Automatical update destroys my work
Firefox updates automatically at random points in time and destroys all the work as I cannot open any new tab(every new tab says something about restarting Firefox). This causes severe problems as some people may use Firefox for work and it may be quite a f__k up when you're discussing something with your client and out of a sudden you need to tell them that all you've been building up for the last 20minutes needs to be done again and you're short of time because the meeting ends in, let's say, 10 minutes.
That means Firefox is not useful for professional use like business, science(reported by someone else https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1314749 ) and probably other fields.
How about telling the user that Firefox is going to update when restarted but not forcing the user to restart it NOW and to destroy user's work at random points in time?
Besides the above Firefox dosen't restore the tabs when forcefully quits to do the update which not only makes me lose the content of a form that was being filled but also varius tabs that were opened at that time.
I'm aware that I can disable automatic updates by setting one of the parameters to false in about:config but I'm not sure whether I'll be informed about updates in this case and what's more this doesn't make Firefox suitable for a regular user that may not have this knowledge. Chrome is more friendly to regular users in this case.
The issue happend: when upgrading to Firefox 98.0.2 (64bit) and a few earlier versions in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Hi. I rely on an update notifier to keep me informed of available software updates. I only update from a distro repository so I don't allow automatic updates.

On right right, in your Questions Details > More System details it appears you have a Ubuntu supplied version of Firefox Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:98.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/98.0 and not Firefox from www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/
Mozilla does not provide internal Firefox updates to third-party builds or packages, only to their own official builds.
