Why does firefox continue to auto update when I have it set to let me decide when to do the update?

I have mozilla set to notify me when an update is ready but I just watched it update with no input from me.

example: [no input] Double click on the Firefox icon on the desktop and it says wait while we install the latest update. Then the little updater box with the progress bar opens showing update in progress. I DID NOT OK AN UPDATE!

How can I rely on software that does not follow settings? I am using Win 10 and the most current {NOW) firefox thanks to it updating without my permission. This is also why I now use Chrome as my default browser.

Keep Firefox from automatically updating

Already checked a bunch of help articles:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1003777 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1113663 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-older-version-of-firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/advanced-panel-settings-in-firefox#w_update-tab https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-mozilla-maintenance-service https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1003777

We need to use Firefox 33.0.1 for testing, but every time my tools use Firefox, the next time I find it has upgraded to 45.

In preferences I have set to never update, turned off search engine updates, and in the config page, have made sure the app.update.auto/enabled/silent are all false.

I am running on a Mac 10.11, I have renamed my original latest Firefox installation, and install the oldest in the default path for our tools to detect.

I see the maintenance service only exists for Windows computers, and I do not see any update folders in Firefox's application or Application Support directories.

This update will happen even when I don't restart my computer, or open Firefox manually in between test runs.

I am trying to upgrade to version 54. After processing the upgrade, I get an error message saying "the program can't start because mozglue.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

I have reinstalled the upgrade, renamed all the folder to OLD Mozilla Firefox (twice) and reinstalled the full download (twice) and it still gives me that error message. I do not have AVG on my computer. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. How do I get Firefox running again?

Thanks.

Literally, I have updates for Firefox completely turned off. But, suddenly, I have the little speakers appearing on my tabs. It doesn't seem like much, but this is just the latest in a series of these little updates that keep occurring.

How are any of these things, big or little, happening, when I've shut all updates off? It's ridiculous to know that my choice of whether or not I want any update is completely ignored. Since they are affecting something on MY COMPUTER - good, bad, neutral; your product, or not - I think I should have the final say in whether or not any update goes through, shouldn't I???

For about a week I have been getting a pop up every time I attempt to log onto Firefox. I always click 'no'. Yesterday I installed the latest version of Firefox (49.0) and today my pop up problem continues. I have run antivirus, and malware/spyware scans which have found no problem. I couldn't take a screen shot, but am including photos of the pop up I took with my camera. I need to know if this is from Firefox and I should click 'yes' and proceed (but what is the point? I've checked on Firefox's updater site and it says I have the latest version) Or is this NOT from Firefox? If it isn't, does anyone know how to stop the annoying pop ups? Please advise me.

I have spent some time reading the forums and this seems to be a problem many people have. Unfortunately I have not read a post where an actual solution was offered. I get no sound in Firefox version 57 or 58. Version 56 would work except for I am forced to uninstall the latest version every couple days and reinstall Firefox at version 56. Every time I do this, I disable automatic updates. Firefox still automatically updates. WTF man. I see on these forums that many people need a previous version of Firefox for whatever reason and we all get the updates that break our specific machine's compatability forced on us EVEN THO WE HAVE SELECTED TO DISABLE THE AUTOMATIC UPDATES!!! Is there a way to check disable automatic updates and have it actually disable updating automatically? Or should I look for another browser?

When I turned on my computer - firefox went into refresh. I didn't press anything - refresh just started all by itself. When it finished my desktop was gone. All my bookmarks, passwords, history - GONE. Like I'd downloaded a brand new copy of FF and had never used it before. Now how the hell do I get it all back??

Why firefox force updates itself without the consent of the user from version 42 to 62. It has been a long time between 42 and 62. Yet, firefox is so clumsy not to ask the user of updates. A user cannot keep track of his changes for 2.5 years. In this case firefox should have the courtesy to ask the customer to ins tall updates but it does not. Slyness. Including google.

