How can I install a second version of Firefox without affecting the first?



In the case of Selenium Locators to learn about Xpath and CssSelector its good to practice the Xpath and Css Selector on Firefox Addons like Firebug and Firepath . These Add-ons are compatible on Older Version of Firefox 55.0/56.0 and they are not compatible with Firefox Latest version Quantum.
To Download the older version of Mozilla Firefox we can access the link https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/.
To run the Selenium WebDriver Scripts we use the Selenium Jars , geckodriver.exe and Mozilla Firefox Latest Version which is Quantum.
