Upgrade nagging pain

已張貼

I've fiddled all the about:config upgrade settings I can find, still my firefox nags every day to up upgrade. Unless I can stop the nag I will change browser. I *never* want to upgrade. Reason: macx have a bizare DNS and at the slightest whim MyDNS is replaced with TheirDNS Every release of firefox seems to 'enhance' using the URL bar to search. Everytime mac's DNS goes haywire I go to eg sandypit.home and get a Google search for 'sandypit.home'.

Why on earth URL bar is used to search on a desktop machine is bizare. I find no about:config setting that says "search with url bar TRUE/FALSE"

Firstly, it's never recommended to run old versions of Firefox because it can leave you vulnerable to security and privacy issues that have been patched in newer versions of Firefox.

However, if you have your heart set on keeping your older version of Firefox and disabling updates, you can do so by configuring a policies.json file on Firefox. This is intended primarily for enterprise environments, but it works for the regular version of Firefox as well.

Your policies.json file should contain the following code:

{

 "policies": {
   "DisableAppUpdate": true
 }

}

However, I'd recommend simply disabling Google searching from the Firefox address bar because this sounds more like it would fix your issue. To do so, just do the following:

  1. Type about:config in your Firefox address bar
  2. Bypass the security warning
  3. Find keyword.enabled
  4. Double click it to change the value to false

Then you can customize your Firefox toolbar to add the search bar if you wish.

Hope this helps.

Except that about:config entries are poorly documented and I did search but would not guess keyword.enabled. Thanks lots.

Yeah. Unfortunately, because there are so many entries, there's not really any spectacular or complete documentation of these entries at this time. Sorry.

But glad that I was able to provide you with the preference that you were looking for.
