I am using Firefox 98 in Linux Mint 20 64bit. I notice that "Your browser is being managed by your organization." appeared in settings. I dont know when exactly appears but it is after one of the last updates. Is there a way to fix? I can see topics related to Windows and Avast, but this is in Linux.

In Linux Mint the Update Manager is responsible for all software updates, and applying updates requires root privileges. “Your browser is being managed by your organization” might look a bit scary but all it means is that Firefox was told to not worry about updating itself. In the About dialog, “Updates disabled by your system administrator” has the same meaning. We’ll work with Mozilla on this, first to rephrase this, and hopefully later this year to be able to handle Firefox updates from within Firefox.
