Firefox cannot keep track of the fact that it's already up to date

Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6

Here's the routine with FF on this machine: If FF 68.0.2 is running, after a while I will try to open a new tab and be told "Sorry we need to do one small thing to keep going, FF has been updated in the background, Restart FF" I do so. It opens up a new, clean profile in a new window (About FF now says 68.0.1 in this version of FF, and it downloads 68.0.2 and prompts to Restart FF (again)). At which point it runs "a new helper tool" and re-updates FF to 68.0.2. I then have to mess with about:profiles to go back to my profile. Things then run routinely for a few hours or a day, before the whole routine starts over again.

Alternately, if FF 68.0.2 is not running, if I open it (after opening and closing it several times without issue), I will get a message that "You've launched an older version of FF, Create New Profile or Quit". Create New Profile leads me through the routine above.

Versions of the above routine have happened not just between 68.0.2 and 68.0.1, but also between earlier version updates. That is, this has been going on for months. It does seem in the last couple of weeks that the interval of time has shortened and I'm having to do this routine everyday or even multiple times a day. I have no problems like this with FF on any other machine.

I've tried:

Trashing FF and re-dl'ing from Mozilla. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Cache/Mozilla and Firefox folders. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles (and re-signing in to retrieve my existing bookmarks etc and re-setting up View and other Preferences). No dice.

If anyone has any ideas, I'll be grateful, thanks in advance.

Firefox обновился в фоновом режиме и требует перезапуска. Хотя в настройках выбрано "Проверять наличие обновлений, но позволять вам решать, устанавливать ли их"

Браузер обновился сам, без предупреждения, проигнорировав мои настройки, и не позволяет продолжить работу без перезапуска. О найденном обновлении он сообщил относительно давно. Я его игнорировал, кажется, больше недели, потому что не хотел перезагружать несколько сотен вкладок. Компьютер всё это время был включен, а браузер оставался открыт. Вопроса, собственно, три: 1. Это баг или фича? 2. Если это фича, то как её отключить, чтобы такое не повторилось в будущем? 3. Можно ли что-то сделать сейчас, чтобы продолжить работу, не перезапуская браузер?

ОС - Linux mint. Firefox установлен НЕ из репозитория, а как отдельный deb пакет, скачанный с официального сайта Мозиллы. Версия 68.0.2 (64-битный).

Hi all. Seems like after updates, my computer slows down. It has become so recognizable, I know when the registry errors appear, as my computer performance falls off. I must use Reginout Registry cleaner, and CC Cleaner to restore performance. Along with any FireFox updates, my bookmarks have all been deleted many times over. I no longer attempt to re-install, as they continually get deleted, and so simple fix is available to me that I can understand. Thank you.

I'm running Firefox 65.0.2 on Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 LTS.

I keep getting this very annoying popup telling me to update Firefox. I tried to download the package and install it but I'm having difficulty being somewhat new to Linux. I check the support pages and I find this:

"Note: If you use your Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox, you will need to wait for an updated package to be released to its package repository. This article only applies if you installed Firefox manually (without using your distribution's package manager)." (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release)

So, is there a way to stop the annoying popups while I wait for a release in the appropriate Ubuntu repository?

We have deployed ESR version 60.2 (most current release). We have the config to force an update as it is available and silently install the updates suppressing any notifications. However, what most of our users are seeing is a constant prompt (as often as once a minute) to 'Download a fresh copy of Firefox'. If you follow the suggested link, it takes you to download Firefox Quantum. This feels like a bug. We do not want this version of the browser so it is unclear why it continually is taking users to this link. Its very difficult to ignore because it takes up the corner of the screen until dismissed.
