What firefox version are you running ?
As this many firefox related hits on a google search for ImportEnterpriseRoots, some are quite old (in terms of security related issues), see https://techdows.com/2019/06/fix-firefox-says-your-browser-is-being-managed-by-your-organization.html and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-disable-enterprise-roots-preference.

Previously there were some popups related to MITM (ManInTheMiddle) injection into firefox, but Firefox has changed the way it checks this.  Not because this was a Firefox issue but the way Avast went about scanning https traffic for malware.

But, as far as I recall that this was resolved not to long ago and why I asked what firefox version you are using.
WinXP ProSP3/ Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ avast! free 18.5.2342/ Firefox ESR, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ DropMyRights/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 19.7.2388 (build: 19.7.4674.526)/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ WinPatrol+/

Personally I haven't experienced this in either my old FF ESR version nor the latest FF versions leading up to Firefox 69.0 (64-bit).

So we really would need more detailed information (context of getting the error, site visited, all sites, etc.) and a screenshot as previously suggested.

This seems to be related to the installation of Firefox Group Speed Dial.

I don't know how to send my two screenshots.

However, because of the difficulty of identifying the letters in you Verification system, I am giving up on the Avast Forum.
Thank you for your efforts to help but the forum is exceptionally user-unfriendly.

Well you have passed the Captcha hurdle, this anti-spam measure is only for the first three posts.

When in the Reply window there is the ' Attachments and other options' link below the text input window that allows you to attach your screenshot images.  Clicking on that expands the option.

I'd be curious to know what the spam rates are with and without the captcha system, honestly. Only reason why I say that is because those systems have been defeated many thousands (if not 10's of thousands) of times by bots...

That would be somewhat hard to quantify, how do you count the unknown ?

What I do know that in the past the forums were plagued by spammers.  At one point there were only two non avast team members dealing with it and it was a bloody nightmare.  Even with an increased number it still needs management and one of the side issues when dealing with spam it can slow the forum to a crawl whilst the background removal and number crunching goes on.

But since the harder Captcha was introduced it is more manageable.
