User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3

Upon my opening Firefox, a few seconds later Firefox opens a second time and shows a site advertising its wares, not always the same site, for instance ive had 1&1 open up, Deutsches Telekom and others. If I close that firefox then I have no further interuptions and can use the first opened firefox.
It seems like some Adware bug but strange that it is always another site that is opened!

Is firefox.exe always open? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Firefox.exe_always_open
Does Firefox also open a second page if you load Firefox in the Firefox safemode ?

answer to the question"is Firefox always open", No I only open it during web sessions.
Just read the URL i posted which explains how to enter the safemode.
