The AVG security suite includes a Firefox add-on called "Safe Search." When active, Safe Search scans your search results from engines like Google, Yahoo! and Bing, and indicates next to each result whether AVG considers the linked-to website to be malware free. If AVG Safe Search conflicts with your other Firefox add-ons, or if you do not want it for some other reason, you can easily remove it.
