another window opens to the side every time i open Firefox

more options

I downloaded the free version of Firefox and was transferring my bookmarks from internet explorer. And i added eBay as one of the bookmarks. Now every time i open Firefox eBay opens up to the side as another tab along with my homepage, Google. Both eBay and Google are visible on the same page but ebay is just to the left in a smaller window. It's annoying to close the tab every time i want to open Firefox

Right-click that bookmark and select Properties, then un-check the preference for Load this bookmark in the sidebar, and then click Save.

Using JavaScript buttons on web pages for "Bookmark this Page" causes that preference to be selected when saving the bookmark in that manner. So, don't use those buttons, use the "Bookmark this Page" feature that is built into Firefox instead.
