Did mozilla remove the option in advanced preferences to silence reminders to update. Its incredibly annoying to have a popup each time I open the browser inviting me to update.

Chosen solution

You can possibly increased the interval for the update check and increase the value of app.update.interval on the about:config 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. https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md or https://winaero.com/blog/disable-updates-firefox-63-above/

You can use a policies.json file in the distribution folder in the Firefox installation folder instead as also listed in the article, so no need to use GPO keys in the Windows Registry. • https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-policiesjson
