Window 7 sp1 I checked '%LOCALAPPDATA%\Mozilla\updates' and the folder is EMPTY. I was on v67.0.x and it would have updated to the brand new v70. Tried installing v68.0.2I had the installer for and it opened in a new window without my favorites, saved logons, etc. I clicked on the firefox icon pinned to the lower taskbar and it opened v68.0.2 with all my favorites, logons, etc. Only seems to be one firefox application in Program Files. I Pasted 'about:profiles' into both and attached is the screen grab. Need to endup running v68.0.2 or v69 but NOT the just released v70. Why does an install or update always change my preferences to automatically install updates??

Still having the problem with the pending update. Have to hit 'no' for win7 warning about program making a change to the computer.

Now Firefox displays the Firefox Download/Not Now dialog when I start but message reads 'Firefox can't ypdate to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it'. Screenshot attached.
