** Description changed:

- When downloading .chm/.epub/.pdf files from a given site, FF 50.1.0
- reports that there are malwares in them. This is probably wrong and
- seems to be only based on (wrong) suppositions form the origin URL...
+ When downloading .chm/.epub/.pdf files from a given site, FF 50.1.0 reports that there are malwares in them.
+ This is certainly wrong (clamscan reports no problem on the files...) and seems to be *only* based on *wrong suppositions* on the origin URL...
+ 
+ Such a blocking of downloaded files is erroneous.
+ 
+ Indeed, downloading from supposedly "illegal" sites (is a site that
+ proposes links to supposedly illegal stuff illegal in itself? Whoi are
+ you to decide it is illegal?) does not means you get "illegal" files
+ (how do you know I don't own the rights to get the file), nor that the
+ (supposedly "illegal") files are *always* infected by malware... Also,
+ malware target mostly (specific versions of) Windows OS/App, which I do
+ not use, so I REALLY DON'T CARE of what FF assumes of the risks I'm
+ taking. Please, do not make any stupid assumptions (like that I'm a
+ stupid Windows user) and let me do what *I* want on *my* machines!!!
