question?. does 'browsing protection' only work with Google &/or yahoo search engines?.
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:
Additionally the F-Secure Browsing protection checks for URL if the search engine is not supported.
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.
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.
I use the search field. I have never reailzed that when using the search field, FF addes that s there. Thank you for the tip.
Informative thread, it answered my question about FF 18.0.2 not showing the ratings on my searches, plus more pertinent information Thanks , kudos given.
