How does one turn off the Firefox Updates completely ? I have disabled the auto updates but with multiple FF windows open the update request tab that comes up is causing me problems. There needs be an option to turn it off completely so only manual updates can be done.

Its getting to the stage with this where I will dump Firefox completely if this isnt done.

Also feedback to Mozilla has been disabled for months. Whats happening there ?

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
