Why does the top line in Firefox settings page say, "Your browser is being managed by your organization"? I have no 'organization' for ‘Firefox."

Do you have any active policy on the about:policies page? If you have, that info shows up.

Thanks for your help. Here is what I found: Policy Name Policy Value Certificates ImportEnterpriseRoots true

And I don't know enough to understand what that is or if it's something I did! LOL One problem I'm constantly having is when opening Firefox it always tries and fails to open the last windows I had opened in the session before closing it, and I have to then click on "Start a new session."

What security software do you have?

Seeing the "Your browser is being managed by your organization" notification at the top of the Settings page is in most cases caused by security software that uses GPO policy rules to inject their root certificate in Firefox to be able to intercept and monitor your internet traffic.

Note that you can click the "Your browser is being managed by your organization" notification or open the about:policies page to see if policies are active and if errors are reported.
