Nightly update nag, V63.0a1 ("Never check for updates (not recommended)" is now missing)

Hello;

A few days ago I updated Firefox to the latest nightly version, 63.0a1 
(Windows 10). Now, whenever I return to my computer and open the window 
that Firefox is in, I get a small alert window in the upper-right corner 
that says the following:

> A new Nightly update is available.
> 
> Update your Nightly for the latest in speed and privacy.
> 
> See what�s new.
> 
> Download Update       Not Now

There does not appear to be a way to turn this alert off. It keeps 
popping up. I can click on "Not Now", but it still comes back later in 
the day.

In version 61, which I have on another computer, the following options 
are available under Tools/Options/General:

> Updates:
> 
> Allow Nightly to:
> 
> Automatically install updates (recommended)
> Check for updates but let you choose to install them
> Never check for updates (not recommended) 

During the the last few days of V63.0a1, the 3rd choice (Never check...) 
is gone.

Is there a setting in about:config that can return that option? I really 
don't want to have that reminder window popping up all the time. I 
usually update within 10 days or so on my own. I don't need Firefox to 
be figuratively poking me in the chest every time I open the Firefox window.

Thank you.

Then why are you using the nightly build in the first place, and not the
release version?

The Nightly version updates twice a day (sometimes more if there is a 
respin).

It looks like you have Updates set to check for updates. Switch to 
Automatically install and you will just have to wait for the update to 
be installed each time you restart Nightly.

But don't you just love the new multiselect tabs and Block Autoplay 
features?

At your recommendation I switched to the "Automatically Install" option 
and it gets the job done satisfactorily for me. It will update whenever 
I restart Firefox, with no nagging along the way. I was under the 
impression that this option would restart Firefox whenever it felt like 
it, kind of like Windows 10 seems to do at times. But it will wait for a 
restart.

I'll check out the multiselect tabs and autoplaying options.

Thank you very much.

I like to have the latest features, but I would prefer not to be nagged

Apparently the latest feature is to block Videos from Auto-playing. See 
this article:

Yes, but the default setting is "Always Ask", so users will complain 
about the nag.

If they set the preference to "Allow Autoplay", they will complain they 
have to go to the icon in Page Info to block autoplay if they don't want 
a video to play.

If they set the preference to "Block Autoplay", they will complain they 
have to go to the icon in Page Info to allow a video to play on that site.

That's the beauty of modern technologies.  Windows 10 newsgroup was 
flooded with duplicates in the last 48 hours.  It's blocked for now but 
I suspect more is likely to come.

Coming back to this video blocking, I think it's a smart idea by Mozilla 
to bring it on.  People have complained for years and now they'll have a 
solution.

Perhaps we should suggest that blocking becomes a default and let users 
enable it if they want to autoplay.  Users should be in control about 
what plays on their machines.

I finally restarted Firefox after 2-3 weeks because it crashed (while 
scrolling through a Facebook page). This triggered the auto-update 
cycle. Oddly, it did not fully update. It was still the version from 2-3 
weeks ago. So I restarted it again and it updated to the August 3rd 
version, then to the August 4th version. This morning I went to Firefox 
which was already open, and a message box appeared in the upper right 
corner saying:

====
Restart to update Nightly.

After a quick restart, Nightly will restore all your open tabs and 
windows that are not in Private Browsing mode.

Restart and Restore       Not Now
====

So I am being nagged again, even though I am in the "Automatically 
install updates (recommended)" mode, which I hoped was a non-nagging 
process. I hoped it would just stay quiet until the next time I 
restarted Firefox, when it would automatically update. It was quiet for 
the last 2-3 weeks, until today.

So the nagging seems unavoidable. I wish I could use the latest beta 
versions without being nagged. It used to be possible, but it has 
changed recently.

Thank you.

Nightly isn't a beta version.

The current beta is 62.0b14. Betas only update twice a week on Tuesday 
and Friday.

Seems like your problem is using a development build and not restarting 
after every update. Leaving it running for 2-3 weeks probably isn't 
recommended.

Yes, it has changed recently.

See the changed section of 
<https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/63.0a1/releasenotes/>

Maybe you need to use enterprise policy.

To be more specific, what I am currently using is Firefox Nightly 
"63.0a1 (2018-08-04) (64-bit)" from the nightly update channel.

No nagging today yet.

Thank you.

Nightly usually gets two new builds per day, so "nagging" it's to be
expected. It wouldn't happen with the Release build I suppose, but you
wouldn't get the newest features in your browser then!

Hello;<br>
<br>
A few days ago I updated Firefox to the latest nightly version, 63.0a1<br>
(Windows 10). Now, whenever I return to my computer and open the window<br>

I finally restarted Firefox after 2-3 weeks because it crashed (while scrol=
ling through a Facebook page). This triggered the auto-update cycle. Oddly,=
 it did not fully update. It was still the version from 2-3 weeks ago. So I=
 restarted it again and it updated to the August 3rd version, then to the A=
ugust 4th version. This morning I went to Firefox which was already open, a=
nd a message box appeared in the upper right corner saying:<br>
<br>
=3D=3D=3D=3D<br>
Restart to update Nightly.<br>
<br>
After a quick restart, Nightly will restore all your open tabs and windows =
that are not in Private Browsing mode.<br>
<br>
Restart and Restore=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0 Not Now<br>
=3D=3D=3D=3D<br>
<br>
So I am being nagged again, even though I am in the &quot;Automatically ins=
tall updates (recommended)&quot; mode, which I hoped was a non-nagging proc=
ess. I hoped it would just stay quiet until the next time I restarted Firef=
ox, when it would automatically update. It was quiet for the last 2-3 weeks=
, until today.<br>
<br>
So the nagging seems unavoidable. I wish I could use the latest beta versio=
ns without being nagged. It used to be possible, but it has changed recentl=
y.<br>

<br>
Nightly isn&#39;t a beta version.<br>
<br>
The current beta is 62.0b14. Betas only update twice a week on Tuesday and =
Friday.<br>
<br>
Seems like your problem is using a development build and not restarting aft=
er every update. Leaving it running for 2-3 weeks probably isn&#39;t recomm=
ended.<br>
<br>
Yes, it has changed recently.<br>

I suppose there are some developers all over the world, so both builds 
can still be called "nightly" for at least one of them (-:!
