  1. thank you so much.. its always irritating because of the auto updates which disabled my megaupload

  2. Thanks.... I really need that for a firefox version which I have infected to get login information from my collage's computer lab. So thank you very much.. Now I am overloaded with the huge range of passwords.

    That was a useful post as Firefox 4.0 sucks and crashes every time. I jumped back to 3.6 and disabled the updates.

    Thanks for the post

  4. Did that. It totally ignored the setting and continued to do what it likes to do. What to do now?

  5. Thanks. I hope it will disable the pesky requests to upgrade to Firefox 5... (I won't upgrade until my add-ons will be compatible).

  6. Epic post, keep up the good work.
