Status: New idea

I use firefox for many websites having to do with finances, and all of them insist on two factor authorization anytime I log in from a different device or browser. That's good for security, but when the browser updates, even by a minor version, this triggers the need for extra login security on most of those websites. It's expected, but when the browser offers to update multiple times/week, it gets sufficiently annoying that I end up dismissing the frequent update reminders.  May I suggest you have a tiered level of updates? Maybe a setting that would allow me to only see reminders for major updates, like security fixes or major feature additions. Thanks for considering, and by the way thanks for making it easier to offer a suggestion!

Tối ngày cập nhật hoài, phiền chết được, nên gom lại lâu lâu cập nhật một lần thôi, cứ 1, 2 ngày là cập nhật, người dùng cảm thấy bực bội quá. Nếu tình hình không cải thiện thôi tôi chia tay.

Update every night, it's annoying, so it's time to update once every 1-2 days, users feel so frustrated. If the situation doesn't improve, I'll break up.

stop updating firefox every other day

How about it? it's annoying, I remember when Firefox was good. It's bloated now, has about 100 processes running in the background. If it's not broken don't fix it.

Strollin' around

Absolutely agree.
Firefox updates are so frequently that it is a bit disturbing, I finally stopped all my work, and checked what the frequency of update notifications of Firefox is. Here are the results;
13May 10:17 Update notification - dismissed
13May 22:39 Update notification for the same version - dismissed
14May 10:48 Update notification for the same version - dismissed
It is all about update from 113.0 to 113.0.1
It means Firefox forces you again to update in 12h averagely, 2 times a day, even if you prefer to dismiss.
Actually, dismiss means that 'dismiss this version', but it functions as 'remind me 12h later'. Actually, this is a functionality bug, or false statement.

Once again I see a new version of Firefox!  No 113 !!!

It seems I am spending MORE TIME updating Firefox than ACTUALLY using it.

Please SLOW down with these endless new versions!

Making moves

Are the developers taking ANY notice of these comments because I'm seriously thinking of switching to a different browser because of the intrusive nature and frequency of these updates and the impact on my ability to perform simple tasks.

Please knock it off!

Making moves

I'm the original poster, and no... the developers are neither commenting nor listening. But having multiple browsers is wise, and the product is free, works well, and is still the best browser for some sites. So in windows what you can do is create two files to modify and un-modify the windows system registry, to disable or re-enable updates. That way you can disable the nuisance changes, and then occasionally re-enable, and do the updates. As for me,  I'm still on 108.0.2. My choice. These files should be appropriately  named with ".reg" extensions. Use at your own risk...

For file: "disable firefox background updates.reg"

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



For file: "enable firefox background updates.reg"

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00




Additional information

Windows Take a look

Given the planned obsolescence of certain systems
I discovered Linux

Take a look first glance discovered, the Directory for updates does not exist in Linux

Dear Firefox,

If you keep changing your browser more twice a year Chrome is going to be the only browser on the market; you making work for the users and website admins by updating to often; Also you lower the quality of your product by making it harder to user for no reason.
