    I access Facebook using the latest versions of Firefox on two different computers, one running Windows 8.1 Pro and the other Windows 10 Pro. I have gone into the Facebook Messenger settings and turned off "Show when you're active". It seems like a week or two later, I will notice that it has been turned on by itself and I have to reset it to Off.

    Is this some kind of a temporary setting or am I doing something to turn it back on without knowing it? I noticed it was turned on today on the Windows 8.1 computer. On Sunday, I did accept a message request from someone who has never before sent a message to me. That was on the Windows 10 computer.
