This is the Bugzilla@Mozilla bug report discussion mentioned above by Chrispcritters....
Bug 820283 - Sites stay marked as a malware or phishing even after removal from the SafeBrowsing DB
It's a fascinating discussion, and apparently not a simple problem. I recommend it as a read for anyone using software that needs to go through frequent updates, as it sheds some light on the process and considerations of diagnosing and fixing issues that don't show up for everyone.
I've encountered or observed analogous updating problems with Adobe, Microsoft, Google, Symantec, and Apple software, among many others. Last post now in the thread, comment #54, advising of current status, may not be comforting, as it looks at the issue from that of the software developer (as in part it must), but takes a very limited view of who actually is affected...
...we have no intention to fix this for Firefox 17 given that we are a week away from releasing Firefox 18. Any users who cannot wait are welcome to use the latest Firefox 18 Beta build in the meantime. The current Beta is very close to what we will actually be releasing on January 8.
Sorry, I know it's not ideal but this is the best solution we can offer at this time.
