Firefox and plusone.google.com. How can I stop a screen popping up when loading certaing sites (www.bhphoto.com) to start a ssl connection to 'plusone.google.com' ?


Every time I get to certain web sites, there is a pop up screen trying to access 'plusone.google.com' via ssl. I just notice that after implementing a firewall, and of course blocking that. That does not happen on IE. What gives ?

More Information

Blocked it with firewall, but would be great to stop this. I looked everywhere and I can't find anything else that I can disable.

That's probably a firefox security warning, can I ask exactly what firefox is telling you please so I can verify my thoughts and tell you how to fix the problem?
