At the top of my homepage, I'm getting a message "Downloading the latest applications", but the circle to the left keeps spinning, and no applications are downloaded. I don't know how to stop this, tried right and left clicking on the bar. This occurs every time I open Firefox. How can I stop or disable this?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

smal dots running around in a circle while message appears on a blue tool bar about 3 lines down from the top - it isd constantly on and annoying - I just might go back to IE8 if I cannot get rid of this problem!
