**[Affected Versions]:**
- Firefox Beta 97.0b2 (Build ID: 20220111185943)
- Firefox Nightly 98.a1 (Build ID: 20220111093827)

**[Affected Platforms]:**
- Windows 10 x64
- Ubuntu 20.04 x64
- macOS 10.15.7

**[Prerequisites]:**
- Have Firefox Beta 97.0b2 downloaded on your computer.
- Have the "browser.search.region" set to "US".
- Have one of the [treatment user.js](https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1R_Kl51yPO9RCiuUmCHNOCqs3FQQAU2bD?usp=sharing) on your computer.
- Make sure there is no other modal displayed when starting the browser (browser default, onboarding for new users etc).

**[Steps to reproduce]:**
1. Open Firefox Beta 97.0b2.
2. Navigate to the “about:support” page and paste the user.js file into the Profile folder.
3. Restart the browser.
4. Click the “Find out how” button from the modal.
5. Select the “Allow” option and click the “Save preferences” button.
6. Open the "about:preferences” page and verify that the 3rd toggle from the Firefox Suggest section is enabled.
7. Go back to “about:config" and set as `false` the `browser.urlbar.quicksuggest.dataCollection.enabled` preference.
8. Restart the browser.
9. Select the "about:preferences” tab and observe the 3rd toggle from the Firefox Suggest section.

**[Expected results]:**
- The  3rd toggle is disabled.

**[Actual results]:**
- The  3rd toggle is enabled.

**[Notes]:**
- [Here](https://drive.google.com/file/d/1onkSFi1IjzTkblw8_xyR3wLV59UVitVj/view?usp=sharing) is a screen recording of the issue (captured after opting-in the experiment).
- The behavior is reproducible only once. As seen in the video, I have set the preference to `false` again and followed the remaining steps, but the issue was no longer reproducible (the value remained set to `false` as expected.
