go away in about:config, but now it just pops up a window instead.
Assuming I'm a grownup and can handle the responsibilities of updating Firefox
at *my* leisure and not the spp's, how do I completely disable the auto-update
feature in Firefox 64? I don't want it updating, nor do I want to answer a
window asking me to update three times a day, so I don't want it even checking
for updates.
I'm seriously considering just nuking Firefox from my machine and using Chrome
exclusively over this.

You could search the Firefox newsgroup archive, SUMO, and mozillaZine to
see if that has already been answered.

So-called "googling" immediately yields a relevant answer without having
to search through all sorts of forums individually:
Yet another reason to stay with PaleMoon.


I like to make it difficult for these people that can't or don't know how to search the web.

Tip: Every browser has a search engine. ;)
