Auto Update and then a restart
WOW Surprise; FF just updated itself and needs to restart.... here was me thinking I had set it to notify me when there is an update, but it looks like a previous update removed that function. I suddenly found I couldn't open usable tabs, all I would get is a lovely message telling me FF had updated and needed to restart, but not to worry because it will restore my session! Now, I had 3 sessions open with each having 15-20 tabs, and they all had to be closed and reloaded... Oh well it looks like I don't have a choice so here goes... I clicked restart and waited, it didn't restart! Ok, so I have to manually do the relaunch thing, great, my 3 FF windows are returning..... But oh wow each tab has to reload, the udtube vids all returned to there start position, my DuckDuck search pages and are now blank! So all told I lost about 10 minutes and some work because someone knows what is best for me and just went ahead and changed the browsers settings. I get why this was done, I mean when ms started pulling stunts like this their users were all super impressed and heaped so much praise on them it was a little embarrassing... Oh what fun!

Firefox 56 is no longer supported. Please update to Firefox 68, which is the current version, and let us know if you are having issues still
Thanks for the reply. The machine(s) this happened on are on version 68 (i.e. they updated).
R.e. if you are having issues still to which issue does this refer; The removal of user update control, The forced restart after an uncontrolled update; And/ or the fact the browser needed to be manually restarted resulting in some pages being reset?
Please update your machine then :) 56 is not supported.
Can you please clarify the issue?
