Same scenario here. Cleared everything. But if I reboot my PC, the warning returns the next time I visit the forum. I'm running FF v17.01.


Still having to uncheck the block box with FF v17.01

v17.0.1 here. If I clear the Firefox cache and then open dbstalk, everything is OK. Then if I close FF and reopen, and open dbstalk, I get the warning message every time. Basically FF is unusable with dbstalk...
IE works OK.....

I'm seeing the same thing on my iMac at home. The same version of FF, 17.0.1, on Windows 7 at work has never seen the warning. :confused:

The site still works fine after dismissing the warning.

I use FF, and this seems to happen the first time I come to DBSTalk for the past few days.

Almost now sounds like a FF issue as it clearly states that it is clear. I am running MAckBook Pro FF 15.1 and Chrome and Safari and I have not seen the issue after it was cleared by Goole.

Please note...I am currently in bed with 103 temp for the last 2 days. So, well, I really can't do much more on this as currently nor would I know what else I could do. I have had the site scanned 3 different sites, and nothing. Why FF 17.1 is saying it has an issue, I am not sure.

Thank you.

Get well soon
Chrome didn't give this message, and even with FF, it's intermittent for the past couple of days, so I'd give it only a nuisance rating.

I posted the text to show it has been cleared.

BTW...we were not alone. It actually turns out the installs of OPENX were have an opening. Meaning OpenX has a open hole that that can not seem to find.

http://forum.openx.o...topic=503520006

Seeing I have removed OpenX from the site a few days ago, we are good. But I surely will be checking the databases and also maybe looking for new software.

Update from bed...

Scott is having the same issue with FF users on his site and reports this...

"As you might be aware of there is a bug in Firefox which reports sites as possibly being bad after they are removed from the warning list. I talked (emailed) with the Stop Malicious software guys and they say they are aware of the issue and Firefox is working on fixing the issue. They however don’t have an ETA on a fix, which means people will get random popups warning your site could be bad even though its safe."

So a thanks to Scott for sharing this info as I really have not contacted them on it needless to say.

Augh again!

That's what I was thinking... since I have not seen this problem running Firefox 18... whatever beta version it is on at this point.

So I'm guessing whatever the original problem with OpenX that is now gone by removing/disabling it... Firefox 17 is having a problem resetting itself with the new data... but Firefox 18 seems to be behaving.

For what it's worth... since I missed the initial problem, before David addressed it... I actually have not seen that warning redirect once. So it would appear whatever is funky with Firefox 17 has been addressed in Firefox 18 beta.

-- I like to go fast (not really)

I'm sure what is leftover is a FF issue, but back on 12-23-2012, 08:34 PM PST even Chrome would give the error.

Yes, even after unchecking the box to get on today, DBStalk locked up my firefox and then my computer.
I hate to use it, but it looks like IE is going to be my DBS dedicated browser for the near future.

Chrome is your friend over IE. IMHO. You say it locked up FireFox and then your computer. To me that reads you have other issues as it seems FF is the issue as the site should not lock your computer. (Or even FF) IMHO.

You're probably right David.

But both IE and Chrome work here fine 99.9% of the time on all sites.

FireFox - that one's had issues for a long time on numerous sites. It seems it simply is not kept as current as other browsers.

Hope you got some rest and are recouperating.
