How to Disable Check for updates button in Help/About in firefox 5.0

Hi the user should not manually check for updates so we want to disable the Check for updates button also in Help/About.
Thanks in advanced

You can hide that button with code in userChrome.css below the @namespace line.

* http://kb.mozillazine.org/Editing_configuration
You can use the ChromEdit Plus or Stylish extension to have easier access to the customization files.

<pre><nowiki>@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
#aboutDialog #updateBox { display:none!important; }</nowiki></pre>
You can also choose to lock the related update pref(s) to false if you want to make sure.

  • How may one cancel the download of an update that was started by having actuated the "Check for Updates" button in the "About Firefox" window, please?

    How may one cancel the download of an update that was started by having actuated the "Check for Updates" button in the "About Firefox" window, please? If possible please cover all platforms, Mac, Windows, Linux, although the first mentioned is what currently applies to my circumstances.
    Thank you.

    Such a download is usually saved in an updates or updated folder in the Firefox program/application folder.
    You can delete this folder to cancel the download.
    If files already have been downloaded then remove the files in the updates and updates\0 folder.

    Can't you install Silverlight and the plugin for all users rather than a specific one?
    I would guess/hope/expect there'd then be one plist file for everyone?

    Hi,
    If you are referring to Help -> Check for Updates, I'm not certain if that is possible.
    If you mean Tools -> Preferences -> Extensions, just uncheck the Automatically Check for Updates box. Doing that is standard procedure for improving the tool's launch performance.

  • How to disable checking for updates on Mac Silverlight for enterprise environment

    Hi Guys,
    We are trying to create a package for our enterprise environment to push the install of Silverlight for the Mac and have it not automatically check for updates.
    What is the best way to do that?
    I found the setting in the com.microsoft.silverlight.plist file that was in the user profile/library/preferences folder.
    Is there a way to have this UpdateMode key set to the desired setting regardless of which user is logged onto the mac?
    Thanks.

  • How can I set Firefox update preferences via script so I can configure our 200 Macs to disable checking for updates?

    Most of our Mac users do not have admin privileges. So when they get alerted about Firefox updates, they don't have the ability to install them. We would like to disable Firefox for checking for updates, then push out updates from our software server as needed. We have about 200 machines to configure. Is there a way to disable checking for updates via script (bash or Applescript)? And if so, is there a guide or web site to explain the process?

    Use a mozilla.cfg file in the Firefox program folder to lock prefs or specify default values.
    Place a file local-settings.js in the defaults\pref folder where you also find the file channel-prefs.js to specify using mozilla.cfg.
    pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
    pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // use this to disable the byte-shift
    See:
    * http://kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences
    You can use these functions in mozilla.cfg:
    defaultPref(); // set new default value
    pref(); // set pref, but allow changes in current session
    lockPref(); // lock pref, disallow changes

  • Disable "check for updates" iTunes AND allow update iPad iPhone

    In an enterprise environment we followed http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2102 to disable the "check for updates" in iTunes, although this is preventing users from updating thier iPad and iPhone devices as well.
    How would we manage the Windows computer software (disable check for updates) but allow users to manage (update) thier own portable devices that require iTunes to update?

    No.  For now we have decided to perform the default install for our users with specific instructions not to update when Apple informs them of an update.  When they see the pop up notification of an Apple update, they are to open the SCCM (SMS) "Run Advertised Programs" where we have packaged the new version to install with Admin rights.

  • "Check for Updates" button in iTunes not working

    Hi there,
    Forgive this post if it is a repeat - I searched and didn't see this exact problem though (but perhaps it's a common one at any rate).
    I have a lot of apps on my "Applications" page, and until recently, iTunes did a great job of allowing me to quickly check and then download all of my updates (usually on a daily basis) from that page. Now, when I click the "Check for Updates" button at the bottom of the window it says I have none - even though my App Store icon confirms for me that I indeed have several updates ready to roll.
    I have de-authorized, re-authorized, restarted (computer and iPhone), re-logged into my account, and even deleted some and re-downloaded some of the applications.
    Does anyone know what might be happening?
    Thanks in advance,
    Max Izod

    you may need to uninstall and reinstall itunes. reauthorize the account after doing so.

  • HT1688 I can not restore and upgrade my Iphone 4. When i plug in to computer itune's restore and check for update buttons are not active.

    I can not restore and upgrade my Iphone 4. When i plug in to computer itune's restore and check for update buttons are not active. What is that mean?

    Razmee,
    Guess what? After posting, I read another thread on this topic where someone said they went to an Apple store and the tech person there added the optional username and password in the Outgoing Mail Server boxes, and then reset the phone again. Although I had tried resetting and restarting a few times today, I had NOT reset it after entering the username and password into the optional fields.
    When I entered my username and password into the optional fields, the iPhone entered checks (ticks) to the right of every entry; it had not done this earlier. (I didn't reset at this time, and the outgoing mail would still not transmit).
    So just now, I reset it and the outgoing email was sent!
    Thanks to you and this forum, it's a great ending to a few frustrating days.
    I hope this message helps others. Not only does everything have to be entered correctly in the respective boxes; but once everything is entered and you press the "Done" button, every box should then have a check mark next to it and then you must reset the phone.

  • How to enable "Check For Updates" ??

    how can I to enable "Check For Updates" in the Help menu ??

    There is an outside chance you can download the updates and install them, but in the case you have that probably would not work. Are you logged in as an administrator?
