download will give me.

Any way to say, explicitly?

Yes; you can get archived versions at their web site.

Yep, you can get a direct download of the version you need here;

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/52.6.0/releasenotes/

There should be no need to uninstall, just install straight over the top of your existing installation.

Hope that's helpful.

I found the correct version, but it wants to install in :

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

Shall I uninstall the other one and clear out that folder?

Andrew LeniartFreelance Journalist & IT ConsultantCommented:
I assume that's where your current installation is?  If so, go ahead and install into that folder. The new version will overwrite the files that need updating.

If you clear the folder, you may lose some custom configuration options.
