after updating from 1.5.0.2 to 1.5.0.3, I am unable to log to many sites, which use cookies.

can someone provide how can I downgrade back, mozilla site does not provide any link for previous versions.

I have been using firefox over a year, first time I am feeling bad about updating my browser.

any help would be appreciated.

There's most probably some option in Firefox that might help that, bit in the meantime here's a link to old versions:

Thanks morcheeba,

Was able to get 1.5.0.2 version from,

http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla ... n32/en-US/


after uninstalling 1.5.0.3 and removing mozilla folder in "application data" and reinstalling has fixed my current problem.

I hope Firefox QA/QC check standards are kept high, so as firefox do not lose momentum due to bad press,

trolly ,

I am a Project Manager myself, I had already exausted all those options before I decided to post in the forum.

P.S. it is not a isolated case, I have confirmed with few of my colleagues/friends, they have reported problems with session with shutterstock, dreamhost control panel, and few other sites.

probably some one can check if some problem with headers sent to servers, if problem is found a immediate patch release is requested

What happens occasionally is that the cookies are still there but no more accessible. Don't know why. Removing the cookies clears the problem sometimes. I guess you have also tried this.
