I keep getting rerouted to a webpage that wants me to install an upgrade to my flash player. I know this one it is a malware distributor. How can I block this website! It is reactiveplayer.com. it wants to autoload a malware program that is purported to be adobe Flash. It is a malware autoloader! I need an app, add-on or extension to block such sites from ever showing up on my computer again.

First of all make sure your Ads Removal addon isn't any kind of malware, make sure you need it and it does its job. For removing ads I personally recommend Adblock Plus. You can also report insecure website through menu -> report site item. There is no such thing like webpages blacklist in Firefox (you can use eg. this plugin to do it). Blocking reroutes would result in irritating problems with many websites.
