Can you please try it in a new (temporary) Firefox profile and see if the issue is still present? See this article to know how to create a new Firefox profile. Please report back the results.
If you are using AVG...disable the link scanner from the main page...this will stop the errors. It isn't a problem with internet explorer from what I can see but just with firefox. I was having the problem forever it seems until I did this. AVG must be clashing with firefox with this option enabled. It basically sees most web pages as malicious when they really aren't. I couldn't get into Yahoo or a lot of other sites because of this error.
