Within the past 3-4 week, I am constantly getting messages that FF has updates. These messages are coming randomly throughout the day and when I select "Dismiss", it updates anyway. These updates have caused me to lose bookmarks and saved log in for certain websites. This is frustrating. I cannot go through this everyday, all day. This is my work computer and my technology department cannot seem to find or figure out the issue. I no longer have the option to turn off updates. This is happening on my desktop only. No issues with the laptop. Never had issues with FF updates before; updates would occur overnight and bookmarks were never lost. WHAT GIVES?????????? I have attached screenshots. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the browser. Cannot use Chrome, Edge or IE for the software I use for work; all modules will not work with those browsers. This is a brand new desktop; less than 6 months old.

What is causing the browser to revert back to previous version? The previous version was 85.02. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled v86.0. Eventually, the browser reverts back to the previous version. When I tried to open the browser, the following message appears:

You've launched an older version of Firefox Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for the installation of Firefox.
