Disconnect from network.
Start Firefox.
Take a moment to appreciate the silence.
Close tabs.
Reconnect to network.

OR: Start firefox's profile manager:

   firefox -P --no-remote

Then create a new profile and start FireFox with the new profile. Not
100% sure how the studies feature works, but I am assuming it updates
more than just the profile, so once FF has updated you should be able
to open the old profile and get all your extensions and settings back.
