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?

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