how do i disable firefox updates?

Every time I turn off automatic updates I get a reminder anyway as soon as I restart firefox. the option to disable updates DOES NOT WORK. I also have to type a new question everytime cause there is no way to check what I've already asked and chat support has been down for DAYS. WTF? This is your MAIN product.

how do you have NO/ZERO support options? just go around the net and ask people and hope that someone answers?

"Every time I turn off automatic updates I get a reminder anyway as soon as I restart firefox. the option to disable updates DOES NOT WORK."

  1. You are an update behind in the 3.6.x version of Firefox. The current version is 3.6.18, you have version 3.6.17
  2. To turn off automatic updates (not wise, but here goes):

You need to update the following. The Plugin version(s) shown below was/were submitted with your question and is/are out of date.

  • Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 11.5
  • Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 8.3.0 (very, very old)
  1. Check your plugin versions on either of the following links':
  2. Update Shockwave for Director
    • NOTE: this is not the same as Shockwave Flash; this installs the Shockwave Player.
    • Use Firefox to download and SAVE the installer to your hard drive from the link in the article below (Desktop is a good place so you can find it).
    • When the download is complete, exit Firefox (File > Exit)
    • locate and double-click in the installer you just downloaded, let the install complete.
    • Restart Firefox and check your plugins again.
    • Download link and more information: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Using+the+Shockwave+plugin+with+Firefox
  3. Update Adobe Reader (PDF plugin):
    • From within your existing Adobe Reader (if you have it already installed):
      • Open the Adobe Reader program from your Programs list
      • Click Help > Check for Updates
      • Follow the prompts for updating
      • If this method works for you, skip the "Download complete installer" section below and proceed to "After the installation" below
    • Download complete installer (if you do NOT have Adobe Reader installed):
    • After the installation, start Firefox and check your version again.

You are welcome.

What worked for you? Did you update to a more current version? Or did you turn off automatic updates?

So that other users can find solutions to previously asked Firefox support questions, please take a couple of minutes to return to the forum, sign in and click "Solved" next to my F I R S T answer above. Thanks.
