Why does firefox update itself even when i tell it not to? Everytime it updates itself it messes up and crashes, make it stop. I like firefox but if I keep having to unistall and reinstall it ever month to every other month I am going to be done with it

Fire Fox updates itself even after I tell it not to. The new version it updates to crashes, adobe flash player doesn't work on it and it takes forever to load when it does work. I have used fire fox for years now but if this keeps up I will find something else to use.

This happened

A few times a week

== When you came out with fire fox 6.6 or whatever

I also have this problem of Firefox updating by itself even when I turn off auto-update.

For whatever reason, there are situations where you do not want to update or download a large file, because you're working offline, have a slow connection, or have a very low download allowance etc. Usually the update doesn't work and cause Firefox to crash. After that it cannot be started again. This is with Firefox Portable but I think I've had this problem the normal Firefox. With the portable version I can just back up a single folder but it is still time wasting and annoying.

I've noticed that when I start Firefox with auto-update turned off, it changes the options to auto-update, it also does this periodically. So every time I start Firefox I have to turn off auto-update, and I have to do this from to time because Firefox will by itself turn back on the auto-update.
