It's there because you've visited it recently. . . and www is part of the address of www.redtube.com

clearing all the private data from firefox might do it.

You should be able to delete it by highlighting it and pressing the Delete key.

It is beginning to sound like a possible infection of sorts.

No. . . this isn't an infection

you can always wipe your profile. . . that will get rid of it for sure.

Fixed, thank you.

I did this:

Stop showing bookmarks in URL bar in FF3:
user_pref("browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled", false);
user_pref("browser.urlbar.matchOnlyTyped", true); <<<----------- Some reason i couldn't find this one.

Allow typed entries in address bar to clear with history (FF3):
user_pref("places.frecency.typedVisitBonus", 0);
user_pref("places.frecency.unvisitedBookmarkBonus", 0);
user_pref("places.frecency.unvisitedTypedBonus", 0);
