Firefox can't update to the latest version

A couple versions back, I started getting this pop-up message each morning, "Firefox can't update to the latest version". I downloaded a newer version and upgraded manually a couple times, now up to 70.0, and the pop-up keeps happening. I see a couple other people have reported a similar problem, one here was blown off because they were, supposedly, running a beta version. I'm not running beta. The other one I found was fixed by doing something to the registry, but I'm on Linux, not MS Windows so there's no registry (at least none that I know about).

The one other symptom I've noticed is that when I bring up the "About Firefox" window, it takes a really long time to figure out that "Firefox is up to date". And it always says it's up to date (if I wait long enough) even when there's a newer version available.

It would be greatly helpful if that pop-up would say *why* it couldn't update itself but it does not give any useful information.

Thanks for any help on this.

How do I stop a 'restart to update firefox' pending update?

Window 7 sp1 I checked '%LOCALAPPDATA%\Mozilla\updates' and the folder is EMPTY. I was on v67.0.x and it would have updated to the brand new v70. Tried installing v68.0.2I had the installer for and it opened in a new window without my favorites, saved logons, etc. I clicked on the firefox icon pinned to the lower taskbar and it opened v68.0.2 with all my favorites, logons, etc. Only seems to be one firefox application in Program Files. I Pasted 'about:profiles' into both and attached is the screen grab. Need to endup running v68.0.2 or v69 but NOT the just released v70. Why does an install or update always change my preferences to automatically install updates??

Firefox обновился в фоновом режиме и требует перезапуска. Хотя в настройках выбрано "Проверять наличие обновлений, но позволять вам решать, устанавливать ли их"

Браузер обновился сам, без предупреждения, проигнорировав мои настройки, и не позволяет продолжить работу без перезапуска. О найденном обновлении он сообщил относительно давно. Я его игнорировал, кажется, больше недели, потому что не хотел перезагружать несколько сотен вкладок. Компьютер всё это время был включен, а браузер оставался открыт. Вопроса, собственно, три: 1. Это баг или фича? 2. Если это фича, то как её отключить, чтобы такое не повторилось в будущем? 3. Можно ли что-то сделать сейчас, чтобы продолжить работу, не перезапуская браузер?

ОС - Linux mint. Firefox установлен НЕ из репозитория, а как отдельный deb пакет, скачанный с официального сайта Мозиллы. Версия 68.0.2 (64-битный).
