Auto-Update Setting Not Honoured

more options

I have chosen to not auto-update the browser because it interferes with my work. The precise setting is called "Allow Firefox to" "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" (screenshot attached). However, this setting is not honoured. Every month, the browser auto-updates and forces a browser restart for me to continue working (screenshot attached). For 126->127, there was in fact no notification to update and the update happened automatically in the background with a restart forced upon me. What's the point of having this setting if it's not going to be honoured?

This setting has always worked for me. What is does it update a file in a folder whose name starts with Mozilla and is stored in the hidden folder

C:\ProgramData\

On my system, it's

C:\ProgramData\Mozilla-random-GUID?\updates\308046B0AF4A39CB

In that folder, my update-config.json file has this text (I bolded the really critical part which records my update preference):

{"__DEFAULTS__":{"app.update.auto":true,"app.update.background.enabled":true},"app.update.auto":false}

So this leads to two thoughts:

(1) Maybe there is a problem with your update-config.json file -- not being created, getting erased, etc.

(2) Maybe there is some other software on your computer that force-installs program updates. We have that on our office computers, but it's not typical on a home computer.

Полезно?
