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.

                                                                               Exit              Create New Profile

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.

On Win 10 / Firefox 91.0 I keep getting a popup saying I need to update FF with options to download or dismiss. When I go to "about FF" I am told I am current. This occurs about once a day no matter which option I choose. I have restarted FF several times for other reasons but the popup still occurs frequently.

As I work towards rolling out FF91esr to 250 PCs, and having the UI almost usable, I need to be able to integrate a number of preferences to each browser.

Does the group policy cover EVERY preference available?

I read on gHacks that Mozilla ripped out yet another feature - the ability to use the user.js preferences file. I must admit, I haven't confirmed this yet as I've only just finished reading it. I believe the user.js could not lock settings anyway?

I do have about 80-100 settings that I want to integrate. I can't simply replace their prefs.js because they will have undoubtedly set some preferences for themselves, which we do not forbid (yet).

So, without wiping out any preferences users may have set for themselves, how can I integrate the settings I need, assuming the GPO doesn't cover every conceivable preference?

disclaimer: Yes, I realize it is possible that some of the settings I'm going to integrate *might* conflict with preferences they've set for themselves. That will be dealt with internally by policy communications.
