I have upgraded as far as my computer will go , but it still asks me to upgrade, how do I get it to stop?
I have a MAC and cannot upgrade the operating system. Firefox keeps asking me to upgrade and I cannot. How do I stop it from asking me every single time I go to a different page?? Same with google and gmail. I cannot upgrade anymore. How do I stop it from asking all the time?
thanks to everyone for all the help but after trying all the suggestions , the conclusion, more or less a solution, is to not use Firefox anymore!! Nothing gets rid if the real issue so, sorry but good bye Firefox!! Thanks all......Read this answer in context 0
Additional System Details
Every time Firefox opened
This started when...
when the new upgrade came out
I don't know--whatever goes with this system
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.4; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20120306 Firefox/3.6.28
Go to Options window > Advanced panel > Update tab > Firefox updates session and check Never check for updates (not recommended: security risk) then click Ok to save it, exit firefox and restart it.
see for info : Options window - Advanced panel - Update tab

doesn't work on a MAC--there is no options window.
sorry, content > advance panel etc.
wrong again...... Firefox > Preferences > advanced........!
it didn't work. now what?
Open about:config (type that into the address bar) and set these settings:
- app.update.auto - set to false
- app.update.enabled - set to false
Modified by finitarry
they are both set to false but it didn't work--I'm still getting the same messages.
in case you're referring to the yellow infobar about outdated plugins, change "plugins.hide_infobar_for_outdated_plugin" in about:config to true. you might also want to use an addon like flashblock to only enable the flash plugin when you need it (like when you're watching a video on youtube) in order to mitigate the risk while surfing the web,
firefox also won't support the ppc architecture any longer, however if you want to use an up-to-date browser based on firefox you can switch to "tenfourfox" - the downside is, it doesn't support plugins at all: Firefox no longer works with Mac OS X 10.4 or PowerPC processors

Can you attach a screenshot?
Use a compressed image type like PNG or JPG to save the screenshot and make sure that you do not exceed the maximum file size (1 MB).
