I use XP and FF 3.0.3. I don't have the fastest internet service around so when FF loads it seems is checking for updates and addon updates each time it opens it takes a long time.
The reason I think that is doing that, is that occasionally the addon update box pops up with an update for a certain addon showing and asking if I want to update it.
I prefer to do it manually when I'm not waiting for FF to load.
Is there a way to fix this? I can't seem to find it in the options.
Thanks
Floyd
