Set your preferences on Privacy for cookie to 'Ask me every time'.  Remove all
cookies that were set. Close the browser.  Start again.  Open any webpage.   Now
the alert saying that 'www.spreadfirefox.com' is trying to set a cookie appears.
 I am opening Yahoo, Google and from where does this 'spreadfirefox' come?
No cookie setting in a blank profile. Do you have a live bookmark of the
spreadfirefox feed perhaps?

Yes, I've spreadfirefox as one of the live bookmarks. 

Also it is like a 'timed'.  Popping up in intervals. 
When firefox requests the feed from spreadfirefox, spreadfirefox sends a cookie
along with it. This is expected behaviour.
