So I want my firefox browser to update the stable versions only i.e.against only the release version and not any other version ? How do I do it ? Would anyone pleasen helpme ? Thanking you.

By downloading a Release version to be on Release channel.

A Release version would never give a update to a build on Beta, Aurora, Nightly or the ESR channels. A build on one channel does not get a update from another channel.

Note that the channel-prefs.js file in the \defaults\pref folder in the Firefox program folder determines the what update channel this Firefox installation has.

  • (64 bit Windows) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\"
