Norton 360 is saying conservative websites such as Fox News, DAily Caller, and Hot Air are fraudulent while using the Firefox browesr

Started early Thursday Morning-would go to the above websites (hardly controversial) and in most cases would them show a separate page stating"Symantec has blocked this as a fraudulent site and would be potentially harmful to click through to the article. It started with dailycaller.com, then progressed to hotair.com and then foxnews.com this morning. I contacted Symantec/Norton 360 and they provided me with nothing tangible. I have been using them for seven/eight years and never run into this. Any thoughts? I would prefer to continue to use Mozilla/Firfox as my primary browser. Sincerely, J.C.

Since a Symantec security application blocked those webpages and provided that warning, you should post in the Symantec or Norton support fora. Not a Firefox support issue with that type of message.

My thoughts - sounds like you picked up a bit of malware. Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista if you don't already have one. Windows 8/10 have antivirus protection built-in.

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.
