Firefox communication ceases
FireFox Developer 99.0b8 (64-bit) on the "aurora update channel" on Windows 10 PC (version 1803, build 17134.2208)
I notice whenever an update is pending (the green dot appears in the icon for the "Open Application Menu"), FF becomes unresponsive in a way. When it happens: It does not totally freeze. I can select/switch between existing tabs & scroll thru their pages. I can close tabs. I can open a new empty tab. But I can't load or refresh any pages. The only fix is to do the update, and re-launch.
Since the developer edition gets updated frequently, it is a pain.
I like the Developer Tools! But... How can I scale back the FF "update frequency", or "change the channel", so updates are, like monthly at most?

Developer Edition is a beta and you can expect an average of 2 updates per week.
To control the timing of the installation, switch your preference on the Settings page:
Note that the only way to switch the update channel is to install that other version.
Thanks Jefferson and cor-el. (sorry, JS, meant to click on thumbs up not down) I took JS's advice - lets see what happens...
I also notice the issue in Nightly. The browser does have issues when an update is pending with the green dot. Not a big deal, just restart and all is well. Let me go see if I can get a pic showing the dot.
