Firefox 3.5.2 displays installed addons on every startup, is this normal?

I have an issue with Firefox 3.5.2 where on startup, it shows me the add-on panel with the message "X new add-ons have been installed." This happens on every startup, without having installed new add-ons since last startup.

"I've had the same thing happen for me, as well. It's not a normal behavior, so there are no settings to turn on or off.

Try reinstalling Firefox; that fixed it for me. It doesn't take long, so it shouldn't be a real problem."

"The same thing happened to me after downgrading from 4.x to 3.6.16. The re-install of FireFox didn't work for me, but I found something else that did.

When the dialog comes up, if you look carefully you will notice that one of the add-ons will be slightly highlighted (it is very subtle). That is the problem one, for me it was RoboForm. Just uninstall and re-install that add-on and the dialog will stop appearing when you open FireFox."
