McAfee Siteadvison 3.1 warns that FF 3.6.8 has problems when downloading directly from Mozilla

more options

FF 3.6.7 popped up a download msg telling me that 3.6.8 was avaliable to correct problems. The update seemed to go as expected, but when I opened the new version and went directly to Mozilla to download a copy of the program from there, McAfee's Siteadvisor 3.1 popped up a warning that the download contained suspicious content.

This happened

Just once or twice

Similar Problem only I didn't get a message about suspicious content, but McAfee Site Advisor has stopped working. The icon in the Firefox toolbar is grayed out and doesn't report status of sites when searching with Google.

See McAfee about an update for that extension.

John, Probably a false positive, due to McAfee not being ready for the Firefox update. If they took the time to keep up with impending Firefox updates, they could avoid inconveniencing their customers.
