How to hinder FF from updating to latest version?

Posted

It seem to bypass my chosen setting of looking for updates and let me choose to install them. Next time I start FF, it is automatically updated. Is there a registry setting maybe I can try to set to hinder this, or any other way?

I would preferrably use latest version, but have services I use where FF screws up the login page. I know you would suggest to contact the supplier of the service to tell them to update at their end, but it will not be possible in this case.

How do you completely turn off update checks in Firefox v64? You can use a policies.json file to disable updates for all users. https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md or https://winaero.com/blog/disable-updates-firefox-63-above/