My firefox which is the last truly secure version that I am aware of has started updating itself without changing its version number. It updates the add-on manager which shuts down my flash player requiring me to update to less secure versions of flash It is now allowing no-right click scripts to actually not allow me to pull up the right click menu on webpages or restrict the options displayed according to the no-right click script that is running. Why is my version of Firefox more secure? it is farther away from the OS it does not interact with explorer and it has its own Java control. Newer versions of Firefox are almost as bad or worse than Internet Explorer which is now being abandoned by Microsoft due to all of its security bugs that have mostly to do with how closely it interacts with the OS. I want a BROWSER not a window into my systems OS for the entire world to use to try and get into it. I want the BROWSER to only BROWSE the internet not download things automatically, not shutdown my plugins without asking, not allow poorly coded scripts to execute code on my machine (including no-right click scripts). I need to know how to STOP my firefox from updating the addon manager. How to keep it from allowing IE only code from running as it has now started allowing no-right click scripts to execute.

My version is 18.0.1

I will not go past this version, I want to STOP it from accepting ANY and ALL UPDATES including to the ADDON manager! in my advanced tab I have already checked the button to Never check for updates, that is not working!

I am little confused as to how does Firefox auto update works?

So, lately, Firefox had a bug in 38.x version - so they recommended to update to the latest version.

I had auto update turned on, so I thought it would auto update automatically. So, I click on Help > About Firefox, it was still 38.x

However, after I clicked on the About Firefox, it started downloading the updates, and prompted to restart the Firefox to install them.

I replicated it on a different machine (with auto updates turned on) and same result.

So, I am wondering if I have to trigger the download manually, how does really auto update works. Or am I missing something.

Note: New version was released about 2 days ago, so it wasn't right away I checked the download.

When I'm working or watching videos on YouTube, for example, I keep getting this damn popup. "A recommended security and stability update is available, but you do not have the system permissions required to install it. Please contact your system administrator, or try again from an account that has permission to install software on this computer. You can always get the latest version at; https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/". I'm using a user account, not the Administrator account. I'm fed up with these popups appearing in the middle of my screen when in the middle of work or trying to relax when I'm watching a video. Such popups are supposed to go to desktop not in my face when I'm in the middle of something. How do I stop it?

I am currently using ff 35.0.1 and got a notification that ff36.0 is available. Then, I tried to update, for that I opened the About Firefox dialogue box, it shows "Checking for updates" and then shows " Restart Firefox to Update", I never give the consent to update firefox, but ff shows restart to update and when I click "restart" nothing happens. So I restarted manually, nothing has changed and no updates were installed. I hope I can solve this issue without reinstalling ff, but I am ready to reinstall ff if necessary, what should I do now?

The question isn't even an exaggeration. I was browsing like normal, doing nothing that I don't always do anyway. There were no updates to any of my extensions or add ons (though I don't know when firefox last updated itself) I close the browser and go do something else. Come back and when I try to load anything in firefox it says it isn't connected to the internet.

Thing is... I'm typing from that same computer. My internet is completely fine. It's not blocked by any firewall or proxy - it never has been. Firefox decided it just doesn't want to work anymore and this is incredibly annoying. Though I prefer using SeaMonkey (Which works) I need Lightbeam for a site I often go to and that's only in firefox.

I've started it in safe mode as well as refreshed it.

Hello.

I am using Windows XP and Firefox V.43.0.4

Firefox was used to check for the latest version of Java. A newer version was found so Java was updated. The older version was deleted automatically without any issue and was also removed from Add/Remove Programs.

However, when I went back to into Java to check for the latest version, using Firefox, it states 'Unable To Begin UnInstall Process: Out Of Date Java Versions Were Not Uninstalled'-Is this a glitch since the older Java version was deleted during the new version update process?

I'm using a Mac (OSX 10.9.5 Mavericks), and just updated to the latest version of Firefox: 49.0.2. However, every time I start Firefox, I get a prompt telling me to restart to update to the latest version (which happens to be 49.0.2). Even after clicking the "Restart" button in the prompt, it just restarts then immediately tells me to restart again.

The odd thing is, I have another user account on this machine where that is not happening. That account is using 49.0.2 and does not receive the update prompt.

I have a MacBookPro with OS 10.13.6. In System Preferences/Notifications I have unchecked everything regarding Firefox banners/alerts, etc. But I still get a 2" x 3" pop-up in the upper right-hand corner of my screen, with "A new Firefox update is available." I don't want this reminder--I will check for update at my convenience. This is a real nuisance--how do I stop it?
