Why does FIREFOX keep updating even though I have it set NOT TOO!

Posted

All I see in these community things are The QUESTIONS on the topic but NO SOLUTION. WHAT happened to Firefox, it used to actually WORK! Now it just ignores what I say and does it anyway. I have it checked and unchecked where it is suppose to be so that it DOES NOT update! YET it still does it! SO when is Firefox going to give SOLUTIONS instead of just adding another question to the same stuff... we know a lot of people are having the same problem... SO when are you guys going to wake up and FIX IT!

Mozilla removed the user option to completely disable Firefox program updates a few versions ago. Currently the only real "user control" for Firefox updates is Check for updates but let you choose to install them, but if the user ignores or misses seeing the message about an update being available Firefox will automatically install the update without waiting for an answer to "ask me later".

That is not something that Mozilla will fix; it is what it is.

No it doesn't solve my problem, But Chrome does. Guess Firefox isn't the right option anymore.

Hi You could try the Waterfox browser based on Firefox 56, which has the old configuration interface: https://www.waterfoxproject.org/en-US/
