How do I completely disable checking for "updates"?
I have a ZTE Open running the latest official release which is v1.1 and I would like to permanently disable checking for "updates".
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/33.0.1750.146 Safari/537.36
On the Firefox menu bar go to: tools>options>advanced>update and make your update choices.
Whoops, sorry! The instructions I just gave apply to desktop Firefox, don't know about ZTE. May be the same, though.
There is no menu bar; this is a Firefox OS issue, not Firefox browser.
I've just checked and effectively there is only daily, weekly and monthly options. And I use the 1.3 of the system. I'm afraidThey forgot to code the "never check" button :-)
Currently this option is not available in the settings menu (Settings->Device Information-> Software Updates) but you can increase the period of comprovación: daily, weekly or monthly.
That's what I figured. I'd file a bug regarding the lack of a "never" option, but if the UX designers want it that way, there is no point in giving user feedback.
Currently there is a "Daily", "Weekly" and "Monthly" option. However, since we value our users, I will file a bug for this and will post back shortly with a link to it.
Bug 984735 has been filed.

Andrew, any sense I had that Mozilla cares about user input was dashed to pieces when multiple users and at least one OEM submitted bugs (or commented on bugs) that referenced the keyboard change from WYSIWYG to ALLCAPS that the UX 'designers' decided was what users wanted.
Since then, I just assume that all UI issues are "as designed" and user input isn't needed.
There are always the possibility that once Firefox OS is truly stable, our UX team and developers will look at old bugs and at user feedback and implement those. At this stage in time and point, anything is still possible since Firefox OS is still in it's growing stages.
Yes, in the future they may listen to users; but right now they are ignoring input from the early adopters who are actually using the firefox os on a daily basis.
Jezra, that is not quite true. We do listen. At least I can speak for myself that I do listen. Sometimes I may have something clogging my ears though. (Joking about the last sentence.)
In all seriousness, I sometimes do get bogged down with things and it does take a little bit longer for me to respond. Jezra, I do invite you to ping me on irc or email me. It may take a few days, but I will respond. My mozilla email is email@example.com I work as one of the QA team members on the b2g project and value community help and service.
I (and some other people) will be going through the unconfirmed bugs soon and trying to help get some of them pushed soon. I cannot guarantee that I will get them all pushed; having said that I am willing to listen to what the contributors have to say.
In response to the question at hand, Andrew is right. There are only 3 options; we should probably have "never" as an option. Thanks for filing the bug Andrew.
nhirata, you may listen, but do you make design decisions that affect the users?
