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&gro...

 

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:

Cheers,



Best Regards

-Ben

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.

 

 

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.
