Hello Don.

You can access the add-on manager by going into Tools > Add-ons. It's the Extensions tab you want, most likely, since plugins and themes tend not to make popups appear.

If you want to disable the automatic update of add-ons, simply go into Tools > Options > Advanced > Updates and untick "Add-ons".
