correct, you are. see #3 below.
not needing, never looked.
for reference for all on mozilla configurations while they are
1- configuration prefs listings;
2- rest of about:config entries;
3- application update is;
Version 36.0.4 is still running just fine. In order to keep it from
updating I have removed the update directory and files that it
automatically created and downloaded. I realize this is a bit heavy
handed, and might not even work, but I really don't want version 37 on
this system again. I have also used about:config to make the change
above. I'll be sure to let every one know what comes of this (yes, I
have other systems in case my actions turn this great machine into a
pile of smoking rubble).
