-------------------------------------------
Currently posting this after I've turned off the 'block access to reported attack sites' setting on the Security tab in Firefox, but according to the browser, it is telling me Neoseeker is a reported attack site and blocking access to it.

TBH I'm not sure if it is just Firefox being a stupid, immature browser again (it seems to have been deteriorating as a browser for awhile), if it's just my PC or if anyone else is getting this although I'm sure they'll post if they have.

The other browsers on my PC such as Internet Explorer and Safari allow access and don't tell me if it's dodgy or not (not sure if that's a feature in it or if it thinks Neoseeker is clean).



It seems to be just in the forums that access is being blocked though, from what I've seen everything else is fine (profile, news sections, etc). My PC is currently virus free and clean, along with an active Firewall. It is just Firefox that this problem is occuring in.

Googles Safebrowsing Diagnostic which I'm sure is what Firefox uses for it's list tells me that the site is clean.

EDIT: This probably would've been better off in the Forum Bug thread.

most likely from one of the ads neoseeker displays, in which case its not a site bug.

Aren't all ads done by adsense though? In which case it's Google causing the issue for being stupid.

Confirm for Chrome. It tells me Neo is a malware website. Not the front page, though, just the forums from what I tested. Safari works, though.

Firefox told me it's an attack site too.

If you're going to attack the rest of the internet, don't keep me out of the loop. I can help.
