Add-ons are the responsibility of their authors. McAfee does not even put their extension on http://addons.mozilla.org you had to install it from their site.

Disable "McAfee Site Advisor" extension which was just updated to 3.4.0, which probably took it out of the addons block list.

  • "Ctrl+Shift+A" > find McAfee Site Advisor and use "Disable", and then restart Firefox.
  • Do a Google Search no problem
  • It seems that if you re-enable Site Advisor again, and restart Firefox you are okay. At least you know where to look if you get the error again or Google searches slow down.

This issue can be caused by the McAfee Site Advisor extension


Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
