"Firefox can't update to the latest version" popup

I'm on my laptop w/Win 10. I keep getting a popup with "Firefox can't update to the latest version," but if I select "Download Firefox" I get a page about FF for Android (I already have FF for Android 80.1.2.) I manually downloaded and updated FF to 80.0.1. Going to Help>About, FF tells me "Firefox is up to date." But I still get the FF can't update popup. I don't want to turn off the notification in case there really is a problem (actually, I don't know that there isn't a problem, but if there is, there's nothing I know that I can do about it).
