An organization that I do not recognize is managing my borwser, on my personal/private computer.

When I look at my options page in Firefox, it says "Your browser is being managed by your organization." When I click that, it takes me to an "Active: Policy Name & Policy Value" page. The details say: "Certificates, and ImportEnterpriseRoots, true" I have never heard of Import Enterprise Roots, and regardless of what they are, this is my personal computer, which I installed Firefox myself on. I do not believe that an organization should be managing it.

I tried uninstalling, then reinstalling it, however I still got the same message. I am not sure what to do, it just feels like something is wrong with that message.
