Actually we don't have to do that. You should be able to just remove it
from check for checkForPluginUpdate.

	| pluginVersion updateURL |
	HTTPClient isRunningInBrowser
		ifFalse: [^false].
	pluginVersion _ AbstractLauncher extractParameters
		at: (Smalltalk platformName copyWithout: Character space) asUppercase
		ifAbsent: [^false].
	updateURL _ AbstractLauncher extractParameters
		at: 'UPDATE_URL'
		ifAbsent: [^false].
	^SystemVersion check: pluginVersion andRequestPluginUpdate: updateURL

Let me know if this works for you!
