McAfee Site Advisor blocs Blogger banner (until permission granted to show it again)

I encountered a glitch yesterday with the Blogger status line that appears on the top of any blog (it has the Share, Next Blog, and Abuse buttons).  In Chrome, it disappeared (leaving a blank space), and in Firefox, McAfee warned me that it was being blocked.  When I checked OK, allow it, the banner came back in all browsers. (Safari is still the fastest, even in a pc windows environment.) This happens once on each Windows machine that has McAfee Site Advisor.

I guess this is a “false positive” from McAfee.

Chrome recently added the capacity to use McAfee Site Advisor to block sites.
