I'm using Firefox 32.0.3 with Win XP. This problem, if that's what is, started recently. The first time that I connect to a website (say, Google) after starting Firefox, the download symbol appears indicating download activity. This is the downward-pointing arrow that starts near the middle of the page and moves up to the download icon on the toolbar. This occurs over the space of about 1 second. It's the same sort of event that occurs whenever something is being downloaded from a website. This happens on several different websites; although, I haven't kept a careful log of which sites are associated with these events. As another bit of information, when using the same version of Firefox on a Win 7 machine, I never encounter anything like this.
My question is: Is this normal or does it indicate some sort of malware activity. Since this problem started I've done full system scans with Symantec Endpoint and with Malwarebytes and not detected anything.
