How to Change Firefox 4 Add-on Update Interval

By default, Firefox will automatically check update for all installed add-ons and extensions once in a day, useful at times to fix bugs or to add new features. However, if you don’t want Firefox to check update for add-ons every day, you can change the update interval to once in a week or month. Here is how you can do that.

 Run Firefox 4 and type about:config in the address bar and hit enter button. Confirm the security warning and find extensions.update.interval by typing it in the filter field.

extensions.update.interval sets the frequency of update and the default integer value is 86,400, which means 86,400 seconds, or one day to us humans.

To change the value, double-click on it and enter any value above 86400. For example, enter 604800 for one week or 2592000 for one month, and so on. Click OK to save the settings.[via]
