In FF 3 I see little icons representing the external sites, next my links to them. I don't see this in IE 7.
Is this FF 3 default behavior, or maybe its because of an extension that I have installed, or a preference option I have turned on.
Even if one of above is true - can I as a web master, turn off this behavior of "pulling in of icons" so that browsers don't show them - regardless of how the user had the browser configured?
I ask because - one of the icons overflows onto my text. Who has to plan for this - me or them? Are these icons of uniform, standard width? Does FF automatically force over my text to allow for them - but why on one it doesn't work? I know my code is not professional - I am a beginner. I would like to understand 'what' is going on, so I can determine my options.
Do you mean an icon next to links within the page's content, in which case, it's likely to be an extension modifying the pages you see. I would first take a look within the add-ons menu (Tools >> Add-ons) and see if there were any obvious culprits ;)

If you have an add-on that is causing pages to view badly, it's highly likely that very few people are using the same thing - the add-on developer should fix it, not you.
