Is there a way to opt out of the latest ESR update?

I'm currently using Firefox 78.15.0esr 64-bit and there's supposed to be an update to 90-something, but I don't want to upgrade because the reason why I downgraded to this version was a major problem I had with the latest Firefox--that problem being that it would go in and out of Full Screen mode by itself regardless of whether I was watching a Youtube video or not, even if I never pressed F11. It would just jump in and out of fullscreen on its own, sometimes just showing a black screen and forcing me to restart the computer entirely because when it holds on the black screen, my monitor would just turn off.

So, is there a way to opt out of this update if the upgraded ESR is just going to do the same thing as regular Firefox?

Step one: 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 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You can use the ManualAppUpdateOnly policy in Firefox 87+ to enable only manual updates e.g. via "Help -> About Firefox".

Note that it is important to stay up to date and install the latest security patches.
