Silent updater for firefox
« on: August 11, 2009, 04:49:13 AM »
I don't like getting interrupted when I launch firefox to discover there's an incremental addon update or new browser update. To me the worst time to ask this is when i just started a task. So I've been looking for a silent updater for firefox (ala chrome) as I always accept all updates anyway. I can't find any do you know of such a tweak/addon?  Is this possible to make as an addon and if so would anyone be interested?

There used to be a setting under edit>preferences>advanced>update, but I don't see it anymore in my FF3.5.1
