The robot icon and diagonal stripes in the address bar indicates Firefox is being remotely controlled by other software on your computer. Hover your mouse cursor over the robot and a tooltip will appear giving a reason. One way this can happen is if you start with the -remote-debugging-port command line argument. If you are unsure, you should scan your system for possible malware.

Note that this is usually caused by a user.js file that sets some prefs.

  • user.js => remote debugging:
    devtools.debugger.remote-enabled = true
    devtools.debugger.prompt = false

Removing this user,js file in the profile folder and resetting affected pref via about:config should fix this.
