For some reason they decided to get rid of the channel-switching feature.

Basically, I think you can just download and run the stable version installer, without having to uninstall anything.

The channel switcher was removed because it was found that most people that switch between the channels end up having parallel installations anyway - ie the previous system was "better". It's fairly easy to make multiple installs coexist with a little planning - see also… – Stephanie Jul 17 '11 at 22:56

One way would be to uninstall Firefox, if it asks about deleting your profile then answer "no", and then reinstall the version that you want.
