Same problem on Ubuntu 12.04 with KDE installed. I used rekonq to find
this page, and then downgraded to v45 as follows:

1. Google for 'firefox 45.0.2 deb 0ubuntu0.12.04', this yields a pointer to the original Firefox 12.04 binaries for Ubuntu 12.04 (the ones in http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/f/firefox/ don't work in older Ubuntu releases such as 12.04). The result is https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-security/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+build/9572863 .
2. Download the necessary binary packages from there.
# dpkg --remove --force-all firefox firefox-locale-de firefox-locale-en
# dpkg -i --force-all firefox_45.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_amd64.deb firefox-locale-de_45.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_amd64.deb firefox-locale-en_45.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_amd64.deb
# apt-mark hold firefox firefox-locale-de firefox-locale-en
