Mozilla Firefox

Sorry if this sounds a naff question but I've just started using Firefox as my browser and there's something I'm a little unsure about.
When I start Firefox it appears to connect via the internet to a Mozilla website and only then does it connect to my default search engine (Google) but the address line in the browser starts with Google.com and then has Mozilla extensions after it e.g. www.google.co.uk/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-GBShockedfficial
Is this normal with Firefox or have I installed something nasty ?

Re: Mozilla Firefox

That's just the default start page for firefox, you can change it in the preferences / options.
