I typically opt-out of crash-reporting and privacy invasive features yet when I checked my settings:

"Allow Firefox to send technical and interaction data to Mozilla" was enabled along with "Allow Firefox to install and run studies".

Did I overlook on installation or was I opted-in by a Firefox update?

URL? Screenshot of the error so others can see what's happening when they read this.

Are you possibly using Sync because the control pref (app.shield.optoutstudies.enabled) is part of prefs that are synced between connected devices ?
