Where are Firefox Portable update settings stored?

I remember asking a similar question before. i set Firefox Portable update settings to manual, but when launch FFP on a different PC, the update settings change to automatic (Even if the path to the profile directory is same).

Are Firefox update settings stored in the FFP directory?

Don't Know the Answer -- But Possible Workaround for Now

I don't know the answer to your question. However, if your aim to arrange things so that Firefox doesn't update itself via Mozilla updates then try the following:

Look in the folder FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox64 -- there is a file there titled updater.exe Rename that file to something different (e.g. updater.exe.disabled) or just delete it.

Do the same thing in the folder FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox

If that is a suitable workaround for you then be aware that you would need to do the same steps every time you update your Firefox Portable.

Personally after every install I always check that updates is set to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" Sometimes I find it is changed after a new install.

If no one directly answers your question then I would strongly recommend posting the query at mozillaZine Forums

Use Portable Apps on both Flash Drive and HDD/SSD.
