It's just Firefox trying to load your home page, or any "Live
Bookmarks" (i.e. RSS feeds) it's subscribed to, even before Tor is
ready to make outgoing connections.

Every time Tor starts up, it takes a little time to build "circuits".
If you attempt a connection before Tor is ready, you get the "No Tor
server exists that allows exit..." message.

You may safely ignore this error. Or if it still bothers you, you may
(1) set your home page to a local html file, and (2) remove any "Live
Bookmarks" from your Firefox bookmarks, to prevent Firefox from making
connections as it is starting up.
