How do I stop FireFox from doing an auto update

Posted

I am running Linux Mint 15 and FireFox 23. When I click on preferences > advanced > update there are no checkboxs for how I want FireFox updated. I don't want anyone installing on my system without my knowledge. Where has this option been moved?
