Have Firefox v75, 64 bit, on Windows 7 machine (latest). Firefox keeps trying to "download latest".

I have a fresh install of Firefox Version 75 64 bit on a Windows 7 machine. If I open a picture or other material copied from the web and saved to the machine, Firefox attempts to "download latest" even though I HAVE THE LATEST. I have never had a systemic problem with Firefox before. The computer was custom built hardware for Windows 8, but has 7 running on it. I plan to upgrade to Windows 10 but do not want to do so at present. Firefox runs fine except for this constant and annoying attempt to update which I have to abort.

Is this only when you open something?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Safe Mode didn't help, removing Flash didn't help. Attaching screenshot in case I wasn't clear in description of what happens when I open a stored picture.
