    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:

    http://www.f-secure.com/en/c/document_library/get_file?uuid=828b62b9-95ac-4ffa-803b-16639cab7560&groupId=20893

     

    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,

    Gary

  • 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.

    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.

  • maybe in Firefox you use https:// ('secure connection')?
