How to (re)activate security in Mozilla if I have ignored a notice that the website i tried to visit has been reported for something like malware. thanks

Kuphostiwe

I am so sorry if my english is so bad. I have opened websites that have given a notice as an unsave website. I have downloaded several file from those websites. A few moment late, I realised that I have done a big mistake and I overwhelmed with fear about my computer security. How can I reactivate the feature to block an unsave website? As a additional information, after I realised the "stupid things" that I had done before, I tried to reenter the websites but the notice did not appear.

Thank you so much. sincerly
