I donít want anything doing automatic updates.

There is no urgency and platform stability is important. My preference is to wait at least a couple of months after general availability, user tested and patched, so I only update a couple times a year. When I do, I first create a restore point so I can back out if something goes wrong. If itís a release or a new version that canít be backed out, it doesnít get installed.

Not specific to Firefox. Same with Windows, Adobe and other sw I use frequently, and I usually update most sw around the same time.

Exception, of course, to antivirus product.

Never thought of it that way, but know a few guys I used to work with years ago that did the same. Hmmm..something to definitely consider doing. Thanks for your opinion, MichaelB. I might convert to that philosophy, too.

Please consider adopting a rescue animal. So very many need a furr-ever home and someone to love them! And if we all spay/neuter our pets there won't be an overpopulation to put to death.
