By default, Firefox is set for automatic updates. This will upgrade Firefox to the latest version. To turn this off, you need to change your Firefox update settings. Click the menu button (top right corner) and choose Options. In the General panel, go to the Firefox Updates section. Be aware that using old versions of Firefox poses a significant security risk!
