Does anyone ELSE have FireFox shut down (just refuses to work) when you refuse to do the upgrade?

Every week - EVERY week, I get notification that I need to upgrade FireFox. If I refuse to do the upgrade, FireFox refuses to work after about 4-5 days. The longer I go… (read more)

Every week - EVERY week, I get notification that I need to upgrade FireFox. If I refuse to do the upgrade, FireFox refuses to work after about 4-5 days. The longer I go before I bow to the pressure, the LESS FireFox actually WORKS. Right now, I'm trying to read an email message. FireFox has basically shut down OTHER than this page. Anything else? Nope. I am seriously considering going back to the despised IE. I hate Windows, but this is SO ANNOYING! Shouldn't I have ANY say as to whether or not I WANT to upgrade? Because I am denied that choice. I either DO it, or FireFox will refuse to work. Thanks loads. Every upgrade, I spend DAYS getting things back to where I want them. I just get them right and I get notice of ANOTHER upgrade. Why not wait until you get it RIGHT??????

Stop Checking for Updates on Ubuntu Systems

I'm running Firefox 65.0.2 on Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 LTS.

I keep getting this very annoying popup telling me to update Firefox. I tried to download the package and install it but I'm having difficulty being somewhat new to Linux. I check the support pages and I find this:

"Note: If you use your Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox, you will need to wait for an updated package to be released to its package repository. This article only applies if you installed Firefox manually (without using your distribution's package manager)." (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release)

So, is there a way to stop the annoying popups while I wait for a release in the appropriate Ubuntu repository?

I work and suddenly must stop because firefox need to update. It is very annoying. Is it really so hard give users control on it? Give me notice and I`ll update when finish my current part of work. And why I cant disable auto-updates in options? It is really bad way. I must think about change browser first time in many years.

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… (read more)

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).
