Update notification pops up repeatedly even after I decline it.

Veröffentlicht

Firefox is periodically giving me a notification that there is an update available. It does this multiple times a day, generally appearing to happen if Firefox has been "not in active use" ie minimized for some period of time. I've already clicked "not now", so I shouldn't be seeing it anymore.

How do I disable it? I don't want to update unless I absolutely have to (ie back when all the addon certificates expired) due to Mozilla's penchant for making unwanted changes to the UI. I just want the notification to go away and not appear again.

As it is, this is basically a form of very annoying spam coming from the browser itself.

I don't know why you get such frequent notifications. The regular release of Firefox does an update check at 12 hour intervals. You can check that here:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste update and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If the app.update.interval preference is bolded and "modified" you can right-click > Reset to restore the default value of 43200 seconds

43200 = 60 seconds x 60 minutes x 12 hours

If you prefer every 24 hours, double-click and enter 86400 instead. (I haven't tested that myself.)

By the way, the latest update is a minor .1 feature update for Firefox 67:

Firefox 68 isn't scheduled to drop until July 9th.

I want it disabled, actually. If I want to update the browser I will check for updates manually. I do not want the browser to do it on its own, or to notify me of updates.
