The hxxp:// is a 'munged' URL, in case it's malicious. That way, people looking at a CF log won't accidently click on a working link to malware.
In this case, it's by design and it's a safe URL

There is nothing suspicious in the log.

Clear Firefox's cache:
Tools, options, Advanced, Network, Offline Storage <--cache, click 'clear now'.

In case one of your add-on's isn't working properly, you can check it in 'safe mode':
