a website is showing the webroot orange button in firefox - I have been in touch with the company and they say it is safe and sent me a checksheet which includes all the big names but not webroot. Am I safe to use it? Is there any way of checking?

Hi, thanks so much for your swift reply. The website is algeriancoffeestores.com
It would be awesome if you had a minute to check it out for me. x

This is why and it's safe or it would be Red and blocked; but you still can ask Webroot BrightCloud if they will change it? https://www.brightcloud.com/tools/change-request.php

So what you are saying TripleHelix, is that even with a Suspicious rating from the BrightCloud Filtering Extension, it is still safe to visit the site?
