SAFE SEARCH

I know this was a problem a few weeks back, but it seems to be happening again. The green checks are not coming up on Google or Bing search.

I just opened up another page in the forums to check the "green Checks" posts, and it seems there has been no complaints since 9/25.

Is this localized to my computer (this is a new laptop and I am running windows 7 professional) or has there been other complaints that I have not seen?

Thank you!

I do believe my computer is making me look like I am fibbing! After I posted, I did 2 more searches, one under Google and the other under Bing. And when I refreshed the page under Bing, the green checks returned. So I tried Google and sure enough, they to came back.

This is somewhat annoying, is there a permanent cure for this?

Thank you

Hello moogy

This is happening because Google and Bing are always making changes to the way their searches work. Many people have said that refresing the site seems to make it work again.

Re: SAFE SEARCH

Are you perhaps using Firefox with the NoScript extension?

I just tried both Bing and Google and noticed that Bing was not showing checkmarks. Even a refresh didn't help. I then noticed that I had NoScript set to not allow scripts on Bing. After setting NoScript to allow scripts on Bing, the checkmarks automagically appeared. Setting NoScript back to blocking scripts on Bing immediately resulted in Safe Web checkmarks once again disappearing.

Apparently, allowing scripts are a necessary evil associated with using site vetting software... at least on some sites.
