Why is my Firefox searching for updates when aut. updating not is enabled?

<< < (4/4)

^^ Sorry about that. Maybe the clip is for an earlier (older) version of Firefox(?).

I run on the FF beta channel, and it always automatically uploaded and installed the latest ß version, but then recently the ßs started crashing a lot, so I searched for a way to block the installs, and came across a post that showed how if I changed the settings for 2 fields in about:config, then the auto-install would become "manually accept". So I did that and it worked.
However, I can't for the life of me recall what the specific settings were.    :-[
So the settings I copied above were the best that I could come up with.

-wow, that was thorough answer! Thank you, 4wd!

As my above screenshot shows, my personnal setting was "NEVER search for updates", yet was "True", which can explain a lot. I have changed it to "False", now time will tell if that's all that's needed.

Thanks again, 4wd, your answer was way beyond what any one could ask for! :Thmbsup:
