[edit reason] Please no specifics of your site or someone else's [/edit]
The feedback I'm getting from my users is that they cannot get rid of the screen appearing constantly, and they are likely to have accessed the site directly.
If the visitors are accessing the site directly... ie, not through Google... that rules out that the warning screen is due to cloaked malware (of the sort that would be visible only to Googlebot or to visitors coming in through Google).
That's not true because the browsers, like Firefox and Chrome, use the Google Safe Browsing API [developers.google.com...] and the website will pop an error when using those browsers no matter how you try to access it until it's removed from that list.
...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.
We've filed bug 823667 as a workaround for FF17 (if it ends up being necessary, for instance a major web property is impacted).
Wonder what is defined as a major web property?
