    Has anyone eliminated this bug by reinstalling the OS, and not installing Firefox's add-ons..?
    Does it happen on other Linux browsers?..

    Is this bug what's called a "super cookie"..?

    What time and date was this glitch first noticed..?

    Which OS's does this glitch target..? Which OS"s are this glitch free..? Does it happen with Windows..?
    This glitch is a general protection feature in a couple of browsers. Google has made a list of sites with malware and the browser checks this list every time it looks up a site. When the site is in the list the browser will display a warning. This has nothing to do with the system you're using. It has everything to do with this list, and possibly even one of the adds displayed on the website which might have triggered the google bot.

    The diagnostic page displays a hosting url which has absolutely nothing to do with lfo besides maybe adds or a link someone posted. The issue is now finding the link (probably an add), removing it and reporting the repair to google or let the bot sweep over lfo enough times to convince it that lfo is clean.

    When I clicked "Reply" I didn't get the warning.. I got the "you are not logged in" page.. When i logged in, I got the reply form.. It bypassed the warning...

    I'm bets you will find the reason for the problem easiest if you research it using SeaMonkey as your base, given that SeaMonkey is full of holes more than Firefox...

    Just maybe the solution will be more visible if you do some research on this glitch running Firefox 1.5 in Windows 98, or in Mac...

    Why hasn't this bug infected the "RedHat/Fedora Forum"..?

    Is it over?
    I haven't seen the warning today.
    Chrome is working as usual again as well.

    Things cleared up about 7 hours ago, but not sure that it's going to last. Hopes are very high that it will.

    I just logged in now and have not encountered that pesky pop-up. Thanks!
