What ewido is most likely finding is remnants from your cookies:

You should set up your Firefox so that when you close your session the cookies will be removed.

I would suggest emptying out your cache and cookies on a regular basis, and this would include removing temp files as well.

If you feel you have a malware issue I would suggest that you post here:

Without looking at the log it is really hard to tell, but that would be my guess. Don't post the ewido log do it in the Malware forum and someone will be along to take a look at it.

That really depends on you, do you want to keep them around?? The key word is tracking, although most cookies are harmless.

i only go to sites that is trusted

You would have to define trusted..
