Could not download siteadvisor firefox addon

When ever I try to download siteadvisor addon for firefox (ubuntu) from

 

https://www.siteadvisor.com/download/ff.html

 

I get a connection reset or timeout error! (note the https)

 

Further, when I manually try to download the addon-xpi from the following location (download url reported by firefox)

 

https://download.mcafee.com/products/sa/firefox/safe.xpi?cid=20209 (again note the https)

 

I get ssl_error_bad_cert_domain error, where firefox reports an invalid certificate with a sha1 fingerprint D4:58:81:CF:2E:9C:37:26:A9:B0:2A:7E:0B:8D:D2:D4:4E:CF:C7:0F.

 

Is there someother way to download siteadvisor addon for firefox SECURELY?

Or am I supposed to necessarily download a security product using http only (and not https) and expose myself to MITM ?

 

I remember this use to work sometime back, but now it doesn't! Is there something I am doing wrong?

Is there an alternative to download & install siteadvisor addon for firefox securely which I am not aware of? Kindly suggest & solve my problem.
