Firefox older version
How can I prevent Firefox requesting us to update. We have had good luck running version 78.15.0 ers with our software for printing name tags . Errors occur with more recent to latest versions. I have had no luck with information found on internet on preventing update messages. Thank you for your help.
Step one: How do you completely turn off update checks in Firefox v64? You can use a policies.json file to disable updates for all users. https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md or https://winaero.com/blog/disable-updates-firefox-63-above/
You can use a policies.json file in the distribution folder in the Firefox installation folder instead as also listed in the article, so no need to use GPO keys in the Windows Registry. • https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-policiesjson ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
You can use the ManualAppUpdateOnly policy in Firefox 87+ to enable only manual updates e.g. via "Help -> About Firefox".
Note that it is important to stay up to date and install the latest security patches.
