How do I PREVENT firefox from updating to version 29?

Period, nothing else, end of story. Please don't defend why I need to upgrade, and don't tell me about security issues & other nonsense, I really don't care and honestly don't believe it anyway.

I've uninstalled 29, and reinstalled an earlier version, set it to NEVER check for updates, and when I rebooted the computer and relaunched firefox, I was looking at vers. 29.

I've tried this numerous times with different versions of firefox, and used system restore a few times as well to get me back to a point before 29 came into the picture at all, and set the browser to never check for updates... but as soon as I reboot... 29 again!

Has "big brother" bought out mozilla or what? What is in 29 that WE DON'T WANT but they won't let us NOT have?


Or... Is it even possible, since apparently my "never check for updates" preference doesn't matter anymore?

Thanks for your help!
