How to disable autoupdate?
I've flipped to notify the setting in "about:preferences" to the other available one "Check for updates but let you choose to install them", but it automatically flips back to autoupdate after a while - I've had firefox updating on its own a few times because of that sometimes really messing up my extensions and settings. I prefer having control of my own, backing up the portable version myself and manual updates. I've also flipped to false these flags in "about:config": app.update.auto app.update.auto.migrated app.update.enabled but they aren't doing anything.

Click the menu button and select Options. Preferences. In the General panel, scroll down to the Firefox Updates section. Check Never check for updates (not recommended) and uncheck Automatically update search engines. Close the about:preferences page.
How do you completely turn off update checks in Firefox v64? You can use a policies.json file to disable updates for all users.
