Firstly: it is 2022. Why does Firefox still force a restart after an update?
Secondly: Since when were those delivered by Mozilla themselves and no longer through apt/dpkg? This is the third time I had to restart Firefox at the most inconvenient time.
@pcy I use mint without snap for precisely that reason. Though it appears mint does something weird with firefox.
nvm: I found out that mint comes with automatic updates for all packages enabled. I probably would never have noticed if Firefox wouldn't behave so badly.
@Pixdigit firefox not only updates itself but puts itself on the beta channel with no easy way to switch back
@kai yeah I would have nothing against some beta-testing but not if it isn't clearly communicated with an easy way to turn it off or having it as opt-in only.
But yeah I already opted out
@Pixdigit the only way I got back on the stable channel is editing .firefox/defaults/pref/channel-prefs.js and replacing beta with release, then waiting for stable releases to catch up with the beta I was on
