Hello fellow Firefox Users,
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?
Why not try Pale Moon if Firefox is giving you problems? It's
effectively a pre-FF 57 version (although there are some differences and
some extensions it can't run).
What happens if you manually set Firefox.exe (or whatever it is called)
to read-only? Does the updating process fail because the updater is not
allowed to change the file?
Thanks for your ideas and solutions.
