    Default Forcefiled alert for youtube

    When I went to a video on youtube.com tonight (one that I have viewed many times over the last 2-3 years), FF gave a yellow alert for "www.youtube.com" and said to use caution when downloading, etc. and that the warning was based on the age of the website (registered 2/15/05) and the strength of its security certificate and that it's listed on some spamblocker listings. After browsing to other sites for a while, I went back to the same youtube site and no longer got the warning. What do you think happened?

    Thanks for the link. I'm familiar with how the warning works. This site registration youtube.com is 5 years old. My main question was why it didn't give the yellow alert a few minutes later. i.e., it alerted when I viewed the site yesterday (although I have viewed it almost daily for months). After surfing for a few minutes, I returned to the site, and it no longer alerted. That is what I found bizarre--that Forcefield had somehow changed its mind in a few minutes. Likewise today, the site gives no yellow alert. I was curious if anyone had seen that before. I would think that if a site is suspicious, it would be reproducible.
