Firefox 88.01 - Update Not Sticking

Firefox has been doing this to me for the past couple months, but Ill get an annoying notification saying I havent updated firefox, even though firefox is updated. This used to happen on the "nightly" version of firefox everyday, which is expected, but on a normal release, this is not supposed to happen.

How can I fix? This seems to be a bug - one location says its "up to date" the other is a notification telling me to "update".

See attached screenshot with update icon in the menu, while the "About" menu says its up-to-date.

If I go into about:config, app.update.url.manual is set to: https://www.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/firefox/

I am trying to downgrade to ver.68.10.0 but after installing ff is updating automatically. I've tried the following advice, but it is still updating. Any ideas?

"Important: By default, Firefox is set for automatic updates. To prevent Firefox from automatically updating itself after you install an older version, you'll need to change your Firefox update settings: Click the menu button Fx57Menu and select Options. In the General panel, go to the Firefox Updates section."

Automatic Update for Thunderbird asks for Update, allthow up to date

Dear Thunderbird Team,

I am using Thunderbird and I am (was) very happy with it!

Since Thunderbird Version 78.9.1 (20210406220621) I am often asked to Update Thunderbird, although Thunderbird is up to date with 78.10.1 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 Home.

Thunderbird asks for Update but did not do automatically, instead I was diverted to the Thunderbird Web-sight and I had to do manually download the latest Version. After manually installing the latest Thunderbird Version I an still am asked every day to do an Update, although my Thunderbird is up to date with 78.10.1. (64-Bit).

I am running a desktop PC with: Edition Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Installed on am ‎18.‎06.‎2020 Systembuild 19042.985 Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.2020.0

Thunderbird Settings are: Update automatic installation, and use a background process for installation of updates.

What can I do do to fix this problem? Kind regards

The way I use linux is to change distrobutions occasionally but since /home and all other partitiosn are separate from root, the only partition I ever reformat and install is /root.

Recently, I was moving from MX Linux I believe to Linux Mint 19.1, for the first time Thunderbird said that it cant read what is there? If I remember the backup file for my thunderbird is something like. ta830vm8.default

This hasnt happened to me in about 7 years and since that time so much has changed in linux that the languge is garbled on the net, not only for linux, but even for versions of the same distro. Most posts that I see are ancient and I trying to translate what they mean compared to how things work today, it is difficult

The ta830vm8.default file is on my /home partition and has never be altered. It is also in my backup system.

Since Firefox could not recognize what I have, I thought maybe I could go to my backup and see if I can bring back everything. I just need to know how to do it for the present time and how it is done today.

The other sites keep saying in Windows, or Mac. I need a straight explaination for now, and Linux Mint 19.4. Look forward to hearing from you.

FF updated to 88.0.1 and I don't get any pocket articles on start up or new page.

I check about:config and both pocket setting are set to true. I disabled it and enables it a few times and still issue persists.

My other PC did the same update and no issue on that one. Settings are the same in about:config.

in this answer [to Firefox 67 broke my profile] , Moderator cor-el has answered - - 5/22/19, 8:52 PM Try to remove compatibility.ini in this profile. You may have to edit prefs.js as well. -

Though he/ she has not elaborated what changes are required to be made in prefs.js to make it work smoothly without corrupting the profile.

Please tell what changes are to be made in prefs.js?

Thanks.
