My Firefox keeps updating automatically to a new version. I use both a Mac and PC and use iCloud for my bookmarks. The new version of Firefox doesn't work with the iCloud addon. I keep installing the older version and syncing, but within 30 minutes my Firefox is updated and no longer works with the iCloud addon. How do i stop Firefox from automatically updating?

This is an immediate concern of mine. I can not use Firefox if I can not share between the Mac and PC.

Please advise.
