How can I permanently force firefox's automatic updates to be turned off? Which guy modified the original design for the new version of Firefox bookmarks? Is there something wrong with that man's brain? Is the spacing of the new bookmark item too large to read? It's very uncomfortable.

Yes you can turn off the automatic updates by clicking the menu on the top right corner and selecting 'Settings'. From there in the default general section, you scroll down until you see 'Firefox Updates' and you can choose the option for Firefox to check for updates but lets you choose when to install. (Basically not automatic updates)

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

Note that you are running a Beta or Developer Edition version and these branches update twice a week. If you do not want to update that often then switch to the release update channel.
