Search Advisor showing yellow question marks

For the past week or so, every time I restart my computer and search using Firefox or Edge, the Search Advisor icon is the yellow question mark. It refreshes every few seconds and remains the yellow question mark until some number of minutes, and eventually the icons change to green checkmarks.

This is sometimes half an hour or longer, especially when browsing Facebook. Why does it take so long for Search Advisor to work?


  • Hello,


    It depends on your connection how fast the search advisor is able to check those links.

    I would also check for any faulty extensions. Best to disable them all and see if there are any changes, if so simply enable them one by one.
