Why does that page single out the "anti-phishing" (Suspected Forgery)
service of FF3?

I maybe totally wrong on this (someone please correct me) but it seems
more like a privacy disclosure and less to do with
3rd-party-"breakage".  Specifically in this case some 3rd party (i.e.
Google) will be receiving information about the specific URL's you are
browsing (along with cookies, etc.). See:
