I do not want to migrate to the new version of Firefox because it will take me MONTHS to get it back to the way I had it, so I want it to stop nagging me?

How do I get the nagging to stop? I am NEVER going to migrate to the nightmare called the "new version". I've been through this before, several times, and I've regretted past changes for months every time I "upgraded" to "features" I have no use whatsoever for. Browsers are not supposed to be "Rube Goldberg" devices.

I do not own a cell phone either.

What's wrong with "simple and easy = fast"?

Adding 10 Gigs of code to add more useless features, while completely eradicating everything that I already had in place, is not something I want to do, ever again.

Write some code to eliminate the nagging "upgrade" pop-up window on Firefox start-up and on all subsequent tabs and windows, please.

Thank you for your consideration,

Dr. RN Boyd, Ph. D.
