How can I permanently turn off mozilla's "new version" pop-up window

Veröffentlicht

A couple versions ago, a pop-up persistantly, annoyingly, INSISTS on popping up regularly when I'm trying to use the browser. How can I permanently turn off mozilla's "new version" pop-up window. Pop-ups should aready be disabled. I've gone into about:config and tried all the settings that seem to be relevent.

This is about annoying enough to start shopping for other browsers.

The best thing to do is to update Firefox. Updates contain important security fixes and so remaining on an old version is a very bad idea. Please update to Firefox 68, which was released this morning

The whole point is I do not have the bandwidth to do the update. "automatic" updates are disabled for a reason and this is not the forum to discuss.

STOP messing with my desktop. One (1) notification is quaint. But I do not need/want to be continuously assaulted with messages. Mozilla is not my Mamma and I am old enough NOT to need to be nagged.

This is my computer and I don't care you you "think" I should do.

Whether the update is 50MB or 5b, that is not the problem. The problem, as stated, is how to disable the notification. Updating is not an option at this time.

How can the pop-up window be permanently disabled.

Great. Done... am waiting to see if anything pops up... so far so good (after a few minutes).
