WSA green check marks won't work in HTTPS search results right now. Webroot team is working on it though. WSA will still protect you from malicious websites and malware. Green check marks are just for convenience. So no worries.:)
Roy is also right. Like when I used to have Bitdefender quick scan add-on in my FF, the green check marks wouldn't appear.
You can also make sure you haven't recently started using security and privacy add-ons like HTTPS Everywhere or HTTPS Finder. This would cause search results webpage to load into HTTPS. Check whether the setting 'Analyze search engine results and identify malicious website before visitation' is enabled in Web Threat Shield.
I appreciate your reply but I don't believe that is the problem. I have reinstalled Firefox in an effort to troubleshoot this issue and currently the only addon in Firefox is flash player. The only security software on this PC is WSA and Sandboxie and as you probably already know neither one of them install addons in Firefox but I still have no check marks in Firefox. In case anyone thinks Sandboxie is the culprit I have no check marks in Firefox whether I open it in Sandboxie or not.
I'm not using the default, I'm using http://www.google.com/. No offense intended but I wish I had a gun that was capable of killing animated avatars. Those things are extremely annoying and irritating when you are trying to concentrate on reading someones post.
Lets hope the New Web Threat Shield being introduced in the 2014 version can over come this.
However I do have the lock on my WSA with FF open (including sandboxie)
looks like its https Google that the tick boxes arent working on
Identity shield is still working though.
http://www.google.com works fine on FF 21.
And Bing search works fine on FF 21.
Well I better open a support ticket. The padlock is not showing. I think you are right. The latest version of Firefox is the prob. Maybe the green check marks are not compatible with the latest version. .
VERY ANNOYING, although it worries me a bit to disable ANY protection software.
This seems to be another of Avast's ways of advertizing by drawing attention to "what they are doing to protect us".
I just don't want it; IN MY FACE- ALL THE TIME !
