Firefox cannot keep track of the fact that it's already up to date

Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6

Here's the routine with FF on this machine: If FF 68.0.2 is running, after a while I will try to open a new tab and be told "Sorry we need to do one small thing to keep going, FF has been updated in the background, Restart FF" I do so. It opens up a new, clean profile in a new window (About FF now says 68.0.1 in this version of FF, and it downloads 68.0.2 and prompts to Restart FF (again)). At which point it runs "a new helper tool" and re-updates FF to 68.0.2. I then have to mess with about:profiles to go back to my profile. Things then run routinely for a few hours or a day, before the whole routine starts over again.

Alternately, if FF 68.0.2 is not running, if I open it (after opening and closing it several times without issue), I will get a message that "You've launched an older version of FF, Create New Profile or Quit". Create New Profile leads me through the routine above.

Versions of the above routine have happened not just between 68.0.2 and 68.0.1, but also between earlier version updates. That is, this has been going on for months. It does seem in the last couple of weeks that the interval of time has shortened and I'm having to do this routine everyday or even multiple times a day. I have no problems like this with FF on any other machine.

I've tried:

Trashing FF and re-dl'ing from Mozilla. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Cache/Mozilla and Firefox folders. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles (and re-signing in to retrieve my existing bookmarks etc and re-setting up View and other Preferences). No dice.

If anyone has any ideas, I'll be grateful, thanks in advance.

Firefox обновился в фоновом режиме и требует перезапуска. Хотя в настройках выбрано "Проверять наличие обновлений, но позволять вам решать, устанавливать ли их"

Браузер обновился сам, без предупреждения, проигнорировав мои настройки, и не позволяет продолжить работу без перезапуска. О найденном обновлении он сообщил относительно давно. Я его игнорировал, кажется, больше недели, потому что не хотел перезагружать несколько сотен вкладок. Компьютер всё это время был включен, а браузер оставался открыт. Вопроса, собственно, три: 1. Это баг или фича? 2. Если это фича, то как её отключить, чтобы такое не повторилось в будущем? 3. Можно ли что-то сделать сейчас, чтобы продолжить работу, не перезапуская браузер?

ОС - Linux mint. Firefox установлен НЕ из репозитория, а как отдельный deb пакет, скачанный с официального сайта Мозиллы. Версия 68.0.2 (64-битный).

Hi all. Seems like after updates, my computer slows down. It has become so recognizable, I know when the registry errors appear, as my computer performance falls off. I must use Reginout Registry cleaner, and CC Cleaner to restore performance. Along with any FireFox updates, my bookmarks have all been deleted many times over. I no longer attempt to re-install, as they continually get deleted, and so simple fix is available to me that I can understand. Thank you.

Does anyone ELSE have FireFox shut down (just refuses to work) when you refuse to do the upgrade?

Every week - EVERY week, I get notification that I need to upgrade FireFox. If I refuse to do the upgrade, FireFox refuses to work after about 4-5 days. The longer I go before I bow to the pressure, the LESS FireFox actually WORKS. Right now, I'm trying to read an email message. FireFox has basically shut down OTHER than this page. Anything else? Nope. I am seriously considering going back to the despised IE. I hate Windows, but this is SO ANNOYING! Shouldn't I have ANY say as to whether or not I WANT to upgrade? Because I am denied that choice. I either DO it, or FireFox will refuse to work. Thanks loads. Every upgrade, I spend DAYS getting things back to where I want them. I just get them right and I get notice of ANOTHER upgrade. Why not wait until you get it RIGHT??????

I'm running Firefox 65.0.2 on Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 LTS.

I keep getting this very annoying popup telling me to update Firefox. I tried to download the package and install it but I'm having difficulty being somewhat new to Linux. I check the support pages and I find this:

"Note: If you use your Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox, you will need to wait for an updated package to be released to its package repository. This article only applies if you installed Firefox manually (without using your distribution's package manager)." (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release)

So, is there a way to stop the annoying popups while I wait for a release in the appropriate Ubuntu repository?

We have deployed ESR version 60.2 (most current release). We have the config to force an update as it is available and silently install the updates suppressing any notifications. However, what most of our users are seeing is a constant prompt (as often as once a minute) to 'Download a fresh copy of Firefox'. If you follow the suggested link, it takes you to download Firefox Quantum. This feels like a bug. We do not want this version of the browser so it is unclear why it continually is taking users to this link. Its very difficult to ignore because it takes up the corner of the screen until dismissed.

After doing an update it would have been nice to receive a notification to let me know that I should restart the browser but instead I am being prevented from opening a link in a new tab just because I have updated the browser among other things in the background. This is will only serve to discourage me from doing an update while I'm using the browser. Now it says that I could have restored the session but as you tell by the little purple mask in the top right corner of the image I've uploaded- I was using the browser in Private-mode so that won't happen and I will get a "Firefox is having trouble restoring your tabs" message if I did a reboot. I had typed whole bunch of stuff in one tab and I had ended up loosing that because I couldn't open a link in a new tab (using Ctrl+left-Click). Now even if a person isn't in Private-mode there are still plenty of reasons for not doing a reboot right after an update like it's possible that a person has to wait for internet access forcing a reboot like this will only make people curse the developers. In my case obviously I was in a private session and I wanted to finish working on something before doing a reboot and in the mean time I should be able to use the browser normally like would be able to use it if I hadn't done an update. In short people shouldn't be prevented from opening a link in new tab just because they've updated the browser. That should go without saying.

Just to mess with the user there's a nice little cartoon on the left with an unplugged extension cord.

So I have a strange one... I'm using Firefox Developer Edition and I'm currently on version 69.0b15 (64-bit). My Windows operating system shows Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit...

Here's the problem: when I go into "Help" and then click on "About" to apply any available updates from the Aurora channel, I'll click on "Apply Updates" only to see if constantly twirl the little twirly icon around but never finish. The update I'm trying to install is 70.0b5.

If I go into Computer Management / Windows Logs / Application, I can see entries being lodged for the following:

The program or feature "\??\C:\Users\<My User Account>\AppData\Local\Firefox Developer Edition\updater.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatibity with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.

Can someone please help me here? I have a Windows 10 system sitting on the same desk right next to this workstation and it updates fine. I've also tried to update using elevated privileges, different compatibility modes (i.e. - running the updater.exe for Windows 7), etc.--nothing seems to fix this that I can tell.

I work and suddenly must stop because firefox need to update. It is very annoying. Is it really so hard give users control on it? Give me notice and I`ll update when finish my current part of work. And why I cant disable auto-updates in options? It is really bad way. I must think about change browser first time in many years.

Hello! I managed to disable downloading updates automatically by setting DisableAppUpdate to "true". Now, whenever I want to update the browser manually via help>about steps, it shows "Updates disabled by your system administrator". Every time I have to download the binaries to update, is it possible to ONLY stop DOWNLOADING updates automatically but still have update function working in the about dialog? There used to be an option in the settings, it seems like that option is hidden in the recent releases.
