When i download files with Firefox,the files that have been downloaded have a 'sharing' icon with them. When you look in the properties of the files, all of them(Downloaded with Firefox) are by default 'Shared with users'. This happens only with Firefox and no other browsers. At first i thought it was because of a malware but i scanned my PC with several antivirus and antimalware and no malwares were found. I use a home PC with Windows Vista 32-bit.

Are you using any sort of "downloader" add-on with Firefox? Or an external download program?
