From Google Help there is a little snippet that explains that Google automatically instructs Firefox to start downloading the top search result before you click on it, so that if you do, it will load faster. It can do this because of a special prefetching feature in Firefox that isn't available in IE. If you don't like the idea, you can always tell Firefox not to do it - instructions on how to do this are available via the link.
