Safesearch/adblock understanding problem

Hey guys

I've problem with understanding how to enable SafeSearch. I'm using Luci 19.7 with Adblock 4.0.7.

I enabled SafeSearch. After enabling there's a new menu item "Limit SafeSearch".

Imo "Limit SafeSearch" don't has to be enabled if I would like to have SafeSearch.

But whatever I do ... Nothing happend. GoogleSearch is still GoogleSearch.

Thx in advance :slight_smile:

Please provide the output of /etc/init.d/adblock status and cat /etc/config/adblock - thanks.

While I was playing with the settings, I noticed that the report-interface can't be unspecific on start or restart. If U set it to unspecific and do the save&apply, adblock gets a reload and it works (unspecific). But eyerytime U start or restart adblock, it gets back to br-lan.

Now its is working. Everything is fine. I don't why. Maybe it took some time to apply.

Thanks for the update. Your config looks OK - most probably a browser/operating system caching issue.

Yes, also possible. True. It works. Thats ok for me.

The complexity of modern information technology systems often makes it difficult to find the cause.
