It sounds like your system is infected by a virus. I found this topic on mozillazine that also talks about this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=542798 You might want to read that topic to find out how others have managed to get rid of this virus.
So I'm marking this invalid. This is not a bug in Firefox, but some virus apparently, that's blocking Firefox or something.
