I have been running Firefox 5.0.1 just fine. Today when I opened Firefox it started doing a automatic update to version 6.0
I guess several questions comes to mind
1st and foremost, why is it doing an "automatic" update? In preferences it is set to ask when there are updates to Firefox. So what use are the settings in preferences if they ignore my settings? That is pure BS!
2nd now that they have saw fit to update my version of Firefox it now tells me
I was/am running flash 10.3 r181
I thought Synaptic was the right way to update my machine! According to synaptic Firefox 5.0.1 and flash 10.3 r181 are current.
So why did firefox update me to 6.0 as indicated in the troubleshooting information
User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:6.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0
How can I make sure that Firefox DOES NOT update automatically at the developers whim? And perhaps breaking things such as plugins that I use? This is my machine not theirs, I want control over my machine!!!
By the way my machine is fully updated as this morning.
