Mozilla shows and blocks homeshopmachinist.net as a reported attack page though I have been using it up until several hours ago for the past 5 years. I wanted to access the link MOZILLA gives to "unblock" it, as opposed to hitting the ignore button, and Avast! blocks access to that page, stopbadware.org as the certificate is invalid. You see the problem that has been created? What do I do to get out of this loop? Hoping for your sakes that the original blocking is legitimate and NOT a false positive. IF it turns out to be a false positive, good-bye AND I will spread the word.

Avast is not a good internet security software. It does more harm than good. Change to Kaspersky: www.kaspersky.co.uk if in the UK or www.kaspersky.com.

I notice that your using Windows XP. There is no longer security support for that operating system from Microsoft so you'll be prone to get bugs. its not Firefox fault so upgrade your operating system. I'm not sure if Kaspersky softwares will work on windows XP but its worth a try. If not, then upgrade your operating system.
