Can we get advance notification of an update release?

Posted

Can we either get an advance notification of an update to firefox? We are running a WSUS server but do not plan to extend patching support into and other 3rd party platform this year, but updates are really causing problems with a Cloud platform that we use. If there was a way to get some sort of e-mail notification, we can at least plan for it and get the updates done before our users jump on their PCs...

Many thanks

Simon

My pleasure   !
In addition   (although maybe a bit redundant) : 3-bar menu => Options => Advanced Under the 'Update' mini tab and under 'Firefox updates' : you could check : 'check for updates, but let you choose whether to install them'.
You have a great day as well   !
