I have read the other posts on this questions.
I have a very unique use case. My grandfather is 101 and still going strong. He loves his computer and regularly has in-depth questions that he calls me with.
The firefox (latest version) updates are causing him serious problems though. It seems like they are very regular - I know this is good, but in this case, being 101, I just want him to be able to use his computer without being bothered with the updates. I am aware of the different options, but unfortunately there is not a "turn off" option (why!). I did read something about modifying a .json file though. On a side note, I'm a computer guy and have been involved with IT for over 30 years. The firefox updates are a "bother" for other people I work with as well.
Does somebody have the code they can share to turn off these updates? When this stupid covid is over I will be seeing him regularly and will perform the updates myself.
