How to BLOCK auto-updates?? BACK TO THE FUTURE - haven't had this problem for years - suddenly I'm -forced- to update and the side-effects are a disaster!

Kuphostiwe

Was running successfully with 60.0 - INCLUDING Noscript I believe. 61 got force-fed (not "offered") to me and I'm screwed.

This PC was set for "check for updates but let you choose to install them." (The setting ANY RATIONAL ENGLISH-SPEAKING USER WOULD TAKE AT FACE VALUE.)

NOT ONLY did it download the update, it triggered a WINDOWS CRASH.

Event Viewer shows a boatload of:

"Circular Kernel Context Logger" failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000035

(which sounds dimly familiar from years ago... obviously not a Mozilla issue per se.

On my laptop, Mozilla Maintenance Service is set to Manual start and it was NOT running - which would seem like rational settings.

But 62.0.2 was STILL pushed to me this morning. (From something else on the network, I imagine. NOT GOOD.)

Do we need to create a DISTINCT, CLIENT-side service that forcibly BLOCKS Mozilla updates??

Let's see how many other users get bitten by this today.

Why haven't you changed it to 'Not Update'?

MOZILLA - THIS IS NOW OFFICIALLY A BUG - PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK AS DOCUMENTED.

Therefore, Firefox itself is now "Not Recommended."

62.0.2 CRASHED on me this morning. Worst of all worlds: FORCE-FEED a new release to customers ... a 62.0.2 release that CRASHES - VERY SOON - (when installed on top of a stable 62.0).

I ask again: Where is Quality Control??

I tried McCoy's advice - using the technipages "From Firefox Menus" he suggested - but it **arrived too late**. I can hope this was my "once" ... but the PRODUCT should not PERMIT serious failures like this. THAT is a BUG.

I have (ahem) "reassigned" developers of commercial software who did not adequately test products before release. Over the past decade, I've been spoiled enough by Mozilla quality to trust it.

Obviously, that ends today... **IF** I can manage to BLOCK Mozilla from force-feeding me buggy releases! (And the folks in my network now know to avoid this release, if it's not already too late.)

I'm locking this thread. You should be using the latest version of Firefox, which at time of writing is 62.0.2, with updates enabled.

If you have a crash in Firefox, please open a new thread with the crash ID's
