Stop auto updating of extension

Posted

I use the extension 'Tab Mix Plus' When they went to version 4.0.X , one of the functions was discontinued. I contacted them and they say there will be no change. I load an earlier version, but periodically it auto updates. I can reload it but this repeats. I have check the box for 'Check for updates, but let me choose...', but this does not work for updates of addons. Is there a manual way in 'about:config' that I can stop the auto update.

Additional System Details

Installed Plug-ins

  • Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
  • Foxit Reader Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape
  • IE Tab 2 Plug-in for Mozilla/Firefox

Application

  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/12.0

More Information

I manually reinstall TMP 0.3.8.6 or 7

you can disable auto-updates for a individual extension in the add-on manager by right-clicking it, then go to show more information & select "automatic updates: off"

There is no "automatic updates of" in this extension
