what is a web filter and why is it prevetning me from using firefox?

Posted

Firefox allows me to search on google but as soon as i click the next link/to go on the page i want is doesnt work. Instead it talks about a web filter saying that the page i tried to visit could not be checked by web filter. This also happens when i use internet explorer. How do i fix this?

A web filter can be a piece of software installed on your computer, or on a network you are connected to that checks the content of the sites you are trying to visit. Talk to the owner of the network you are trying use, or the owner of the computer.

It's also possible you have malware, try scanning for malware with the directions at Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware
