I'm running Linux Mint 20 and have installed a free version of ProtonVPN. My firefox browser has a banner at the top stating "Your Browser is Being Managed by Your Organization". Not sure how this happened, but I am unable to update the browser because of this. I read some of the previous posts and they all appear to reference a Microsoft OS and Avast.

Firefox cannot handle its own updates. It doesn’t know how to check the repositories and doesn’t have admin privileges anyway. In Linux Mint this is the job of the Update Manager so Firefox is told not to handle updates. In the past, this was done via code changes. We (mint devs) patched Firefox not to do it and not to show any warning about it. This is how it is in Debian and Ubuntu as well. With this transition this is done via a policy file, i.e. via system-wide configuration. Firefox shows the following messages in the preferences and in the about dialog as a result: Your browser is being managed by your administration Updates disabled by system administrator These messages can be quite confusing, especially the first one. Please ignore them for now. We’ll be reporting the issue to get it fixed upstream.

Just a note, The desktop Firefox web browser for Linux can handle its own internal updates, just only with the official builds from mozilla www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/

The Linux Firefox from Mint is a third-party build so Mint handles the Firefox updates.
