How do I stop this annoyance?

How do you completely turn off update checks in Firefox v64? You can use a policies.json file to disable updates for all users. https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md or https://winaero.com/blog/disable-updates-firefox-63-above/

You can use a policies.json file in the distribution folder in the Firefox installation folder instead as also listed in the article, so no need to use GPO keys in the Windows Registry. • https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-policiesjson

Hi

If you type about:support into the address bar, does it indicate that you are using the ESR version?

If so, I strongly recommend that you update as a fix has been recently released for that version that will help in viewing video files online.

Except that the newest version crashes on my computer 3-4 times a day, so firefox "helpfully" asking: "Should I upgrade to the crashing version?" is not nice in case I accidentally click it...

We're sorry to hear that Firefox is crashing. In order to assist you better, please follow the steps below to provide us crash IDs to help us learn more about your crash.

The crash report is several pages of data. We need the report numbers to see the whole report.

  1. Enter about:crashes in the Firefox address bar and press Enter. A list of Submitted/Unsubmitted Crash Reports will appear, similar to the one shown below.
  2. Copy the 5 most recent Submitted Report IDs that start with bp- and then go back to your forum question and paste those IDs into the "Post a Reply" box.

Note: If a recent Report ID does not start with bp- click on it to submit the report.

(Please don't take a screenshot of your crashes, just copy and paste the IDs. The below image is just an example of what your Firefox screen should look like.)

I do not want to troubleshoot crashes...

I already got rid of them them with using an older version of FF. Now I just want the stupid popups to stop, they are annoying and potentially dangerous in causing the crashes to happen again..
