Prevent Initial Add-On Check in Firefox

"How do I prevent (or rather disallow) Firefox to check for newer versions of add-ons and themes and plug-ins before it starts up.
Since I am on a proxy connection, I get a dozen proxy password boxes every time I start Firefox.
This also seems to make Firefox load more slowly."
