unfortunately my english is not so good, my protection software comes from Bitdefender and it`s called Bitdefender Total Security. When I open Mozilla, I get always a little Bitdefender Window with a message the the protection system has blocked a malware site But if i run the security scan, nothings comes up.

Is it possible that this site is stored in the moziolla browser ? because the warning comes also up without any internet connection.

May be somebody has an idea because I am only an end user :-)

Many thanks in advance and sorry again for my horrible english

There are so many things you could try, but how about booting to safe mode and open firefox to see if it's going to that site. Or try running Firefox from the run command in safe mode.

Boot to safe mode:

Run Firefox in safe mode:

Or you can try running another scan using another tool to see what it gets. Like Malwarebytes or Kaspersky.

Like I said, sooooo many options.  ;-))

You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article;

Run most or all of the listed free to use malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
