Hi JEMM. Thanks for taking the time to report this!
Thanks for your report, however this does not look like a "bug" (a problem in the program code) but instead like a support request (changing the settings). AVG seems to warn you of code on a website that you visited. This has nothing to do with Firefox specifically (you should get this warning with any other browser too) and hence there is nothing that Firefox developers can do.
