    then open the extension manager [under Tools], right click on all the
    extensions and disable them one at a time, and restarting each time,
    until you find the one trying to update itself.

    continued . . . At that point, the guy is so mad that he throws the
    bird into the freezer. For the first few seconds there is a terrible
    din. The bird kicks and claws and thrashes. Then it suddenly gets very
    quiet. At first the guy just waits, but then he starts to think that
    the bird may be hurt. After a couple of minutes of silence, he's so
    worried that he opens up the freezer door. The bird meekly climbs
    onto the man's outstretched arm and says, "Awfully sorry about the
    trouble I gave you. I'll do my best to improve my vocabulary from now
    on." The man is astounded and amazed at the transformation that has
    come over the parrot. Then the parrot says, "By the way, what did the
    CHICKEN DO?"

    Close FF.

    In the FF program folder go to the Updates folde and then the 0
    subfolder; delete its contents.
