Isn't it unethical to auto-update when user has checked off DON'T UPDATE?
I just downloaded 47.0.1 and checked the box NOT TO UPDATE. Five minutes later a Firefox update message pops up reading: "Restart Firefox to update." In the box below is a sentence saying that Mozilla aims to keep the web "ACCESSIBLE TO ALL. Your coding has shut me out, unable to use Firefox with my system. This is a reoccurring issue facing many users. Why has Mozilla failed to change the coding despite all the complaints? At this point aren't we dealing with an ethical issue?

Firefox support has ended for Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8:
