User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6
Build Identifier: Thunderbird: Version 2.0.0.6 (20070728)

I've visited the website http://www.frabirk-einkauf.com by chance. When I pressed the button in the middle of the page (more information) I noticed that the website  hat already monitored my IP adress and I closed firefox.

a few minutes later I got an email to the first email-adress in the list of my adresses in thunderbird to welcome me as a new customer.

Usually I never use this email adress with any form to fill in with firefox.

Thunderbird doesn't give away your e-mail to web pages. In fact it's almost impossible it could, given that the browsing took place in firefox.

Either you some virus/spyware/evil add-on on your computer, or somehow that page managed to steal information you had entered before in firefox (old form info). Or some other elaborate scheme...

Anyway, over to firefox. Please run a virus scan, and an add-ware scan to see if it finds anything.

Website listed in commnt 0 does not exist (has never been registered). Can you give us the actual address where you had the problem?
I guess you mean http://www.fabrik-einkauf.com/

and with IP information there is something like Zu Ihrer Sicherheitder und Identifikation werden Ihr Hostname (p549C6CD5.dip.t-dialin.net) und Ihre IP-Adresse (84.156.108.213) automatisiert abgespeichert. 
Its no Thunderbird/Firefox Problem

Please see http://forum.computerbetrug.de/showthread.php?t=49066 (there are a lot of other forum topic for this site too).

The Basic trick (for everyone else, since this link is in german).

You get a (Spam) Email with a link and this link is dedicated to your emailadress.

Then you click on this link and you end on this www.fabrik-einkauf.com Site. 
Because the link was dedicated to your emailadress you get this "invoice". 

So its not a Thunderbird/Firefox Issue...its just a Spammer Trick -> Invaild
