[Closed] Allow user to disable auto updates on Brave



i have a slow internet connection, and it’s really inconvenient that auto update kicks in sometimes when i’m busy on the net.

at least, allow the users the option to stop autoupdate. but make the update notification persistent to remind users of the latest version.

I want to go back to the previous version of Brave

According to this ticket it will not happen unfortunately:


i do hope you reconsider. or at least give us a way to disable it “manually” via about:config (if brave has firefox’s about:config)


If you are disagreed, would you write your opinion on that thread? thanks.


@krove, a workaround once an update has started is to find and kill the update.exe process, e.g. by using Windows Task Manager.


What if the updator could throttle the bandwidth, though I’m not sure if it is possible at all?
