Starting yesterday, I noticed that Search Advisor is again functional in the Mozilla Firefox browser! I used Firefox 106.0.1. Today Firefox has been updated to version 106.0.2 and Serch Advisor is still functional!

 Good job Bitdefender!

Congratulations!

    I noticed that one, too. At last, we have a functional search advisor. 😊 Good job, Bitdefender team. 😊

    In case it does not work, please install the Bitdefender Traffic Light extension

    The green icon will be present

    Hello.

    I did nothing specific for the Search Advisor to start working again.

    It simply started to work by itself, without me doing anything.

    Regards.

  • I understand @Gjoksi,

    For me, it doesn't work 😢

    Is it some extension?

    This is my Mozilla Firefox version.

    And the extensions I have installed are:


  • Maybe @Alexandru_BD, knows something we don't know because there may be other users with the same problem.

  • Hi @Gjoksi,

    When performing an occasional Google search I came across it working, see:


    So, nothing more needed to be done 😉

    @Alexandru_BD I apologize for quoting you in this thread, but at the time I did, it wasn't working.

    Thank you all!

    Well, i told it will start working by itself, without you doing anything.

    I'm glad it works for you.

    Kind regards.

  • If everyone is happy, it's all good 😄👍️

  • Does it only work with Google and Bing? I use none of them just Brave search or DuckDuckGo. Still, I like taking chances. Some websites you can preview the Bitdefender rising. I click upon the link and move my eyes up to the traffic light and, then, down to watch Bitdefender rising just to see it's true. And I'm used to avoiding Firefox since it crashes too much. So, I can't see the verified icon alogside the URL.

    Hello,


    Unfortunately, the Search Advisor feature doesn't support neither the Brave search / browser, nor DuckDuckGo.

  • Hello @Synth Cypher,

    Search Advisor rates the search results from four major web search engines: Google, Bing, Baidu and Yahoo, to warn against dangerous web pages before you access them.
