In FF 63.0 there is no possibility to disable browser autoupdate in settings or about:config.

One way is by using addon "Enterprise Policy Generator" to "DisableAppUpdate-Policy".
It generates policies.json.

I don't like a lot of addons, so disabled update by hand.

Create policies.json -> .mozilla/firefox/yourprofile.default/distribution/

fill in:
"policies": {
"DisableAppUpdate": true

worked perfect in 63.0

Just see in synaptic FF update to 63.01 is present, maybe this workaround is now useless ...

or use "manually" policy generator for lot of other parameters,
templates see: https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/
