Answer: You can't. There are no FTP clients available for your new "updated" version. And no matter what you do. It never stops trying to update. Do you even care at all about your users Mozilla? You preach net neutrality and that we should have a right to choose and then you shove this down our throats. Well, if I update, then I can't work on your browser. You need to, as a company, take a chill pill and stop forcing downloads and updates. We have enough of that from Microsoft. Don't be assholes. I tried uploading images to prove what's going on but of course your website can't upload them.

I just updated to Firefox version 64 and noticed that you can no longer turn off update checks.

The only available options are "Automatically install updates" and "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

I administer a public access computer lab and don't want "A new version is available!" popups to appear while our patrons are using our computers.

Is there a way to turn off update checking in this version of Firefox? Perhaps in about:config?

i've already tried all of the fixes stated here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files and i've tried logging out my mozilla account and downloading, i've tried starting firefox in safe mode without any add-ons, i've tried pretty much everything i can think of. no matter what the download fails and a 0kb file is created instead. when i try to download a webpage i get a 0kb html file and a folder containing all the contents of the html file, also i can download images perfectly fine even though it says they fail. i've tried downloading multiple types of files and it's not just webpages, .zip files fail, .exe files fail, everything that isn't a photo fails. the only other thing i can think of is .pdf files do a similar thing to html files, where a 0kb .pdf is created and a .pdf.part file is created the size of the actual pdf. also i've tried downloading using other browsers (excluding chrome, because it crashes my pc on startup) and they've worked perfectly fine, firefox and firefox nightly are the only programs having this issue.

So i noticed that Firefox upgraded me to Quantum. I had an open mind but upon a quick perusal i realized it was simply unacceptable. Alot of the major add ons that made Firefox what it was were not available. As far as I was concerned I wasnt using Firefox but some foreign browser. The main issue for me was particularly the session manager. Im a browser hoarder and like to keep track of articles and sites and go back to them at later dates.. I was in horror that my session were all gone so I attempted to download to ESR 52 that was no use either as it doesnt support session manager. I downloaded the Firefox 56 and made a new profile. I copied everthing from old profile to new but kept two separate profiles. The session were all there but the history didnt transfer for some reason. So i deleted the new profile all together and am back to old profile but once again history isnt there. What am i doing wrong? What happened here?

I am starting to hate Firefox for this. I am not a tech expert and all that api crap means nothing to me. If you are gonna upgrade you cant change my entire life. Not seeing my sessions and history is just short of a hard drive being wiped clean. Its like they are selling prime rib to a vegan. I just need the Firefox i know and love. Make it faster make it cleaner but dont change it in its entirety please.

Anyone who can help with the question i would really appreciate it...

In the admin account and all user accoutns, I had Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

I created a new account on this computer. The VERY FIRST THING I did was go to Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

Guess what. It updated. It updated for all accounts.

I've easily lost four work days of time in the first 8 months of 2019 because of FIrefox updates. I need a way to stop updates. ALL updates. FOREVER. ALL UPDATES UNCONDITIONALLY BLOCKED. No leakage. I do not want them with a goat. I do not want them on a boat. I do not want them here or there. I do not want them anywhere. Is there any remaining ambiguity?

The ways described above don't cut it. So let's think unconventionally. Is there a file I can set the protections on, so Firefox's update balks and gives up? Can I create a file that has a name that Firefox update expects, and give that file some content or property so that Firefox update fails?

Can anyone point me to the firefox version 28 exe file fore windows?

I can find this link " https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ " but it lists a number for version 28s (28.0, .0b1/2/3.../9) and the sub-directories there are a mess of stuff that I have no idea where to go and what to get.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I updated to 29 and the GUI change is too much for me, so I installed a really old version of ff and am looking to update back to 28 until I feel like I want to adjust to 29.

I was just auto-upgraded to Firefox 20.0, and what had been an orderly, cascading context menu is now a flat, broken menu that's so big it scrolls off the top and bottom of my screen. The cascading submenus have been crammed into the top layer, and many of those options are now broken. Furthermore, options/menus that had been, well, context-sensitive (that is, they only appeared in certain circumstances) are now always-on. For instance, right-clicking on a link gives me the link-related options I'd expect, but it also gives me irrelevant media-control (Play, Pause, etc.) and image-related (View, Reload, Copy location) options.

I am using Firefox 50.0 on OSX El Capitan. I was experiencing the same issue on 49, so I upgraded to 50 beta to see if it would help, but it does not. Every time that I start Firefox, I get a notification to update to the latest version, even though I am on the latest version. If I select "Restart Firefox" from the notification, Firefox restarts and shows the notification again. When I choose "Restart Later" I can browse normally.

I was trying to get help on this thread started by someone else (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1141443), but no solution was found.

I do have a clue that may help. I use 2 user accounts on OSX, one for work and one for home. I'll refer to these as accounts A and B. OSX account B was the first to show the problem, running Firefox 49. I followed instructions here (http://osxdaily.com/2014/07/31/manual-complete-app-removal-mac-os-x-terminal/) to use mdfind to remove firefox files, but that did not seem to help. Finally, with account B, I upgraded to Firefox 50 and stopped getting the notifications. However, now I get the notification in account A. In account A, Firefox reports as version 50.0, but still asks to update. I imagine that there is something OSX account specific causing problems, but I don't know what that might be. Any help is appreciated.
