no.. I blame it on Wine.  Wine creates the pop up, and pops it up when no program at all is even trying to use it.  Older versions of Wine didn't do this, it as added as a "feature" and listed as a new feature... that the notification would happen on prefix creation. on Wine.. whatever version, 1.1.3X some version... 

Why can't Wine by default just write out in text in areas that are trying to use HTML something like "gecko not installed" with a hyperlink?  instead of a pop up that holds up everything.... and only seen when something is actually trying to use it.
