Why am I getting a "Opening tweet_button.html" pop-up when I open certain websites?

Posted

Just downloaded new Firefox version & when I open certain websites I get a message saying I'm attempting to open a tweet_box.html (which I am not, I'm just opening pages from my bookmarks), and do I want to open or save it. Multiple boxes open for each site (3-5). Not sure where to turn this off??

I noticed this after the 4.0.1 update. I also have people in my office reporting the problem on a multitude of computer systems all using 4.0.1. I've confirmed it's not any extensions while loading a fresh Windows 7 SP1 on a test box and loading 4.0.1. 4.0 doesn't appear to be having this issue. I tried changing the html (aspx) file to be opened with Firefox, it ended up opening 60 tabs and crashing the browser. However, I no longer get the popups after restoring my session. Though the tweet_button.html is not loading on the page correctly.
