Don't dispatch updates every other day


(running Windows 10x64) #1

I’m working on different (virtual) machines. With the release of FF 64 I can’t keep Firefox from automatically downloading updates.

Not only is this dangerous because it’s becoming a habit to grant Firefox elevated privileges every other day. It’s also becoming rather bugging. And it also proves that Mozilla is tracking me when I’m browsing, by sending a request to Mozilla everytime I’m starting a Firefox instance.

Please, either re-add an option to NOT download a/o install Firefox updates at all (preferred) - or don’t dispatch updates more often than every second month.

The option to block Firefox from checking for updates was moved to the Policy feature. https://support.mozilla.org/kb/customizing-firefox-using-policiesjson
