You may have ad / mal-ware. Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

Did you look carefully through the programs on your PC for anything that looks suspicious as detailed in the above article? It may help to look at the dates when programs were installed, to root out any suspect ones.

OK, it's possible that the shortcut icon on the Desktop has been corrupted. So start Firefox from Start Menu > All Programs - or do a search for Mozilla Firefox. If the malware doesn't appear, right click on the Desktop icon > Delete. Now right click on Mozilla Firefox in All Programs > Send to > Desktop (create shortcut). You should now have a clean shortcut icon on your Desktop which you can drag back to the original position.
