the answer is pretty boring, instead ;-)
Firefox contacts google on startup on, at least, two occasion:
1) the firefox  homepage on, I think this case does not apply
to you as, if I recall correctly, debian modified it to "about:"
2) the phishing site list: the default behaviour is to ask google for
sites while you browse but you can switch it to download a daily list of
known phishing sites on startup. in either cases the browser will contact
google services.
