Browsers version downgrade

Browsers, like Chrome, Firefox and Opera are being constantly updated. This means that some new browser versions may not properly work with Multiloginapp.

During the past year, we have had countless issues with bugs in half-baked browser releases. Unless you want your hard work getting trashed by an untested browser auto-update, please disable automatic updates in every browser you are planning to use in Multiloginapp. Use this visual guide to disable auto-updates on your browsers.

To see if you currently have a compatible browser version, you can check our browser compatibility table. If you find that you currently don’t have a compatible version installed, the fastest way to using Multiloginapp will be to downgrade your current browsers, while we work on making the current versions work. This guid explains exactly that.

Google Chrome

  1. Choose a version below 54.0 here (we recommend version 51.0): http://www.slimjet.com/chrome/google-chrome-old-version.php,
  2. Download it and install it
  3. After you finished installing it to a specific folder, you will need to edit that path in the app.properties file. Instructions can found here.For example, if your new location for chrome is C:/Program Files/Chrome51/, then in app.properties file it must look like this:
    chrome.path_manual=C:/Program Files/Chromev53/chrome.exe

Note: You can still use your default higher version of Chrome for your own non-Multiloginapp related operations. 

Mozilla Firefox

  1. Download the version you want from http://download.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/ or http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ Note: If you are looking for an older version of a Firefox “final” release, look for a download with no letter suffix (e.g., 18.0.2 is the last final release version previous to 19.0). Release versions that end in esr (e.g., Firefox 17. 0.3esr) are Extended Support Release versions intended for organizations. Versions that end in b (e.g., 19.0b6) are Beta releases, intended for users who are testing pre-release versions.
  2. Exit Firefox and then uninstall it. Make sure to remove the Firefox installation directory.
  3. Install the older Firefox version. You can install Firefox in the same location to minimize any side effects. For example, the Windows registry or other installed programs may expect Firefox to be in the default location (e.g., C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox or C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox on 64-bit Windows). – In this case you will not need to edit any paths in Multiloginapp. 
  4. However, if you decide to install your downgraded Firefox version to a different location. You will need to add that path in the app.properties file using this guide.
  5. After installing the older version, turn off the automatic Firefox browser update feature using this guide.
  6. Reconfigure your firewall if you have one.
  7. If Firefox disables any of your add-ons you probably need to replace it with a version that supports a older version of Firefox.

Opera

  1. Download the release of your choice from: Opera Stable – Releases.
    • Download the ‘Opera_<version>_Setup.exe’ file, not the ‘Opera_<version>_Autoupdate.exe’.
  2. Remove existing install and re-install from the .exe you downloaded above.
  3. Disable automatic updates using this guide.
  4. If you install downgraded Opera in the same location as the higher-version one, you will not need to edit any paths in Multiloginapp. However, if you decide to install your downgraded Firefox version to a different location. You will need to add that path in the app.properties file using this guide.
