I see:
https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/components/nsBrowserGlue.js#1071

has this check:
      const skipDefaultBrowserCheck =
        Services.prefs.getBoolPref("browser.shell.skipDefaultBrowserCheckOnFirstRun") &&
        Services.prefs.getBoolPref("browser.shell.skipDefaultBrowserCheck");

and for release or beta we will be false:
https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/app/profile/firefox.js#237

I see this was modified in bug 1225648, lets see if :jaws might know more about this pref and what we should set in automation.

This was actually last changed by bug 1322723. Redirecting to dao since he worked on that bug.

The pref to set in automation is browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser = false.
