Firefox: Updates configuration

May 18, 2009 Leave a comment

Why does the Fire fox browser do the updates only when you start the browser? This is weird and it irritates me. When you want to do some quick check using Internet, you double-click the Fire fox icon on your desktop (or wherever) and now at this time, Fire fox displays a message saying, Fire fox is doing an update and the browser will be loaded after this. Heck! And you have to wait patiently until Fire fox finishes its update and its compatibility checking for the extensions. This is an irritating behavior with Fire fox.
However, this can be configured using the settings. See here. At least, now after the changes in the Update Configuration, Fire fox consults the user before doing anything on its own.

What do you like: automatic updates or asking the user?
