You can also use Upstart:

Create a file $HOME/.config/upstart/firefox-with-url.conf

Content:

start on desktop-start
stop on desktop-end

exec firefox <url>

Goto Menu > Preferences > Default Applications for LXSession > Autostart

There under Manual autostarted applications type "firefox" and click on "add".

E.g.;

Then, close the window.

Next, open firefox and click on the menu button.

Goto Preferences > General (tab)

Enter the desired website you want to visit on Firefox startup.

Finally, close and restart your PC.

You will be able to autolaunch Firefox and load your entered URL when your system is logged IN or rebooted.

People with LXDE in Ubuntu should add:

~/.config/autostart/my-new-app-autostart.desktop

With similar content to:

[Desktop Entry] 

Type=Application

Exec=google-chrome-stable www.google.com.uk

It works, I tested it, found it in lxde.org
