I recently installed the version 89 update and would like to revert to version 88. I have the version 88 installation exe file. Do first save my profile and then completely uninstall version 89, then install version 88, and then finally move my saved profile back to where it belongs?

Thank you for your reply.

The last reply in the link you sent me tells how to disable some of the Proton user interface, and I've already done that. (MOF I wrote that last reply.)

In this thread I am asking if the Profiles folder and the profiles.ini file in V89 will work in V88. It appears that many of the files in the Profiles folder are updated each time I open Firefox.

Dedicated profiles per Firefox installation may be helpful.
