Disable “Firefox has just update” tab from appearing

without comments

So I decided to finally stop the madness with all of these updates and figure out how I can disable the default behavior of Firefox to let the end user know their browser has been updated. For a normal user, this is not a problem and actually probably a good thing. For a Sys Admin installing updates to labs, the lab users do not care if their browser has been updated.

Anyway, the line to change is located in the “about:config” in Firefox. Search for mstone and change the value to “ignore” for the Preference Name :
browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone

I hope this is handy for others out there. Oh, another good reference site is the following.
