As an IT technical administrator, we need to gain complete control over updates through our enterprise distribution tools, we do not want users doing any updates. I have already done all the config tweaks to disable automatic updates, but those do not disable the "Check for Updates" feature\button in Help - About. How do I also disable that feature?

If you are disabling updates, you should be using the ESR version of Firefox, https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/, which allows for regular, small security updates and once a year larger updates (which you have time for qualification). You can then either leave this on auto-update (since it will only have a potentially breaking update once a year, all other updates are security only) or use something like cck2 (https://mike.kaply.com/cck2/) to customize your deployments.

Thanks Tyler ! I deploy the ESR version and understand the update frequency. Just would like to disable that feature for more reasons that what I stated above (i.e. deepfreeze). Thanks for your reply !
