From a Mac user tired of constantly upgrading sys and apps and browser versions. Older versions like 40+ of Firefox had a THIRD OPTION re. updating the browser, which let you have peace of mind by not reminding you daily (or rather each time you opened the browser) that there was another "new" version. As an old user who has seen dozens of upgraded versions, and sometimes some unwanted change like this one (the missing third option in controls), I resisted upgrading for long, but recently had to give way. Surprised to get the only two options in the Prefs: either upgrade automatically, or get a reminder and upgrade or decline. This message of the same (or, monthly, another new) version keeps popping up soon after I open the browser, which may happen more times daily. Is it necessary, to be reminded each time? Distracting, and when you have other things in mind, disrupting and irritating. Well, I don't like upgrading for such losses of control, and would like to ask if there is a non hard way of blocking any messages to upgrade Firefox. Would be much obliged if it could be done. I sent messages to Firefox a few times, needless to say. Perhaps somebody versed overthere would have a solution. I would upgrade Firefox if I need or want, therefore I feel unwanted the update popping up message all the time. See picture. And thanks folks.
