Mozilla doesn't create plugins for Firefox, and most plugins aren't open source, so the code isn't readily available for viewing. If you could be more specific as to which "anti-phishing plugin" you are referring to someone here might have a better answer.

Mozilla Developer Network documentation is here:
Is that what you are looking for?

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

(If this plugin is an extension, you can certainly examine it code, even if it may not be "source code" per say.)

First check I would make is if the displayed text for the link includes one URL but the actual link code goes to a different link.
