disable FF 63+ upgrade pop-up


FF is now relentlessly nagging you about upgrading to the latest version the MS-style. The only way I managed to disable this spurious twice a day pop-up is to create a subfolder firefox/distribution with the file called policies.json containing this short snippet:

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

Are you using a Slackware package? I have never gotten any upgrade notifications.

No, this is a new behaviour in 63+, where the option "Never check for updates" was removed. Slackware current uses ESR release 60.5.0.
