Firefox updates even though updates are disabled

I am running Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon. When installed through the Mint Software Manager, Firefox comes with the DisableAppUpdates policy enabled, which is meant to disable automatic updates. This suits me just fine, as I prefer to update Firefox manually as new versions are released rather than have them pushed on me. However, I've found that Firefox does update automatically. In fact, because of the policy, I am unable to prevent it from updating automatically. As you can see in the included screenshots, I am running the most recent version of Firefox (released today), despite updates being ostensibly disabled. I cannot find a way to disable the policy or prevent the automatic updates.

Why is this happening, and how can I stop it?

It keeps asking me to UPDATE and I keep clicking DISMISS. I want to turn off update checking. I keep asking for this feature to be restored, and no one is listening. It seems to me that what we want as users no longer matters anymore. I DO NOT WANT Firefox TO CHECK FOR UPDATES. I don't like being nagged.

Firefox continues to indicate I am using Windows 8. I have NEVER used Windows 8 in my liftetime. I use Windows 10 and after locating the program compatibility location to change to Windows 10, Windows 10 isn't an option. I changed my OS to 10 in your box below. Why? I don't understand this.

1. I am getting the following error while login into one of the website using Firefox:

     We're sorry, an error occurred while accessing this site. Please try again later.
 I can login using Edge browser. It is happening in last couple of days.

2. I am getting the 'Something went wrong, please try again' error while trying to order something with PayPal payment.

       The screen blinks for a moment and than I get the error message. 
   Last time it happened when ordering something from Staples.com
   It was ok when used Edge browser.

Firefox version 109.0 (64 bit) I have 2 Laptops, A and B. Laptop A: about 2 years ago Adobe and Flash quit the business, Firefox was doing ok then after an Firefox update videos would not play, I have to use chrome to this day, Had Windows 8 then updated to 10, no difference Laptop B: Everything was good until a couple of weeks ago January ? 10-20?? 2023. Just after an Firefox update my Facebook would not fully load, I can only see a couple of post followed by 3 post that only show a outlined box with an error occurred and if I click on it or anywhere else it kinda of locks up and does nothing. I can use Facebook on my cell phone (no Firefox) and on Laptop A (chrome) so nothing wrong with Facebook. I tried turning on-off, all that stuff. Tried using MS Edge still would not load fully. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled, no help. I updated Windows 10 to 11, I can Run Facebook thru MS Edge but still cant thru Firefox. Just seems like Firefox doesn't like videos. Has my time expired with Mozilla Firefox?

I recently updated my system (OpenSuse15.4) which included a Firefox update to version 109.0.

I regularly use my mic for google voice, however even though I can select my microphone in Google voice, It never shows any input.

I tested my mic in other apps and it works fine. When I pull up my systems pulse audio volume control (pavucontrol), it does not show firefox in the recording tab like it used to when using Google Voice.

To test to see if it was a Google Voice error, I also tried testing my mic at https://mictests.com/, and zoom.com, but after selecting my desired input device, mictests.com was also unable to record anything, and again, pavucontrol did not show anything being recorded.

I have attached an image of pavucontrol that shows audacity recording audio. Normally, I would also see Firefox in this window when using the mic.

This is a very recent issue for me. A couple of days ago "tel:" links stopped functioning. I click on a callable link and nothing happens. I checked default applications, and tel: isn't even listed there. The first time it happened there was a dialogue box asking me what application to use, but after that nothing opened at all. I build and monitor websites, so I'm constantly checking these links for functionality.

Greetings...

I am using Windows 10 / Firefox v109.0.

I use the Screenshot feature virtually every day and find its availability extremely valuable. Unfortunately, I have noticed that the Screenshot feature appears not to work when I am on the HomeDepot website. While the "scissors" icon appears at the customary upper right location, when I select it, nothing happens. Multiple clicks on the scissors icon - nothing happens. Regardless of the webpage that I am viewing on the HomeDepot website, I am unable to create a screen capture of the webpage contents.

The above has been the case for some time now, so it's not specifically associated with my current version of Firefox. I have experienced this same problem when visiting the Lowes.com website. However, I have used other e-commerce websites (Staples, Best Buy, Wegmans, etc.) and have been able to use the Screenshot feature without difficulty.

Any idea why the Screenshot feature does not work on select websites, such as I have described above? Please advise. Thank you!

I have been using Firefox for many years. Suddenly I cannot get any sound from videos in Facebook, YouTube or anywhere. The settings in Privacy --> Permissions --> Autoplay are set to "Allow Audio and Video". There is nothing wrong with the computer as I can play videos and sound files on it with no problem. Sound is no problem on Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. It is just Firefox that after years of use the sound as stopped working. Can anybody help?

I had two Firefox windows open in the past hour, and accidentally closed the one I was using, and then closed the other as well to try to tidy the situation without realizing I could only access the most recent closure. Unfortunately, Firefox will only open the most recent session to be closed, so I can't access the 30+ folders that i need to restore from the first window. I am a non-technical person currently in hospital. Can anyone help?

WTF are you seriously not aware of this problem? You don't care that people have to use other browsers to watch videos on Netflix and Amazon prime? This is going on 3 weeks now! I've tried all the tips and fixes I have the Yellow bar that says Fire fox is downloading components nothing works for me. I'm Frustrated and quite frankly angry I chose to use and become so comfortable with Firefox. Just make a fix for it jeez! You have 1 week fix it or I swear by all that's holy I will uninstall and never use Firefox again. What good is a Browser you can't watch videos on!
