Same here. Tried many things but not able to find a solution. It seems the answer on this question is not yet to find on the internet.

The one thing I did that was successful was 1. Power off the phone. 2. Plug it in to charge to 100% 3. Unplug once 100% 4. Turn the phone on.

5. Immediately RESTART the phone (close apps and restart option) while battery still 100%.

This works however, if you do an update download, it may reappear weeks later immediately after updates are made. If so, follow same process.

If you have Firefox installed, that likely is the culprit.
