Comment (by akrey):

 The prompt looked like that, with the notable exception that I read
 'refresh tor browser', not ...'firefox'. That was what tricked me into not
 cancelling this.

 The browser.disable... is not in the saved prefs.js

 I don't remember seeing a notification banner, and I definitely did not
 click any. (Might a stray <enter> land there?)

 TBB was probably installed as 5.0.3 and then upgraded regularly.

 It might be that this happened when a different monitor was connected to
 the laptop.
