    While waiting for a reply to my post #20 above, here is an update. I am posting this screen shot from my Firefox Portable 52.9 that shows what the Simple Add-on Manager is doing. I think the 1st item, Application Update Service Helper is the culprit (please refer to post above). I have been trying to disable this and the other 3 items after this, Multi-process staged rollout, Pocket and Web Compat but it does not allow me to disable any of these. But I can easily enable and disable any or all of the other add-ons, Starting from Ghostery down to Classic Add-ons Archive. What can I do?

    The troublesome items, Application Update Service Helper, Multi-process staged rollout, Pocket and Web Compat, are all absent for my other instance of Firefox, which it FF 45 and also from Serpent, although I have installed Simple Add-on Manager in both these.

    This is why I no longer use Firefox, especially after the fiasco in May that automatically disabled all add-ons (Serpent was unaffected).

    Here's some suggestions that may help although I haven't tried since I uninstalled Firefox:

    I am using Serpent from the day you first introduced it to the forum. Before that I had FF and I still use it from time to time.
    This is exactly what I use and only I keep getting this pop up. Weird :eek:
