    I need to set up Firefox version 47 (32 Bit) This version of 47 will Run My Security Camera So I can view my cameras in in this browser. This version I can install my plugin IPCWebComponents All firefox updates after version 47 will not Install my plugin IPCWebComponents .Version 47 is the last version as of present time (Note Chrome and palemoon does not support this plugin any longer)
    I noticed that version 47 is the last version that downloads as an .exe file.
    After FF47 they started using a download manager installer that automatically downloads the Current version

    I want to use the current version of Firefox (I FF version 58 Firefox Nightly Beta running at the present time as my regular daily browser set to keep updated, and ver 47 set to never to update

    You can run Firefox Developer Edition and Firefox 47 simultaneously, as they use separate profiles but, it would be prudent to restrict 47's connectivity, just to protect yourself.

    and your version 47;

    It seems, right now, the Beta and Dev is in a merge state, perhaps in preparation for release

    I Got My two Firefox Versions set up now

    My main Firefox browser is Firefox version 56 (64 bit) version install in Programs Files folder I renamed the desktop icon 56
    I then Installed Firefox 47.01 (32 Bit) Version and it in program files (x86)
    And renamed the desktop icon 47. I could not use the Bookmarks because of a conflict, so I opened up the profile folder and created a new Profile name it Foscam ( for my security camera’s )
    Clicked run Firefox
    Setup my Bookmarks the and installed IPCWebComponents now all my security camers are viewable from my browser now
    I found several ways of doing this but the way I did it was the easiest
    Case closed
    Thanks for the input from the peopled who reply

    I can run my security cameras on one monitor/window by using I.E. and FF for other stuff!
