The add-on "4.0.50524.0 " looks like crap. Uninstall that add-on or start FF in Safe Mode, and check "Disable all add-ons".
Plugin, I mean. It could be an add-on, though.
"4.0.50524.0" is probably the Silverlight plugin, so no need to remove it. -- Do a malware check with a few malware scan programs. You need to use all programs because each detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database.
