I want to put off for some time updating FF at least until I can do so without undoing everything I've done to get into a (for me) usable state.

Thanks.

Create a folder called distribution where the firefox.exe is located and place the policies.json file there, then restart.

* <installation directory>\distribution\policies.json

Code: Select all
{
  "policies": {
    "DisableAppUpdate": true
  }
}

Installation directory
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Installation_directory

Here is how to test if the DisableAppUpdate policy is working.

Go to the about:policies page and see if the DisableAppUpdate policy shows up in the Active section.

Go to the about:preferences#general page and see if the "Updates disabled" message shows up in the Firefox Updates section.

Thank you so much for this. I was terrified (well, that's a bit too strong, but ...) that I would inadvertently update. So, really appreciate it.
