When I start Firefox by clicking on a link in e-mail or another document, Firefox starts downloading an update, even though I already have 4.0.1 up to date.

When Firefox is not started and I click on a link in an e-mail document, as it starts up, Firefox acts like I need an update and starts downloading an update. After "updating" several times, I verified that I have 4.0.1 and it is up to date, but this continues to happen every time Firefox starts up as the default browser.
