Hi,

I have firefox v56.02, set to download but not install updates.  

I really don't want any updates... Quantum is a disaster.

But I keep getting this annoying popup message (screenshot) "A new Firefox update is available" popup. Um yeah I know, a popup told me 10 minutes ago... They must be putting out updates very fast, because it pops up several times a day. Clicking 'not now' gets rid of it only till the next time it pops up.

How to turn it off please? I've seen instructions for other notifications but not Firefox?

Thanks!

You should make a backup of your Profile before going back and just because:
