Hi, In a Citrix desktop environment, we've installed Firefox as the default browser. When updates are available, users get the popup when opening the browser that an update is waiting. But they can't install the update since the Citrix desktop is a locked environment in which they can only run the apps we allow them to run. We also certainly don't want users to start updating firefox by themselves.

The popup always generates a number of servicedesk calls, but we can't spend the manpower in updating our Citrix environment everytime firefox has an update.

Is there an option to disable the popup?

How do you completely turn off update checks in Firefox 64? You can use a policies.json file to disable updates for all users. https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md
