I've always clicked Help - About to see which version I have, but recently I haven't been able to do that without the program instantly starting a download of a later version (if any). Anyone know how to find out without triggering these downloads?
Thank you both!
I've now set both of them to 'check but let me choose whether to install' (again!).
I chose that from the start I think, and I'm sure my settings used to survive updates. I guess Mozilla has got more nannyish
(I like to decide when to do downloads of any size, as they can make everything else grind to a halt if it's a slow connection/busy time.
I can't test the setting yet (as everything's up-to-date!), but I'm sure it's done the trick.
