    I added a warning on disabling add-on update checks to the "User-invoked content" Extensions subsection. I thought this might be needed after reading this blog post, linked in the "Additions to consider" discussion: https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/how-to-turn-off-add-on-updates/

    I also copied the steps to disable add-on update checks to the "Automatic updates and Security" Auto-update checking subsection, where most users would look for it, since this article no longer includes a Table of Contents.

    Could someone review my revision? I left it pending.
