"Threat blocked" error in AVG Antivirus using Firefox

Question: 

I'm getting a very strange AVG error every time I'm trying to open a new Web page saying Threat was blocked. File name: toolbarqueries.google.com/tbr?...

I can't get rid of this error. I ran system virus scans and updated AVG to the newest version but the error won't go away. What's wrong here? I'm using Firefox 16.0.1.

Answer: 

If you're using AVG Antivirus and Firefox and you're getting the "Threat Blocked" error then you're probably using the SearchStatus Extension. SearchStatus is known to be causing this problem.

Simply disable the SearchStatus Extension in Firefox and the problem should go away.
