Your user agent string shows that you are using Firefox 126.96.36.199, this is an old and unsupported version of Firefox. One of the key protection features of Firefox 188.8.131.52 no longer works, so you will no longer be warned if you visit a suspect/malicious site. You should upgrade to the current release version, Firefox 3.6.13 available from http://www.mozilla.com
