I am well aware that the Firefox version on the dozen or so PCs here are out of date. Problem is, Firefox updates regularly break things, or the UI changes. We have been seeing "Your Firefox is critically out of date" prompts every time we use Firefox.
One person clicked on the update and it broke several things such as bookmarks, a online game and a couple of addons. Fortunately I take backup images of PCs every night so we were able to restore the system.
I only have one test PC here. I am already working on several major projects and just don't have time to test, resolve issues and update Firefox at this time.
In the mean time, is there a way to stop this incessant nag that our browsers are critically out of date.
I'd rather not get into an argument about why the update is required, or how or why it breaks things. They are what they are. All I want to do is stop the nag.

When I had switched from Firefox to Internet Explorer last year, Explorer automatically captured my bookmarks, organized as I had them in Firefox, and created my Favorites list. All folders were there, etc.
I have just reinstalled the latest version of Firefox. However, it only showed the bookmarks I had when I had uninstalled it last year. When I imported my current favorites from Explorer, they did not incorporate into the old list of bookmarks on Firefox. Instead, there was a separate folder with all of the Explorer bookmarks. Therefore, there is now a ton of duplication. This will prove stupidly cumbersome to have to go back and forth between them, and as I add new bookmarks to the Firefox list.
Why doesn't Firefox automatically capture the Explorer favorites and merge them into the old Firefox list, deleting duplications? If this is not possible, could I delete the bookmark library in Firefox, and then have it import the favorites list from Explorer? That is the list/library I want now---not the old list on Firefox.
Years ago, when I had switched from Explorer to Firefox the first time, Firefox automatically captured my bookmarks from Explorer. Why not now?
