Default is on. Which means automatic updates from AMO
It still prompts you to let you know there's an update though.
The version of LibreJS on AMO is also maintained by us, so nothing to
worry about (you can still open the xpi file and check the source if
you like.)
The Mozilla editors also review the addon every time a new version is made as 
well for
security and other criteria.
