How do I disable automatic updating? I am about to switch to another browser because of the frequency with which I am delayed by an automatic update without the option to put it off to another time.

I have been using Firefox and its ancestors since the beginning. I am at the end of my rope with it. When I click a link or open the browser it is because that is what I seek to have happen. Unless there is a way to turn off automatic updating, I am going to pack it in and find another platform. I cannot see what would be lost if Firefox would do its updating on the way out, when my attention has moved on, and it is not taking up my time. Is there a solution to this with Firefox?
