Today in the morning, I tried to open up a website and I got the following message: "Deceptive site ahead Firefox blocked this page because it may trick you into doing something dangerous like installing software or revealing personal information like passwords or credit cards." Why is Firefox censoring websites now?

Chosen solution

I turned off the "Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software Protection" setting, and the site is available now.

Well, I they've been protecting from dangerous websites ever since. It is because you have the tracking protection on by default. Tell me if that helped and, Stay Safe!
