I have Firefox 56.0.2 installed and do NOT want any updates (because of several old and not-compatible add-ons that I want to keep, such as SuperStart_).

I have configured Moizllia NOT to do any updates!

Still, Mozilla is every time asking - and installing! - the new version...

What can I do top prevent this ?

Regards, Hans
