How do I stop Firefox from constantly popping up that there is a new version?
The last time I updated Firefox it forgot my open tabs and browsing history. I never want to update Firefox again so how do I disable this annoying popup about a new version? If I cannot eliminate this I will change to another browser.

You should use an up-to-date browser because, unfortunately, security flaws keep getting discovered in older versions.
Just in case your Firefox updates, I suggest making a backup now:
You can copy certain files with Firefox closed from another profile folder to backup your personal data. Note that best is to avoid restoring a full profile folder.
You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).
- Help -> More Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Folder/Directory:
Windows: Open Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
- bookmarks and history: places.sqlite
- favicons: favicons.sqlite
- bookmark backups: compressed .jsonlz4 JSON backups in the bookmarkbackups folder
- cookies.sqlite for the Cookies
- formhistory.sqlite for saved autocomplete Form Data
- logins.json (encrypted logins) and key4.db (decryption key and primary password) for logins saved in the Password Manager
- cert9.db for certificates stored in the Certificate Manager
- persdict.dat for words added to the spell checker dictionary
- permissions.sqlite for Permissions and possibly content-prefs.sqlite for other website specific data (Site Preferences)
- sessionstore.jsonlz4 for open tabs and pinned tabs (see also the sessionstore-backups folder)
Thanks for the link to the article. "The refresh feature removes add-ons normally stored inside the Firefox profile folder " It deletes a lot more than that. Just look at the list at the bottom of the article. Why would Firefox be so self-destructive during a refresh? It's time for a different browser that doesn't delete almost everything when you upgrade. Thanks for your response.
No one is suggesting that you use the Refresh/tune-up feature.
Every day, tens of millions of Firefox updates go exactly as planned with zero data loss or settings loss. But we know that even a 0.001% failure rate affects a lot of users and that is why we suggested you make a backup if you cannot accept any risk of data loss.
