Updating to today's Nightly gave me a message (see screenshot) suggesting that I import favorite sites and bookmarks from another browser.

This is a little weird, because this is the Firefox profile that I've been using for 6+ years now. Why suddenly offer to import data?

I'm not sure what the current logic/intent is for this, but seems like this should only be triggering for recently created profiles.
