Turn off new profile notification in firefox v67

Posted

When v67 is installed on windows 7/10 for an existing firefox user, a notification pops up on first launch indicating that 'This installation of Firefox has a new profile. It does not share bookmarks, passwords and user preferences with other installations of firefox..'. Is there a way to turn this notification off so that users do not get confused.

I'm not seeing a way to prevent this page from showing on a new install when no profiles are present yet and a new profile got created if I check the source code (this is done before browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone is checked). This is the newInstall page.
