Now, go to the versions tab and for anything labeled 3.6, select that bullet. When done, select Accept/OK on the bottom right and allow Firefox to be downgraded. I might also suggest that once installed and working, I would visit Software Management again, search on Firefox again, right click on each 3.6 file and elect to put a lock on it so it will not upgrade on you in the future. Be aware that some new add-ins will no longer work without a downgrade or complete removal/re-installation.
So I did, but apparently evrything got messed up. I had to use Konqueror, that got messed up too. So then I deleted FF 3.6 in the update list in Softaware management in YAST and re-installed FF 4.0. FF 4.0 does the job (I mean I can get to the internet) , but, unfortunately I need FF 3.6.
Is there a way to firstly “de-install” FF 4 and then install FF 3.6 ?

there is no such…but, there is a 3.6 64 bit firefox in the openSUSE
11.3 oss repo…
i’ve never done such a back level, and i’ve never read how to do it, but
i’d guess if you enable the 11.3 oss repo, and search for firefox in
YaST it would show two versions, 3.6 in and the FF4 repo which you have
already deleted), right click and mark 3.6 for installation and mark the
ff4 as “taboo”, and click accept…
but, read my caveat and do your homework on this how-to…or wait for
someone to confirm or deny my guess as right or disastrous…
hmmmm, you could also find the source for 3.6 and compile it…
