Thunderbird Portable: Automatically check for updates

TBP is set to check for updates to itself and add-ons. Is that behavior desirable? Most portable apps should be updated manually. If that is also the case with TBP, I suggest setting those options off by default.

Just Checks

It just checks. It doesn't auto-install. And we have to leave it on.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Maybe add it to the support page.

There is a list of user settings on the TBP support page. I think new users should know that they should not install it when prompted. There could be a warning about it with instructions for them on how to disable it themselves.
