I'm getting this too. It's firefox using a google list of dangerous sites, and you're on it. Direct links into the middle of the site seem to be ok. I can middle-finger it, but it leaves an ugly red stripe across page top

Confirmed! Me gets this to!
Is it to late to revote in "Browser of the year" poll, and kick off that FF to the bottom of list?

There is currently a thread going about this in the LQS&F forum.
