I turned off Firefox updates because I'm sick and tired of having to download a new version at least once a week. So now I face a different problem. Every time I turn on Firefox I'm greeted by this annoying, unwanted pop-up spam message:

I want to disable this. I do not want to update, and I do not want to be reminded to update. Please don't waste both your and my time by replying "but you have to update". No I don't. I have nothing sensitive on this PC so even if I got infected by a virus or whatever because it's not the newest version, nothing bad will happen to me. At least nothing I consider as bad as having to update every single week. If there is no solution possible, I will simply stop using Firefox and use a different web browser instead. Thanks.

See https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates#manualappupdateonly

If this policy is enabled:

  1. The user will never be prompted to install updates
  2. Firefox will not check for updates in the background, though it will check automatically when an update UI is displayed (such as the one in the About dialog). This check will be used to show "Update to version X" in the UI, but will not automatically download the update or prompt the user to update in any other way.

Looks like that worked, thank you.
