Hello fellow Firefox Users,
I am probably in the wrong place, but this is all I could find.
Last week I had a bit of a problem with Firefox and Office 365 OneDrive
loading thumbnails. With the help of Office support engineers we were
able to totally destroy Thunderbird and the profile I was using.
When I went to Help and try to figure out what was happening Firefox
began downloading the latest version and I lost all my use full tools,
plugins, bookmarks, and themes. This new 52.? was totally useless for
my work and caused me to open IE to finish some projects.
I resolved the issue be regressing backward to version 45.9 esr and
creating a user profile by hand. I now have Firefox working as well as
before with one exception.
Now, every time I load Firefox onto the computer (start Firefox) it
tries to download a new version and I have to manually stop the download.
I have Tools > Options > Advanced > Update set to never check for updates.
I have searched About:Config for the Update settings and values and
everything I can find indicate updates it should not be downloading.
After 21 years of using Netscape/'Mozilla products is it time to throw
in the towel and submit to Microsoft IE?
Thanks for your ideas and solutions.
