Firefox Monitor warns of a data breach

Making moves

I received an email from Firefox Monitor that my email addresses  and passwords were compromised on April 15, 2022. The company which had the breach was Avvo , a lawyer rating tech company who suffer from breaches often.  I don't recall ever accessing Avvo and if I did it would have been years ago.  Has anyone received a similar email?  Would Firefox Monitor contact me like this?  I don't recall signing up for Firefox Monitor, is this an automatic extention of Firefox?  I would appreciate someone who has any enlightening information to share it , so I can determine the best way forward.

Firefox Monitor is an optional subscription, but could have been integrated as part of creating a Firefox Account. This support article has the steps to disconnect:
