Steps to reproduce:

I launched Thunderbird.

Actual results:

A message appears saying that "thunderbird is installing updates", once it's started, I go to settings > help > about thunderbird and see "restart TB to update". I have disabled automatic updates. Also, if I click on "restart", then the same "thunderbird is installing updates" message appears, and if I go to settings > help > about thunderbird, the same "restart" button is on again.

Expected results:

Thunderbird should start without automatically updating, also, if it does update, the about thunderbird page should reflect that, instead of asking to restart to update again.

You downloaded, installed and launched Thunderbird 91.0(beta) from Thunderbird or is this a distribution version?

Also, your Troubleshooting Information shows 91.0b3. The last beta in that series is 91.0b6, which will update to 92.0b1.

I downloaded Thunderbird(beta)from Mozilla's website, extracted the tarball, moved it to /opt, and made it available in the menu. By the way, forgot to mention before, the system is Linux, KDE Neon Testing. Well, then I guess something must be really wrong with that version, I'm going to download it again, and see if the issue persists. Thanks for your reply.

I downloaded thunderbird-92.0b1, and the issue hasn't happened so far. By the way, I didn't download TB-91.0(beta), I've been in the beta channel for some months now, can't remember the exact number version, but it was 70.something, that one got updated to 91.0, I should've mentioned this before, but forgot about it, sorry about that.

Thx, let's close this then.
