The auto-update will pop up in front of playing videos. How do I stop the update reminder popup-spam?
I work in video editing, and find this to be a constant issue. I am often times showing new cuts to colleges, watching videos for research, editing video, or even just trying to relax, and it will pop-up regardless of what is happening.
I don't want it to update in the background without permission. I don't necessarily always want the newest version. I don't always have time to run the instillation while running my work stuff on my computer. I don't mind having to dig through menus when/if I need to update it, but I will do that on my own.
I have really liked using Firefox, but this is becoming more spam-y then some websites for me (and those even won't go over playing video). Is there a just, "Don't show this again" checkbox that I am not seeing or something?
I will have to switch to another browser because of the interrupted workflow problems with it, which is not ideal for me. I really hope there is just a simple solution that I don't know about.

Turn off automatic updates, and you won't see that message.
Advanced > Updates in Firefox preferences. Never check for updates (not recommended security risk)
I checked: "Check for updates but let you choose to install them." The reminder box still pops up 3-4 times in each session. I'm guessing that never checking for updates (not recommended) would stop the box from showing up.
