How to turn off automatic updates.
Since I have updated firefox I now get automatic updates, as I have a poor/slow connection and because I simply do NOT want updates automatically installed I want to find out how to turn off this annoying"feature".

Update the Flash plugin to the latest version.
1.At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button (Tools menu in Windows XP) and then click Options. 2.Click the Advanced panel. 3.Click the Update tab. The auto-update options are displayed.

I want to turn it off because I am fed up with the daily updating of firefox. Its pathetic. I want to go back to Firefox 3.6.23 actually. I've downloaded it at FileHippo and do NOT want these updates to happen after that.
I understand you. This new (version) updates from firefox is really really annoying. Previously you knew only the version changes may affect your pluggins/etc and would easily do the minor ones. But know, version 7 is in fact either 3.4.2 or 4.0.0 which is stupid. I am trying other browsers now and will switch out soon.
