How do I delete a downloaded Firefox update on the Mac?

Posted

I've got Firefox 46.0.1 on MacOS X (10.11.6). When I click "About Firefox" it tells me "Restart Firefox to Update"... which I absolutely don't want. This will break my Selenium configuration.

I do have "Check For Updates" unchecked... but it's already been downloaded. Is it possible for me to delete the downloaded file and proceed?
