I don't KNOW, but I remember digging into the "channel"
few years ago, and vaguely recall there being a file or a setting
(somewhere) that you can use to control that.
at one time, it was in the prefs.
Possibly checking the mozilla knowledge base, or user fora would
turn up something.
iirc, there was a lot of moan an groan about devs having removed
disabling of auto update.
overall consensus was that because users were not eager to update to
'latest and greatest' and new bugs, devs removed ability to not auto
another suggestion would be a little involved, but doable.
backup firefox, open wireshark or similar network analyzer, manually.
after update runs, open analyzer to see what url is used for update.
block update url in firewall.
restore firefox backup.
