Windows 7: Problem regarding firefox 8 tabs

Problem regarding firefox 8 tabs

Hello. When I first open Firefox many Tabs with "Install Add-on" are open. The screen shows a message "Another program on your computer would like to modify Firefox with the following" On each tab a different Add-on is referred to. This happens after i close computer, and then turn it on, or even after i log off and then log on again. How can I stop this happening?

Did that, reinstalled firefox, even downloaded again the kit from the server. Same problem. Then, i installed firefox 7, and i did not get this problem. Also, this problem occurs on firefox 9 beta as well. So i guess it is just for firefox 8 and 9. If there are no answers to this strange bug i am having on firefox 8/9, i think i will remain with firefox 7.
