Stop automatic downloads in Firefox?

Just noticed today Firefox is automatically downloading as I write. I would prefer if it notified me that downloads were available first.

This is a new laptop with Vista. On the older one with xp, I kept getting reminders that the latest version of Firefox was available. Of course I didnt d/load as I was changing the laptop.

Is this a vista issue or is there a setting somewhere to make it notify me of updates?

Go to Tools/Options/Advanced, click Update tab, change the settings.
