    The steps below guide you through setting the configuration files required for Firefox to not only turn off updates, but deny the setting entirely. Also note, this is on a per computer basis. This process will need to be replicated on each computer/server as necessary or desire.
    Note: The install directories used here is default for a Windows 64-bit operating system. You install path may different.

    Create file local-settings.js in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref

    Copy the following and save in file

    pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);

    pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

    Create file mozilla.cfg in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox

    // lockPref("app.update.auto", false);

    lockPref("app.update.enabled", false);

    Test and confirm access
    You can confirm this by going to the Preferences and Update tab and find that the update options are greyed out. Alternatively, browse to about:config and the above options will be in Italics.

    If the above solution doesn't work, you can also try:
