Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130618035212

Steps to reproduce:

Absolutely Nothing, in fact, I expressly turned automatic updates OFF.


Actual results:

Firefox would not let me open a new window and insisted that I reboot my computer before allowing me to use the browser. This has happened numerous times lately and it is becoming a deal breaker.

I was in the middle of working on some web publishing and I needed to check my updates. instead of being able to continue my work I was forced to close all my open applications that I was not finished using so I could shutdown my computer  and get Firefox working again. This happened at a critical time each time it has happened and I cannot be forced to do this anymore.



Expected results:

I disabled automatic updates, in fact, I set it to "NEVER CHECK FOR UPDATES", so why is it updating at all.

I am seriously **** off over this and if it happens again I WILL stop recommending Firefox and remove it from my computer. Fortunately, there are many other good browsers out there today and I am not forced back to Internet Explorer.

To make me stop what I am doing and force a reboot IMMEDIATELY is absolutely insane.

Which Firefox versions (updated from X to Y) and which operating system(s) is this about?

FIrefox has no such prompt to restart your computer as far as I know.
