Unfortunately I just have reinstalled firefox, now all seems to be ok, exept a fact that my synchronization profile was a bit old and I lost many bookmarks=( Thanks for help anyway.

Hi,

Please check if the page has been set as the homepage in Tools (Alt + T) > Options > General > Home Page. Options > General

If you have many tabs open you can try to check if a tab corresponding to the download address is open, and close it. You can also try deleting the sessionstore.* files in the Firefox Profile Folder. This file stores the open tabs info when Firefox is closed. Please note that deleting the files would start the next session empty. You can try to bookmark the needed tabs by right-clicking on a tab > Bookmark All Tabs.
