Firefox 55.0.3 Updates disabled but still asking for Updates?
We are Running version 55.0.3 and we have disabled updates and in the update section it is ticked don't check for updates and when you go to about it says that updates are disabled by your administrator and yet when we run Firefox it comes up and says your browser is out of date please update.
We don't want this as we have a managed computer system and we don't want users being able to update the software themselves, we want to be in control when we send out updated software.
Any ideas why it is doing this and how to stop it?

If you are a managed computer system you should be using Firefox ESR. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/
That way, Firefox still gets security updates, but will only receive a major update once a year.
Thanks for reply but that doesn't answer the question was asking, which is, I have disabled updates but when I run Firefox it asks me if it want to update the software and why it is doing this?
Because you are running an old version of Firefox. It isn't meant to be run out of date. It isn't updating, it's just telling you to update. So to avoid that, switch to ESR, which is the supported way to run older versions without updating.
