While we wait for staff to evaluate. A note on Website blocked due to a suspicious top level domain (TLD)

Non-standard TLD's (biz/cc/info/xyz/online and so on) are commonly used for malicious purposes.  Malwarebytes err on the side of caution to assure that we are protecting our users. If our users encounter a block, they report it (as you did), we test it, and if it is determined to be safe, we unblock it

Sometimes caches get in the way.  On rare occasions, you need to uninstall and reinstall Browser Guard.  That is rare though.  Behavior in Chrome should be the same as it is in Firefox.
