Firefox says I have logged out in another window when I haven't.

I may be working in one window when suddenly I get a message that says "We noticed that you may have signed in or signed out in another window. Click OK to reload your page."

I may have been working in another window but I didn't sign in or sign out over there, so I don't know why I frequently get this message.

I have taken a photo (screen shot) of the window with the message if that would help.
