Stop Offering Updates

I need Thunderbird to never even offer updates. My 97-year old mother can't respond appropriately to the unsolicited update prompts. I will manually check and install updates.

I am running 78.3.1 (32-bit) on Windows 10.

I was using the following process but it quit working on a recent update:

1) On the top menu, click on Tools->Options to enter the Options window.

2) Then click on Advanced and select the General tab.

3) Click on the Config Editor… button and the scary window saying “This might void you warranty !” should appear again. Just click on “I’ll be careful I promise!” to carry on.

4) Then in the Filter filed type app.update.enabled. It should be set to true, double-click on the line to set it to false.

There are two choices in the GUI, automatically install updates and ask to install updates. Of the hidden prefs, which are never documented. I would guess app.update.service.enabled = False might stop it

Thanks for the prompt response.

I believe that I have that set already.

You can also uninstall the Mozilla Updater Service via Control Panel.

This is what I found on the Mozilla Maintenance Service:

I realize that this is from 2012 but it's all I could find. This sounds to me like Thunderbird will still try to update. That this service just bypasses the UAC prompt.

Maybe it's different now.

I'll try anything at this point.

I uninstalled Mozilla Maintenance Service but still am offered updates to Thunderbird.

Can I downgrade? How far back do I need to go to make Thunderbird "quiet"? Where do I get the bits?

Then how do I keep it from upgrading?

Use a Registry entry as described here http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=3063508
