You could try troubleshooting to fix 4.0.3... (follow the 4.0.2 troubleshooting steps, even if it is for Firefox)

What older version do  you want?
4.0.2, 3.5.23, etc?  
This is the only place I could find old Chrome extensions... (the link below is to X-Notifier versions): 
https://www.crx4chrome.com/history/16793
I have not tested installing these old versions, and after clicking the version you want... the only download button that worked for me was the one labeled:  Google CDN
It seems to be valid, but use at your own risk... I have not tested.

This may work...

Open My PC/This PC/Windows Explorer/File Explorer/whatever...

1. Navigate to > C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\

2. Right-click on the extension folder (same as Chrome store extension id) and select properties...

 ....X-Notifier 4.0.3 extension ID should be: cdfjbkbddpfnoplfhceolpopfoepleco

3. Double click on the “Read Only” option (to make it checkmarked, not a black square) and click Apply... then when asked, apply it to All files.

...perhaps... this will prevent auto-updating the X-Notifier extension only.

Thank you for the answer, but x-νοτιφιερ  continues to do auto update.

I think the 2nd way is better... (Exit Chrome while doing either way)

1. Like RpD's way, but in Properties select the Security tab, click Edit... and for all user groups (1 by 1) specifically Deny the 'Write' and 'List folder contents' Permissions (scroll down) by checking the checkmarks. Click Ok in the warning popup and also leave the Properties by clicking Ok.

2. Corrupt the update_url:
In the cdfjbkbddpfnoplfhceolpopfoepleco folder open the version folder and open the manifest.json file in an editor like Notepad(++). At the bottom of the file content you'll find the "update_url": "https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx". Just add XXX to the crx foldername and save the file (Ctrl+S) before you exit the editor. That will suffice and allow you to change it back when you want to undo it.

 If your Yahoo account stops working, it might not be a problem with X-notifier.

Maybe a half a year ago, one of my Yahoo accounts stopped working.

I figured I'd browse direct to yahoo-mail, sign in manually.  I don't remember why I wasn't able to log in -- Either they wanted security replies that I provided in the 20th Century but was unable to provide today, or maybe they wanted a phone number that I was unwilling to provide today.

I hypothesized that the account was probably one of the 50 million that were hacked a couple of years ago, and yahoo was purposely making it almost impossible to log in -- "for my protection," just in case I was one of the hackers.

Anyway, I finally gave up trying to get back into my account.  The password that X-notifier was using to log in was not sufficient anymore to get into the account -- one day, they wanted to test me before allowing it to work anymore, and I couldn't do it.

So, that account stopped working, and I lost it.  A perfectly good, old account without a connection to any other account, phone number, my mother's maiden name, or anything.  And in this age of domestic spying, I considered that a substantial loss.

In summary, I concluded that Yahoo had targeted the account, preferring to render it inoperative, that it wasn't a problem with X-notifier.

Hey neil,
When your Yahoo account stops working meaning you cannot login to your account manually, it is pretty obvious it has nothing to do with X-notifier. So what is your message here?

Hi Jeroen.  Long time no see.

My message to Pfg, in summary, was that I concluded that Yahoo had targeted the account, preferring to render it inoperative, that it wasn't a problem with X-notifier.

-----------

I got a happy ending.  I just took the opportunity to try to log into that account again.  They offered to take my phone number, whatever their rationale was.  They gave me a choice between two buttons, "Continue (after entering my phone number)" or "Cancel."

I chose Cancel, and it immediately brought me into my account!

That's a substantial improvement.

Anyway, it's a reminder: If you can't get into your account, especially with flipping-Yahoo, there's a good chance the problem is with Yahoo instead of X-notifier.

Well... ok, non of us asked Pfg whether he can indeed login manually.
