We use Dill here, and ran into this issue when students launched secure browsers as a part of standardized testing.

Reach out to your Dill support channel, they have two items that should help:
1. Pre-release version of Dill that adjusts the way the culprit launchdaemon/process works - this should resolve secure browser conflicts. v1.8.2.16 as of 10/17/2017.
2. Terminal command to unload the rescuerecordings launchdaemon - run as sudo if running locally (will need to reload prior to Dill use):

launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.swifteducationsystems.rescuerecordings.plist

Cheers!

Edit: should be noted that option 2 is not necessary if you've gone the upgrade option 1 route
