Firefox is just following the database maintained by Google on sites it automatically detects malicious scripts on that try to infect the machines of those who visit the sites. Here is Google's report:

"What happened when Google visited this site?

   Of the 6 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 5 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2010-07-16, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2010-07-16."

This is a lesson to webadmins to be more vigilant with security on sites they host, and any other conclusion formed about this is wrong.
