Hey,

I was using firefox, and usually I say "no" when it asks if I want to allow it to make changes to my PC. Now, so firefox would update, I clicked "yes". So now firefox has updated.

So now, how do I go and "undo" the yes, so I get that popup box every time? I am not currently running it as administrator, I run it from the little task bar short cut bottom left. There's also a desktop shortcut. If I run that 'as administrator' I get the mesasge. But if I run it without right clicking and selecting that, I no longer get the message dialog box. Before clicking 'yes' earlier today I would get the dialogue box everytime without right clicking and running as administrator. Is there a list of programs that you have clicked 'yes' to somewhere that you can change back to 'no'?

I know there is something like ccleaner or something one of those tools that reset all of this, but I hoped there would just be a simple, easy list somewhere?
Cheers

you won't get that popup every time.....it will only appear when there is an update available for firefox,

 

you are now updated, so it wont appear till the next update is available

If I remember correctly I had auto updates turned off, and still got that popup. The popup goes away because I said "yes" and then it updated. Before I made updates automatically download, I still got the popup everytime. I could have said "yes" with firefox updates turned off and the popup does goes away. So is there a list somewhere of programs where I have said 'yes' somewhere?

Yes, in 'Tools - Options' if you use the menu bar, in 'Settings - options' if you don't.

Thought I'd update. Seems it may have been wanting to update that was causing this. Cheers guys
