So I've disabled Firefox updates because of the personal preferences. It keeps nagging me every day with the modal to update. How do I disable this annoying useless feature?

Firefox 85.0 on mac os.

I've tried searching "about:config" for all preferences that contain "update" and look like timers and changed the timestamps to something in the far future. Still no dice, the update dialog keeps appearing every day like clockwork.

This thread will probably get archived and locked, but I'll restart another one anyway. Firefox seems to be degenerating in terms of UX an stability, and especially if people are running custom OSs like lineage OS, it's unlikely that the latest android version will actually install at all. As a result, a lot of people are installing older versions of firefox, especially versions which allow access to "about:config" so firefox can be modified to be usable.

When googing for this, there are a lot of non-mozilla websites offering downloads, filled with God knows what malware added. It would be better if there was a permanent archive of all the previous versions, including the nightlys, so that people could at least access the older, working, versions from a trusted source. You might think this would be a bad security choice, but the current situation is worse.

I have an old PC desktop which I would like to replace with a newer model. I want to get a used one with Windows 7 on it. I know Windows 7 is no longer supported but I have a lot of old software that I use, some not often, and have no desire to purchase new software. I was told that I could not download Firefox onto a newer PC with Windows 7. Is this true? I do have a laptop with Windows 10 that I use for on line ordering, etc. I like the desktop as it has a decent keyboard and mouse.

Firefox fails to start even after reinstall

On one computer I have deleted everything from Firefox including the folders within Apps Roaming except for one folder. There in one folder "41A66E7EE5E1" within Profiles which I cannot delete. It holds the files prefs.js and sessionCheckpoints.json which were created at 20/02/2021 and I cannot delete those.

My new installation is dated 24/07/2021.

There is nothing in the properties of those two files to suggest an issue. I do find however that when I seek to change the Property/Security to Administrator (I should be able to do that) I receive a dialog box that "the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

Please advise on how I address this.
