Whenever I open my browser, the check plugins page keeps opening, even after I have updated all of my plugins.

How can I make this stop?

Chosen solution

That is a bug with blocklisting plugins that has been fixed.
You can correct this issue by forcing the file blocklist.xml to update or wait until Firefox updates the file.
That update will remove the severity="0" flags in the file that cause the problem.

Thank you! As I am not tech-savvy, I just waited for the update to correct the problem itself. Everything is running smoothly now.
