    If you want to set to "never check for updates" you can still initiate a manual check via "Help" > "About Firefox"
    Sorry, but i think you misunderstood. I dont want firefox to never check for updates, i want firefox to download and install the updates automatically without notifying me.

    I reckon you need to make sure that you are not in private browsing mode to be able to select the option without it being greyed out.
    Im not in private browsing mode, but the option is still greyed out.

    @Callender i will try out your addon and get back with the results.

    Okay I mis-understood. I thought you wanted to avoid update prompts. One way is to only manually check for updates.

    However - give this a try. I haven't tested the method.

    In about:config, search for app.update.silent and set the preference to true.

    As per these instructions:

    Don't feel bad about misunderstanding, apparently it happens a lot when this question is asked
    Your suggestion (even citing the same source) is the Chosen Solution in this thread.

    Sorry... I think you don't understand what I'm asking? I don't want to turn off updates. I want to turn off notifications.

    It was set to false, so i have set it to true. But im not sure how to verify if it actually works?

    I guess i can try testing it by installing an outdated addon and then testing to see if FF updates it automatically with this tweak.

    Did some testing to see if it works. I went to this website and installed an outdated version of ad block plus, and clicked on check for updates to see if FF would update it, and it did. After that, i installed the same outdated version of ad block plus again and went to about:config and set app.update.silent to true. I restarted FF to see if the addon would be updated automatically this time but it didn't, so i had to update it manually again.

    So you have to manually check for updates for your addons on a regular basis. Checking update addons automatically doesn't work either. Same goes for clicking on reset all addons to update automatically.

    I think you'll have to wait for an update to Firefox itself to truly test if it works, there's usually a minor update a week or so after a major version update. 58.0.1 was released nine days after 58.0.

    Major or minor update, it doesn't make any difference to the way it's delivered and installed. This is the first chance to see if your 'silent' FF update works as you wanted.

    Why is that though?

    Im going to test it later.

    Okay, so i did the same steps from post #189 again. I will give it a bit of time to see if firefox automatically updates the addons.
