    It appears not to be available from Firefox's Add-ons site just yet. Version 2.75 is still being offered up. Hopefully soon.

    Later...

    I downloaded the xpi file from Dr.Web's Mozilla Linkchecker ftp folder, ran the xpi file and then selected Firefox as the program to run the xpi file.

    Nice little app. Is there any test page or any other safe way to verify its operation?

    I tried for a while to find some possible Malicious websites that may show a positive. The Dr.Web LinkChecker only detected something on one website and it was not Malware detected. It was a poor site rating. I noticed in some cases that the scan was being done on the Google link to the final website, not the final website.

    I played around with the right click context menu "Check with Dr. Webb" on some known malicious links and all of them came back "Infected". Nice little tool, as it takes all of my favorite extensions (AdBlock, Ghostery and Traffic Light) and combines most of their features in one app.:thumb:
