This is not a notification about updated browser but a notification that Web (or Push) notifications technology is enabled. See for details.

Comment 5 Eric Lavarde 2016-07-12 13:07:11 UTC
The notification message seen in the screenshot hints quite clearly at a new feature ("Upgraded", "now", "learn more"), and a new feature should be announced the first time Firefox starts after the feature has been added and not each and every time Firefox is started.

For this reason, I disagree with the resolution. Could you please reconsider your decision?

Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2016-07-12 13:15:52 UTC
I don't quite understand what shall we fix here. Does the notification show for fresh/clean profile? I don't see it on my desktop on my recent profile.

Comment 7 Eric Lavarde 2016-07-12 14:38:12 UTC
If you copy the attached DB in your profile, Firefox will start to notify you each time you start it, so the two questions are:
- why does it notify you each and every time? fix it :-)
- and (more difficult) how did it come to "corrupt" the DB? fix it as well

Comment 8 Martin Stransky 2016-07-12 14:51:01 UTC
What is business need for that? How many users face this issue? Does it stop FF deployment somewhere?

More inputs to the problem: it seems to be related to visiting BlueJeans and accepting notifications on this site, so here is a reproducer for me:

0. make a backup of permissions.sqlite
1. purge the moz_perms table from permissions.sqlite, the issue disappears;
2. copy back the saved permissions.sqlite, issue reappears.
3. only purge the moz_hosts table, the issue does NOT disappear.
4. purge the moz_perms table again, issue disappears.
5. revisit BlueJeans, go into a meeting, accept to receive notifications (the site doesn't always trigger this query, don't know why)
6. the issue reappears.

With a reproducer, you must admit that it's a bug, right?
