Currently running 115.4.0esr, 64 bit... I have auto updates disabled via the json policy, yet every day I keep getting the warning about an update required and must go to download it... How can I disable the warning? It is annoying.

As well, while here in the forums, I did the "about firefox" thing to get the version and despite my settings, FF downloaded an update and wants me to restart to install it... what if I dont want it?

I get that you folks want to make things .... right... but there have been many changes that I am not fond of. Please respect my privacy and let me update by my own choice.

Thanks :)

Gary

Current 115 ESR is 115.5.0.

Version 115.5.0, first offered to ESR channel users on November 21, 2023

On Windows 7 there is no need to disable updates since this platform in no longer supported for current releases as those require Windows 10 or newer. Firefox 115 ESR only receives security updates and no new features and you can't update beyond 115.

The last major update you will get will be Fx 115.15.0 esr in September 2024. These updates are not for features but mainly for security and perhaps stability fixes if need be as you can see with the Release notes for the Fx 115.0 ESR versions. https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/releases/

All the other major web browsers already dropped support of the End of Life or EOL Windows 7, 8, 8.1 back in January/February 2023.
