I wanted to keep on using FF v48 (x64) and not to update to the latest version.
But, after a restart it got automatically updated to v56, although it was selected "Never Update" in Advance option.

Can anyone please explain and help?

Thank you

In short remove Mozilla Maintenance Service or disable it in Services.
