The latest version (54) will not let me view my IP Camera as it will not run (blocks) the required plugin and have been advised by the manufacturer to downgrade Firefox to v51 (32-bit) or earlier. I did this, opened Firefox and was able to view the camera. Great ! Went to the Advanced options and set the browser NOT to update. However, when I closed it and then reopened it later it updated to v54 even though I had set it not to so I once again cannot view the camera.

How do I stop this auto update behaviour given that update feature was set to NOT TO UPDATE ?!?!?!?!?
