Dont worry about it!
Switch to manual updates, backup Firefox, then update manually. If it messes
up, uninstall then reinstall the former version. If that fails, you can
recover most things piecemeal from your backup. Simple and the best way.
I've done it that way for a decade or more.
If that doesn't work, you'll have to bite the bullet, uninstall everything
and do a clean install. It's generally OK to lag 5-10 versions behind, until
your accounts start refusing it.
FF is still a better option than googlecrap. Isn't it? Your choice...

The worst series of UPDATES ever and there have been some pretty cruddy ones
