How can I disable the add-on update dialogue box that appears after an extension is updated in Firefox?

I’ve searched the web, and I’ve looked for an about:config setting, but could not find any that seemed to be related.

Try setting app.update.silent to true in the about:config.
I'm not sure if that silence might have some other implications as well, as far as not letting you know when updates occur.

actually this seems to not have worked, as the update notification box reappeared on a recent update. i checked and the config setting is still set to true... –  Bobby S Sep 8 '09 at 16:28
