I don't want any upgrade reminders. Anytime. Never. When I decide to upgrade sometime in the future, I'll use manual upgrade. How can I do that? Thanks in advance.

          Log on to an administrator account or the account used to install Firefox.
        * 2
          Open a Firefox browser window.
        * 3
          Locate the browser's menu. Select "Tools" and "Options" and wait for the pop-up window to appear. Choose "Advanced" and "Update."
        * 4
          Find the portion of the "Update" section that reads "Automatically Check for Updates to..." and uncheck "Firefox." You also have the choice of deselecting "Installed Add-ons" and "Search Engines." If you decide to uncheck the other two, Add-ons and Search Engines will not be checked for updates, either.
        * 5
          Verify that the "When Updates to Firefox are Found..." section grays. A gray section means that the section is no longer relevant and that updates will no longer be checked.
        * 6
          Click "OK" and enjoy an update-free Firefox web-browsing experience.
        * 7
          Select "Help" and "Check for Updates" in Firefox's menu or visit Firefox's official website regularly to check for new updates. Firefox should always be updated to the newest build so that security features are installed and you and your personal information remain protected while on the Internet.

Hope this helps!

You should probably never open the Help > About window as that can trigger a search for updates...

Hello Curtis, Thank you for this solution. (I think I switched this off before.) Firefox continued nagging but far less than before. It is probably "by design" by the often strange IT "logic". Unfortunately one can't make all the tools he needs to not be "smart screwdrivers", so we have to live with programers' "fancy ideas" and their "clever implementations". ivo.kisselov
