Hi. Those should be updates - stop it from doing so by doing the following:
1. Go to Local Disk: C or which ever one that has your Operating System files
2. Go to Programe Files
3. Go to Mozilla Firefox
4. Modify/rename the 'Application' file called 'Updater' (rename it to whatever name you may like - enter the Admin password if necessary)
5. Modify/rename the 'text' file called Update-Settings (rename this as you please aswell and save as prompted - enter the Admin password if necessary)
