I don't want to update my firefox. I was able to disable automatic updates. But the popup keeps coming once in a while. I need to get rid of that popup somehow.

Please let me know if there is a way to disable it other than collapsing NAV Bar.

Hi yash292k11,

You can disable updates using Enterprise Policy JSON

1. Open a plain text editor like notepad or notepad++ and paste the following code in it: {

"policies": {
   "DisableAppUpdate": true
 }

}

2. Save the file as a json file named: policies.json

3. Go to the installation directory of Firefox and create a new folder with the name: distribution. On Windows the directory is: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox (x86) [if running 32bit Firefox in 64bit Windows]

4. Now just copy the policies.json file into this folder.

Thanks for your reply.

I tried setting the below ones but still I get the popup message "policies": {

       "DisableAppUpdate": true,

"AppAutoUpdate": false, "AppUpdateURL": "https://www.dummsite.com", }

I tried those fields in the link you have provided before I raised my question. Looks like it didn't get me the solution I was looking for.

{

   "policies": {
       "DisableAppUpdate": true,

"AppAutoUpdate": false, "AppUpdateURL": "https://www.dummsite.com", "PopupBlocking": true, "ManualAppUpdateOnly": true

   } 

}

Check the about:policies page, to see if there are any active policies.
