How to turn off Firefox usage hints

more options

Just now, as I was in the middle of something, Firefox popped up a usage tip about tabs. I find this disruptive. Is there a way to turn these off? If I want to know how to do something, I'll look in the help.

It's fine when you create a new feature to display a tab when I first launch after an upgrade, or to have the Help menu show a Latest Features item, but please don't interrupt my work with pop-ups.

For the moment, I don't see anything in Preferences about this. Is there an about:config setting I can add to suppress this feature?

I'm not sure exactly how those feature recommendations work but I found an article about turning some of them off through the Preferences page:

More information: Recommendations from Firefox

Does that have any effect on your Firefox?
