How do I disable the plugin check at Firefox start up? All of my plugins are up to date and I do not have Java installed on my system (thus, do not have the Java plugin).
I'm running FF 12 and have already set plugins.update.notifyUser to False.
You are actually running Firefox 6.0.1. Please update to Firefox 18. Update Firefox to the latest version
Then, your Flash is out of date, you are running Flash 11.2 when the latest version is 11.5. Please update that.
The reply remains the same, please update to Firefox 18, and Reset Firefox. (and you should update that ancient work machine)
Man, I hate upgrading my browsers so often. Especially since my browsing habits are incredibly tame. Oh well, I'll upgrade to 18 and report the results.
And, I actually wish I could update my work machine but that's not possible.
If you actually upgrade to Firefox 18, turn on automatic updates, Firefox will check for and install updates without you even seeing a thing, totally silent and painless.
And talk to your work IT department, as having such an old version of Firefox on that machine is leaving your whole company network vulnerable to attack.
I'm one of those curmudgeons that doesn't like software updating itself in the back ground. I prefer to choose when updates happen.
Regardless, upgrading to 18 worked. Thanks.
Note that by not letting Firefox update in the background you are increasing the chances you'll be running a vulnerable version of Firefox if there is a zero-day. Just look at the vulnerabilities that have been fixed in recent versions https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabili
@Tylerdowner, you're not my mother. You posted 5 times and never answered the question. That's not helpful. ANSWER THE QUESTION. Then if you want to warn me about the risks I'm running, that's ok. But answer the question first.
