If you get a pop-up message asking to update Firefox or plugins or scanning for malware then such a message is likely a scam and you should NEVER respond to such an alert to avoid getting infected with malware.

  • only update Firefox via "Help -> About" or by downloading and installing Firefox from the Mozilla server and never via a pop-up or link on a web page.
  • plugins should only be updated via the plugin itself or by visiting the home page of the plugin.

To get a site on the list for malware and phishing protection, you can report it here:

https://safebrowsing.google.com/safebrowsing/report_badware/

Here in support we can only point you to reporting links, we don't have any ability to add sites ourselves.
