On application run of Firefox my firewall blocks access to "mirror.mirror-files.com/tnt2/10252/FindWide_16.ico" and flags it as a 'Mal/HTMLGen-A' threat.

I'm running Sophos Endpoint Protection on my PC and have 2 android devices synced to firefox. Also have LastPass on the PC. I recently installed and then very quickly uninstalled open office (due to adverts from Yula), following that uninstall I used ccleaner to tidy up the registry etc. Need your help with the process of elimination, if its a genuine firefox function then I'll open it up otherwise its time to hunt waskally waabits!
