Is there a way to turn off the prompt which says something like: "Looks like you haven't used Firefox in a while. Would you like to reset Firefox ?"

Thanks. So the accepted solution is this?

You can create a new Boolean pref with the name browser.disableResetPrompt and set its value to true to disable this notification.

browser.disableResetPrompt = true

I typically work in a non-administrative area. I created a FF profile in an administrative area just for convenience when I have to sign-in as an administrator to do something. But I don't often use FF in that administrative area. So 60 days is an issue there, and I don't like the consequences of accidentally choosing Yes to the reset prompt.
