    Hello, RMc-Canada,


    Browing Protection is officially supported on the following web-browser:

    - Internet Explorer 7 & 8 (Windows XP) and Internet Explorer 8 & 9 (Windows Vista & Windows 7, 32-bit and 64-bit), Internet Explorer 10 (Windows 8, 32-bit and 64-bit)
    - Mozilla Firefox, two latest major versions
    - Google Chrome, two latest major versions


    As mentionned in the FAQ of IS2013:



    And Safety ratings are available on the following search sites:
    • Google
    • MSN Live
    • Yahoo


    However Browsing Protection might work with other browsers or search sites.


    For more information on that component please refer to the manual also:

    Hi RMc-Canada,


    Additionally the F-Secure Browsing protection checks for URL if the search engine is not supported.


    Best regards,

    TY both for your replies.



    I use 'internet explorer' with the 'ixquick' search engine.



    I've yet to see any 'color marks' etc.? so I assumed its probably ixquick.



    As long as malicious sites get blocked when need be is all I care.  Smiley Wink

    I have had FSIS 2013 installed since early November, but I still haven't seen the Online Safety classification symbols appear on Google searches in Firefox. They do appear in IE, just not in Firefox. Currently, I have FF 17.0.1 installed, and generally I have the latest installed pretty soon after publication.


    Before posting I checked Knowledge Base, manual, this discussion group and found no clue.
