Firefox auto-updated from 56 to 57 even though I configured it to not do that.
I had turned off auto-update in preferences, but FF automatically updated (from 56 to 57) in spite of the setting. This is not very nice; I didn't want it to do that. If you're going to ignore the auto-update preference, then there shouldn't be a no-auto-update option.

Force updated as running a insecure and unsupported browser. Support Volunteers can't make changes to Firefox nor have controll of anything.
