Hello FLEURET,

I'm not sure if this applies to your situation, but this might be "a souvenir" from the "disabled add-ons problem" a few weeks
ago …. If your extensions are working (which they should), then you could try to remove "hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug" from "about:studies".

If you didn't participate in the Firefox studies, then maybe you could check to see if there is a "hotfix" related extension in 3-bar menu => Add-ons => Extensions, in which case can remove it.

Note that Firefox Sync also asks for the MP at startup if you use this service. Other possible causes include having saved a password of a web page that is reopened automatically when Firefox starts (Restore Previous Session).

The problem remains - We have: - Deleted all extensions - Reinstalled Firefox (without uninstalling it) - No "hotfix-update-xpi-signature-intermediate-bug" from "about: studies" - No password / open web page For now the only solution is to disable the main MP Or cancel the first request from the MP each time you open Firefox (It seems we are not the only ones with this problem)
