Forum Response - Turning off auto-update


Note: Turning off the automatic update of Firefox is not recommended. Only the latest version of Firefox gets regular security updates and will keep you safe and sound on the internet.

However, if you really need to turn off the automatic update of Firefox, please follow these steps: In the Firefox window, click the new-fx-menu-button menu button at the top right corner, then select the Options menu item.

  1. From the Options window, click the Advanced panel.
  2. In the Advanced panel, click the Update tab.
  3. Under Firefox updates, select Never check for updates.
  4. Now click the OK button to apply the changes.

Please report back if this helped you.
