Geogebra portable 280 - 281 for Linux is dangerous?

Hi;


I have been trying to download Geogebra 280 and now 281 portable but have been being blocked by Firefox.


Mozilla after ignoring my complaint for a bit, finally stated that they use Google's incredible, amazing, wonderful malware scan and that Geogebra has been declared an unsafe file to download and FF is correct to prevent me from harming myself and will continue to block it. This concern moved me to tears and then I asked Mozilla why they would use the scanner of their number one competitor and not develop their own or use a neutral one? There response was to just ignore me. I suspect they are blocking me now.


I can defeat their efforts to block the download but I think someone should set them straight. Can someone from Geogebra please get them to lift the ban?


Here is the message, this started with Geogebra 280 and did not exist before that.
