Click the link while using Firefox of course, otherwise it will install the IE version by default.

Is firefox your default browser..

Or this for a direct link to the extension

You may need to add mcafee to your list of allowed installation sites.

I use both IE and Firefox and have the appropriate SiteAdvisor version installed for both browsers.

In IE it is displayed top right and in Firefox bottom right.

i have done everything you have said including the direct link and it still isnt coming up but thanks to everyone for the advice

Sorry, the direct link won't work unless you download /then/ drag the .xpi into Firefox. Are you using the latest version of FF? (2.0) click here

I have just installed it from my link above,you may get a warning directly underneath your browser (Firefox) to allow the download..add this to the allow list.
Then agree to the terms and conditions,restart Firefox.
The site advisor now sits at the bottom right of my screen as Stuartli has pointed out.
