while running new windows keep on opening with some fixed url's.like"http://www.ð¸Þ%29úiÒ¸«ù½²ž‡qÝ‘€½¦a5Ã$¿9£á.com/?" and like addresses in my comp itself "file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Prashant/".
these windows always have six fixed tabs of fixed addresses and these windows keep on opening, sometime 6-7 windows get opened..its very disturbing. i have already tried uninstalling option but it still there.

Reproducible: Always
It sounds like you're infected with some kind of malware. Have you run an anti-virus scan recently? Unfortunately after-the-fact it's going to be hard to figure out how you got infected.  When did this start happening? What sites were you visiting before that, or did you download and install something around that time?

If you have malware installed it's likely not in Firefox itself so reinstalling isn't going to help. If it's add-on based running in safe-mode might disable it, and if so it may be relatively easier to get rid of. If safe-mode doesn't fix it then it's probably an external app launching things into the default browser.

You'll probably need help from http://support.mozilla.com/ to figure this out and clean it up, as well as an anti-virus scan
