How to turn off automatic updates.
9/19/10 1:25 AM
Since I have updated firefox I now get automatic updates, as I have a poor/slow connection and because I simply do NOT want updates automatically installed I want to find out how to turn off this annoying"feature". Chosen solution
1.At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button (Tools menu in Windows XP) and then click Options. 2.Click the Advanced panel. 3.Click the Update tab. The auto-update options are displayed. Read this answer in context 18
If you’re on windows, you should have switched to Palemoon when the Sodomite Mafia fired the CEO.
Lots dont like the look of v 29.....me included
So updates are off on one computer. The other one has v 29 installed automatically. I’ll have to go uninstalll 29. Save bookmarks etc. Re-intall v 28
Ditch Firefox now.
It wasn’t a bad browser (in fact, it was my favorite). However, I’ll not support ANY company that bends over and presents their Obamahole to gays.
Thanks. I am going to check it out. I wonder if their resident sodomites are behind this unpalatable Firefox update? That is a regression in some ways
The transfer tool brought over some unique add-ons that really push the limits and IMHO make me a unique user and it all worked, and the back-up tool is way faster than Mozbackup....
Outstanding, I removed Mozilla it is that good.
Waterfox - The fastest 64-bit browser on the web
Waterfox is a high performance browser based on the Mozilla platform. Made specifically for 64-Bit systems, Waterfox has one thing in mind: speed.
I was unaware of palemoon. I am installing right now. Thanks !!!
Get off firefox, they are against people having personal opinions and principles
You should get pale moon instead
If you had been following Free Republic a couple months ago, you would know this
The options to disable auto-update apply to Pale Moon too ;’)
You’ll be much happier
What does the firefox button look like? I can’t find one.
But Waterfox is just Firefox for 64-bit. Yes, I use it. Tried to find a replacement after the forced resignation but it works so well and couldn’t find anything that equals it for performance.
I can’t figger out how to get Pale Moon from identifying as Firefox. Even though I dropped FF, it looks like I’m still using it.
I don’t know. I just got it when people on FR suggested it last month. I know it works like FF used to and their CEO put out a statement condemning what Mozilla did.
Probably. They destroy everything they touch. I suspect they're behind the un-needed and un-wanted changes to Microsoft products, e.g.; The Metro interface in Windows 8 and the Ribbon interface in Office 2007 - 2013. Colorful, eye-catching and looks "fabulous". It takes me three times as long to get work done. The simplest tasks have become an easter egg hunt.
“What does the firefox button look like? I cant find one.”
INSTEAD start from “tools” up on your menu bar which is upper left corner of firefox. You should see that menu bar with the words bookmarks, tools, view etc etc
The lastest Pale Moon version (24.5.0) is supposed to address that with a fix to the UserAgent string.
You might be right. MS has to keep customers on the upgrading treadmill. So they introduce stupid ribbons. The metro look-tiles makes sense for tablets and smart phones. On real computers it is annoying and must be bypassed by a 3rd party start button install. You might notice that Microsoft websites and advertising deploy that Metro look, They want the same graphical look across their products to condition/brainwash consumers.
This is why Metro was kept for Windows 8.1 despite tons of complaints. I had to install that 3rd party start button on Windows 8.1 too!
