Default System Security

While using Firefox lately, I've been getting these random sites attempting load - not pop ups - sometimes I'll get a system message saying it's not a valid destination, other times it just* goes to the URL..* I've installed firestarter, and have ran chkrootkit and rkhunter.* Everything came back looking fine except for the warnings below from the rkhunter log.* I'd like to know what I should do about these, (if anything) and how to do it.
