Thunderbird auto updating to 102 even after putting all hacks in to NOT update
Have used Thunderbird for years, decades even, on multiple PC's, family and friends, and home PC's. Even donated a few times over those years but this one has me stumped and honestly a bit miffed.
I got 102 update and it completely broke my 2 POP and 1 IMAP accounts. New Passwords, cleared files, all the business you find here and online. Saw someone revert back to v91 which I had prior. Did that, worked like a charm and the prior existing accounts that did NOT work; started working again instantly. Proves I had the right accounts/passwords.
Next day, launch TB and it's updated again to 102; hmm. Downgrade again a second time on 2 PC's and go my business. It's now been 4 days and I've put registry keys in, used Config Editor and did all the "do not auto update" things I've read and still, today after a long and wicked day; I find starting TB it's yet again auto updated to 102.
Help please? I'm an IT guy of over 30 years and this one has me stumped and doing side-eye and I don't like it. Is there an honest and true way to NOT UPDATE to 102? Sorry, upset and have never had an issue *ever* with TB these years but this one is quite annoying downgrading daily.
Thank you Ictinike (off to downgrade a 5th time)

Try going to config editor and setting app.update.auto to false. My thinking is that, if this is set, as soon as your revert to 91 and start it, the update begins. This may not work, but it also might.
Have done all that. Still continues to update even though I wish it not. Unsure what to do at this point as it's driving me mad and the only way I get solace is to let it run and not close it because if I do, I have to downgrade again, and again, and again.
thanks for the reply!
