'Block Site' merely blocks access to a list of sites, but does not stop them appearing. is there a way to stop websites which use <gob.mx> in the address, which attempt to re-direct to 'mirror' sites that try to steal personal info and generate 'Illegal re-direct' warnings from anti-virus programs from appearing in firefox searches, automatically, rather than having to enter <XXXXXXX, -gob.mx> each time I search ?

That is for adblocker Addons or 3rd party adblocker software if basic browser blocker doesn't work or something is wrong with the setup. Firefox doesn't control what sites uses to run their site that is going beyond what Firefox browser help does. Did you try to contact the site about this.

A content blocker will not stop (a) website(s) appearing in search results, nor will a hosts file. The only way is the method you are using. A blocker and a hosts file will prevent you loading the site(s).
