Hi Firefox Team

I am very happy to use this browser as it serves all my needs perfectly! So thanks you for that.

The issue I have is about the updates. Whenever Firefox updates, I lose the sites saved on it. I have no issues with that.

However, can you give me the option to select a time and date for it?

That way I can, 1) Select a time when I am not working on Firefox. 2) Coordinate with other updates like Windows and McAfee.

This will ensure that I am prepared for the sites to disappear just once, instead of every time there's an update.

Thanks, Kajal

What do you mean by 'lose the sites saved on it?' Do you mean your bookmarks?

What about the rest of your profile? Settings, bookmarks, history, passwords . . . .

Type about:profiles<enter> in the address bar. How many profiles are listed? How many should be there? Also, open the profile folder in your file explorer.

Hi, yes, it is the bookmarks that disappear. I have to then add them again from the 'Logins and Passwords' tab. As I use up to 12 to 15 apps everyday, it gets difficult to do this every time. So all I want is that I get to set up a day and time for Firefox updates. That way I can sync them with the other system updates and will have to do this only once a month instead of every time an update is done. At present, I have synced updates from Windows, MS & McAfee. But I don't see that option on FF.

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
