Firefox keeps trying to update and to install the Software updater even though I opted out

Every time I try to open Firefox it asks me for permission to install Firefox Software Updater. I then say no and Firefox opens with a notification to update to the latest version. I opted out from updates but the only option available is for the Firefox to ask before updating, there is no option to opt out definitively. Is there any solution to stop notifications and installing attempts?

Thanks in advance

I found a solution myself. Just go to the ...\Programs\Mozilla Firefox\ folder and delete the Updater. No more update prompts or Firefox trying to install unwanted software!
