Perhaps you configured a KDE Window preference that places windows with
the class assigned to Firefox on that virtual desktop. I do this for
certain applications.

To check, you can view the "Special Window Settings" via the "Advanced"
sub-menu of the window control menu (right click on the title bar to
see the window control menu). In the Geometry tab there is a setting
called "Desktop" that can be used to default (even to force) a (class
of) window(s) to a specific virtual desktop.

You can also view all established Special Window Settings in one place
in the KDE Control Center in the "Desktop" category
under "Window-Specific Settings".
