firefox checks add-ins everytime it starts?

I have updated Firefox to 10.0.1. Now every time when I starts Firefox, it checks the add-ins and open mozila site and my homepage in tabbed manner as it does when install first time or when we update it.

Which security software (firewall, anti-virus) do you have?

Some have virtualization features that can cause problems by protecting and restoring files in the Firefox profile folder.
