Epiphany 3.8.10 has way too many bugs to be usable. 3.8.5 has it's share of issues as well, but is more usable overall. Anyone know how to revert back to 3.8.5? I've tried with Synaptic but it's not available in the list.

Use apt-get install «pkg»=«version». That should downgrade your application.

You'll also need to hold the package from updates with sudo apt-mark hold package_name

  • It said it can't find the package. They must have yanked it from repositories :/ – Sean Patterson Feb 11 '17 at 22:45

    :/ maybe you can download it somewhere in the internet – Dysproz Feb 12 '17 at 8:24
  • I did find a .deb file on Launchpad and was able to download from there. I haven't though been able to lock that version. I attempted to with Synaptic and through the command line, but I'm still receiving update notifications through the App Center. Oh well. – Sean Patterson Feb 12 '17 at 13:54
  • Install .deb package (uninstall installed version before) and without updating use hold command. It should work – Dysproz Feb 12 '17 at 17:08

    Yeah that's exactly what I did. Removed the package through App Center. Downloaded and installed the .deb for epiphany-browser and the data package as well. Installed both via gdebi then ran the hold command. Didn't work, so I went into Synaptic and did Lock Version. Again did not work. As polished as many of the eOS apps are, they have always had issues with web browsers :/ – Sean Patterson Feb 12 '17 at 17:11
