I am getting this message on my MacBook when trying to access a new web page. I contacted virgin media and they say they cannot help. Apple also said that I needed to contact firefox. I can do searches in safari successfully it is only through firefox.

I can't find anything about "Virus Safe." Is this something you installed?

If you use Virgin Media Web Safe the following sites are supposed to be blocked :

Websites with viruses and sites with malicious or unsuitable content (including : pornography, hate, crime, drugs, violence, hacking, self-harm and suicide)

You could always change the settings

Thank you for your reply. The problem is any site I search for is being blocked. Including sites that are safe like the BBC or government websites.

Thank you for the additional information.

Just to make sure : this is Virgin Media (Virus Safe) doing the blocking, and yet they say they can't help you - even though they say to let them know if you think that the sites they are blocking shouldn't be blocked  ?

Have you tried changing the settings, like I suggested  ?

(Virgin Media also suggests to change the settings ..... )

If changing the settings doesn't make a difference and Virgin Media is unwilling to cooperate, maybe it's time to say "Goodbye'" to VM  ?

I agree with Happy.
