Firefox subscribes to Google's Safe Surfing function and will tell you if the site is known to be a problem.  Of course... that can't tell you if it just got infected today.  Avast anti-virus does a pretty good job if the malware is known to them.  But once again, if it is 'brand new', no one can tell you about it.
