Hi creditfc8, where do you see a notification that the site is malicious??
I get a connection error for https://msi.nga.mil/ which indicates that the certificate can't be verified as legit. Specifically, when i click the "Advanced" button on the page:
msi.nga.mil uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER
Is that what you see?
I think this is a frequent issue for .mil sites because they don't use a commercial issuer that participates in the process used to determine trusted certificate issuers. So browsers have no way to confirm that it is the real site versus an impostor.
Such government website use DoD certificates and you need to install these certificates yourself in Firefox to be able to access .gov websites.
See the All or TrustStore tab:
PKI CA Certificate Bundles: PKCS#7 -> DoD PKI only -> For DoD PKI Only - Version 5.x
Verify that all DoD certificates are installed properly in the Firefox Certificate Manager in the Authorities tab under "U.S. Government" and click the Edit button to verify that the root certificate(s) have a trust bit for websites set. Intermediate certificate should never have trust bits set.
