** 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 certainly wrong (clamscan reports no problem on the files...) and seems to be *only* based on *wrong suppositions* on the origin URL...
+ This is *certainly* wrong (no antivirus detects them as problematic(*)) 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!!!
+ (*) Local clamscan reports no problem on the files... Nor virustotal:
