I'm currently in my vacation home and I don't have home internet here. I'm connecting through my mobile phone using limited mobile data. and I selected not to download updates because it keeps updating itself like twice in a week and every MB counts in limited data plans especially if it's just 4 GB total for each month.

But now every time I open the firefox it showing download latest update popup like an annoying virus on the top right corner where 3 horizontal lines are located.

I checked the internet and previously this was an option in it's settings. Then this option removed and only hidden behind the about:config . and now it's completely removed from about:config either.

The only reason I switched from chrome to firefox was because google became an absolute dictator lately and all it's changes was to limit down my accessibility. I switched to firefox becuse it doesn't backstab it's users and they give the choice to it's users rather than dictating it like dictators. So did I make a mistake switching to firefox? Is firefox becoming just like chrome now? or is there (hoping so much) and option given us to turn off the notifications as well?

Note that minor updates are quite small (few MB, so less than a small video) and if you wait too long then you only get a full update that is a lot larger, so this is hardly worth the trouble.

Well the problem is if I keep updating for a long period of time as well, eventually I will get the full update too. It's not like I'm away from home for a month or two. I might be stuck in here for a whole year. So seriously, updating is just not an option I can afford :/

So set up the policy. But please remember to update every six months. Longer time span makes you vulnerable to a growing number of issues.

How can I do that? There is no option in about:config to turn off the update notification. It's coming up every time I open firefox. I'm not a fan using old versions, but I just don't have the money to afford more mobile data then I have and I'm very poor.

Well great, I accidentally updated while trying it. I hope this solves the problem though and I will see it when the next update comes. Thank you...

I will mark this as solved as I don't know when the next update might be.
