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

Since I was having the same issue, I just tested and can confirm that applying enterprise policies works for blocking updates.

If using Windows, you can do the following:

  1. run regedit.exe
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\
  3. Right click Policies > New > Key - Enter Mozilla as name
  4. Right click Mozilla > New > Key - Enter Firefox as name
  5. Right click Firefox > New > DWORD (32-bit) Value - Enter DisableAppUpdate as name
  6. Double click DisableAppUpdate, enter 1 as value
  7. Restart Firefox

By itself, this is enough to disable updates completely.

Alternatively, you can create a policies.json file with the following content:

{

 "policies": {
   "DisableAppUpdate": true
 }

} Please check the top part of https://github.com/mozilla/policy-tem.../README.md to see where to place that file depending on your OS. You can check about:policies or about:preferences to see that updates are disabled at this point.
