Hi, I am visiting a site from my favorites and suddenly I am greeted with a red page urging me that this site has dangerous content and I should leave it? Why is that? There is an option to ignore the risk but I want this red screen disabled and not to see it again. How can I disable it and possibly even delete it from my computer?

In the settings I have unchecked this: Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software Protection Block dangerous and deceptive content

but still get the error. How can I disable this stupid page!

That could be from your protection programs.

If a page doesn't reload in a new way as expected after a change, you can try clearing the web cache, which contains files Firefox has stored temporarily to reduce bandwidth usage:

How to clear the Firefox cache

Note: cache is separate from history; I do NOT suggest clearing your history.
