[Thunderbird] Submit-Something Popup

For the last few days, I've getting this weird popup in TB. It has a submit button & white text over a transparent background (i.e. right over TB's main window). I'm not going to submit anything unless I know what it is -- and this is impossible to read!

I'm getting the same thing in the upper right corner. It has a read book icon.

Nothing to worry about, it is just a test pilot that Mozilla organizes to know how much memory TB uses and how many opened tabs are being used on average. As far as I know it does NOT send any personal info.

The Test Pilot Extention can be disabled and/or uninstalled via the Add-Ons Manager.

As a reminder, not all studies and surveys will go to all users and the first study will only apply to English language Thunderbird. By default, you can decide whether or not to send the collected anonymous data to Mozilla. You are completely in control of what gets shared.
It looks similar to this:

Thanks, for the info; addon is disabled. But my popup looked nothing like yours!
