What are you using for a security suite?
Maybe that application has its own Web Forgery protection and It is disabling that feature in Firefox?

At the moment I use Norton 360. I have Norton on other machines and it does not turn off the Block Attack Sites nor Block Reported Web Forgeries. My first thought is that I have been breached and Malicious Code is the culprit.
