    No,I can't say as if I have ever seen such a thing.I've been running Firefox for @ least 2 1/2 yrs.I suppose your version of Firefox thinks that it's an apparent threat.

    Usually addons.mozilla.org is a preapproved site on the Exceptions list here:

    orange Firefox button or Tools menu > Options > Security, the first Exceptions button

    That's so strange. I have it in a clean profile, which should be a faithful replica of a new installation.

    It occurred when I started getting the scroll bar at the bottom of certain pages in The Lounge again. So as I had fixed, it or so I thought by using 'Noscript' I reinstalled it but that failed. So thats what happened.
    FF was removed using Revo portable, its now back and has my few addons & seems OK with the exception of the side scroll bar going invisible. Restarting FF clears it.
