how to stop Firefox updating?

Post by jeepster » 2020/10/02 10:47:04

Firefox updated to version 78 which has problems. I yum downgrade firefox and got version 68, much better.
I added this line to yum.conf:
installonly=firefox-68.12.0-1

In Firefox config app.update.auto is false

But Firefox updated to version 78 later in the day.

You could do a web search with these keywords:
yum blacklist package

Edit: I'm sure you know that C6 updates will end in few weeks time?

You need to exclude it. Edit your /etc/yum.conf and add something like:

Code: Select all

exclude=firefox

installonly= is the wrong parameter to use for this, use exclude=
