Firefox Updated in the Background Error

For some reason I keep getting an error screen that says Firefox updated in the background and needs to be restarted, and each time it does that I get logged out and lose all my tabs and have to continuously sign in to my Firefox account and any other accounts I use on a regular.

This issue has been since late August and I've tried deleting and redownloading Firefox as well as switching to "check for updates but let you install them" in the settings.

Any additional help would be great since this issue is getting in the way of my work... When this first happened I didn't have a firefox account and lost all my bookmarks and had to sign into every single account.. I've learned from that initial moment.
