This is a work PC (Ubuntu 18.04 for ... reasons), and Firefox 66.0.3 contains no way to let me choose when to apply updates rather than installing them silently.
The problem with the silent install is that it happens, well, silently, and the only notification I get is when I open a new tab, and instead of letting me get on with the work-related search I wanted to do, Firefox puts up a rather childishly-phrased message that can be summarised as "Firefox found and installed an update and needs to restart to finish the process."
This interrupts my work (it's a work PC, remember), and makes matters worse by closing Firefox and *not* restarting. (That is, I have to launch it manually after it closes. That's not hard, but it's not what Firefox promised me would happen.)
I'd like to be able to turn off the automatic installation, but leave the automatic check in place so that I can choose to launch the update when I go home / to lunch / to a meeting rather than having my working day interrupted.
Side note: Visual Studio 2017 that I use at home manages to do this: there's a yellow flag button that tells me there are interesting notifications, including updates, and I can apply them from there when I am ready.
And it gets relaunched properly afterwards.
