Default Firefox marked the forum as an "Attack site" [RESOLVED]

This problem was caused by a bug in Firefox 17 - you will need to either delete your Firefox 17 profile and then restart your computer, or upgrade to Firefox 18 in order to fix the bug - please see this announcement for more detailed instructions:

Bug in Firefox causing intermittent Malware warnings

Jason


------------------------------------------


Right now Firefox warned me that diyaudio.com is in the list of sites that contain malware.

I run Linux, so I don't care, and logged in to warn you.

Just saw that as well. Even the details page says zero instances of malware detected. Sometimes shady advertisement servers are the cause.

I have the impression that this is simply an nuisance advertizing by Firefox for its "protection features". I took the time to look at the details and there are zero instances of malware ... attacks ... anything associated with the site in the past 90 days.

OK, then why would Firefox throw up a very disruptive warning, please?
