How to disable automatic updating of extensions?
Operating System: Windows
Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):
Where is the option to disable automatic updates of extensions? My extensions constantly get updated behind my back, using my limited bandwidth (I'm on dial-up), and I haven't found a way to stop this.
This feature has been requested before long ago:
Why isn't the decision whether to use auto-updating left to the user, as in other decent browsers (e. g. FF)?
I *hate* software that does not let me decide...
So, sorry, this hint wasn't too helpful solving my problem...
I didn't mean to be rude, but just because I agreed to some EULA that does not mean I cannot / must not criticise something I regard as a missing choice. Microsoft also had me agree to some EULA when I installed Windows, and they also mentioned the possibility of auto-updates and necessary information transfer to them, but still the Windows Update feature can be set to manual or disabled completely. So all I'm doing is requesting a function which is missing and which would be making the software more user-friendly (IMHO) for dial-up users. (Hope that perhaps someone from Google is monitoring their "Suggestions" forum...)
Disabling the Google Update plugin is a nice idea indeed, will try and see if it does the job.
Thanks! : )
Disabling the Google Update plugin doesn't work either.
Disabled it yesterday and today my extensions got updated _again_. >: (
Must be something Chrome does on its own independently of Google Update.
*Please* add an option to stop this / determine the schedule manually.
According to this post:http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r26653479-Chrome-Iron-how-to-prevent-extension-from-auto-updates，I changed the 'update_url' in 'xxx/Default/Preferences' to 127.0.0.1.
Does it work the same way as yours? Or I have to change the update_url in both files? Thanks.
