I hv problem opening certain urls w/ firefox in my laptop, when I enter certain urls, it brings me to other page w/ statement :"reported attack page: this webpage at has been reported as an attack page & has been blocked based on your security preferences" . I never customize security preferences before. This problem doesnt happen when enter the same urls on other browsers like opera, IE, these browsers refer the urls to the correct websites. Pls help, I hv the screenshot if you want me to send. Thanks for the favor.

That warning is coming from Google Safebrowsing, a security provider for your Firefox browser:

Here is Google's report on that site: *Google:

You need to update your plugins. It is important to keep them updated due to continuing security fixes and improvements in those plug-ins:

  • Shockwave Flash 10.1 r53
  1. Check your plugin versions:
    • Note: plugin check page does not have information on all plugin versions
  2. Update Shockwave Flash

Ok, let me break this down for you.

  1. The warning you are getting is from Google Safebrowsing warning you that the site you are trying to visit is not safe, according to Google Safebrowsing. If you will read the link that I provided provided ( ) you will see Google's explanation of what its research found on that site. You can choose to IGNORE the warning and PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! The Flash update in #2 below has NOTHING to do with this!!!!
  2. The recommended Flash update was to inform you that you needed the latest security update for Adobe Flash. This has nothing to do with the unsafe site warning in #1 above!!!!
