Delaying Firefox Updates

You should wait before installing new versions of Firefox, which could impact system performance. Delaying updates gives College Board and AIR time to review changes and verify each system works correctly with the new version.

To learn how to disable Firefox auto-updates, see support.mozilla.org/en-US/ kb/forum-response-turning-auto-update. You may need to disable auto-updates again after installing a newer version.
