I get it Mozilla, you want us to update Firefox. But it's my computer and I want to choose when to do it. Stop with the multiple notifications and bring back the ability to turn them off.

Anyone know of a hack that will turn these off? Other threads on the subject have been turned off, with no real solution. Thank you.

It is not safe to run an out of date version of Firefox. Especially in recent weeks, as Firefox 67.0.3 and 67.0.4 fixed critical security issues in the browser.

Please update to 67.0.4 ASAP, or wait until tomorrow to update to 68.

If you update the notification will go away :)

Normally, when you use the "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" option, the notification of a new version should appear no more often than once every 12 hours. Are you seeing it more frequently? Do you tend to run Firefox continuously or start/exit it often?

It used to only appear once a day, but the last few days it's appearing every time I start Firefox. I don't keep it running continuously. Very annoying. I'll update eventually but don't like the constant popups.

Firefox 66 came out in March, so you haven't updated since then. Just tomorrow, when Firefox 68 comes out, update and restart Firefox. It's a quick and painless process

And once I do update, how do I turn off future notifications, got that answer to my ACTUAL question? All I want is what Firefox used to have, a way to turn those off.

Firefox releases major updates every 6-8 weeks, and minor updates as needed. If you restart Firefox from time to time you'll never see those update notifications

I have the same issue with mozilla. that pop-up about an update being available is annoying. I will update when I want to. RIght now I will not update mozilla because it will break an externsion I use. Personal Persona. Firefox Color is a joke. that is not in any way a replacement for Personal Persona.

When Mozilla stops with the heavy handed in your face attitude about how I am suppose to run and modify the cosmetic look of mozilla I will consider updating until then I stay on the version which works the way I want it to work.

Just tell us how to disable that annoying pop-up.

Hello SMAdler and artisticforge,

To stop update notifications - please try this :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar app.update

Look for the preference :

app.update.doorhanger

and set its value to false

Then close and restart Firefox.

I did the about:config steps and now I get an even more annoying pop-up. I have attached the screenshot of the annoying pop-up.

Why is it even checking for permissions to install any updates?

Okay i read the bug report and read the support postings. I have created the policies.json file in /usr/lib/firefox/distribution as described in the referenced postings

I have restarted mozilla and I have a bad feeling that the annoying pop-ups will return.

I am ready to put mozilla/firefox in the bin and just use elinks or links2. I can always use Safari on MacOSX if need be. Safari on the iPad or iPhone.
