I just updated to Firefox version 64 and noticed that you can no longer turn off update checks.

The only available options are "Automatically install updates" and "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

I administer a public access computer lab and don't want "A new version is available!" popups to appear while our patrons are using our computers.

Is there a way to turn off update checking in this version of Firefox? Perhaps in about:config?

locking this thread as support is being rendered in the original thread - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1249850


I've already asked the question and gave my email address but now didn't see how to get to the forum. I started out having a problem hearing sound on facebook and youtube videos. Checked sound on pc - fine. Had a pc expert uninstall and reinstall firefox and the sound worked last night. This morning the sound on those videos is gone so I uninstalled and installed firefox again and now it says that facebook and youtube don't have safe connections!!!!! I didn't appreciate being offered the reimage app and then finding out it would cost me something after it went through my pc. I am being as nice as my frustration allows.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

Hello,

Starting Firefox and going to https://www.israelweather.co.il/week.asp - I get the "Insecure Connection" page. If, however, I go to a different site and then go to https://www.israelweather.co.il/week.asp - Firefox displays the page.

Any explanation or a way to solve the issue?

Thank you.

I am trying to connect AWS public IP in firefox web page, i am getting this error.

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at x.xx.xxx.xxx.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web

How can I open Firefox and get my multiple email accounts to open in their respective multi-account containers (I love the containers btw).
