it can not update without a internet connection.
but if you wait even a minute after it has been installed it will update. you have to be fast. grin
then you have to open the internet options menu and find advanced somewhere and change it to never check for updates. i also turn off use background services. i don't know if the updateing uses this. i have closed firefox and reloaded it and went back to make sure it is still set to never update.
someone else, maybe on this list found the updater program in the program files x86\mazilla folder and renamed this file so firefox can't find it to do an update.

There's Firefox 52.6.0, which is the one I've attempted to install on my
Windows 7 machine, but it keeps updating without my consent even with the
Internet connection unplugged from the back of the computer.

I thought firefox stopped working with jaws.

Is there a version that does at this point?

did you turn off the internet connection as soon as you re installed it?
if you don't it will upgrade you as soon as you open it.
you have to leeve your internet connection off until you turn off automatic
updates and i also turn off the background services i think its called. this
is in the same advanced settings area.

This is rather strange, since I can run it fine on this machine with Windows
XP, same version (52.6.0), but I can't seem to run it on my Windows 7 machine
since February 14 of this year. Before then, it was working fine. When I
reinstall it, it automatically tries updating to Firefox 60, and I don't
understand why, because I've turned off updates to Firefox. Has anyone else
had this happen to them?
