How many are moving to a different browser thanks to Firefox/Waterfox incessant dialog prompting to 'update now'? There used to be an option to turn this off. No longer. Weekly or bi-weekly updates are rarely of any consequence anyway, so why must we endure prompt after prompt after prompt. Not everyone can stop what they're in the midst of to update on command. Speaking of incessant, I suggest Mozilla put more work into stopping incessant crashes. Now that would be an accomplishment. Rarely does an hour pass without my browser crashing. Say what you may about old Internet Explorer; at least it didn't crash all the time.

I stopped updating at v54. I did not like where Quantum was going. So far, no real issues.


How do you completely turn off update checks in Firefox v64? You can use a policies.json file to disable updates for all users. https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md or https://winaero.com/blog/disable-updates-firefox-63-above/

You can use a policies.json file in the distribution folder in the Firefox installation folder instead as also listed in the article, so no need to use GPO keys in the Windows Registry. • https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-policiesjson
