    Default Browser security on ZA Extreme 10

    I just installed the new ZA Extreme v10 and set both Web Security and Browser Virtualization to ON. The ZA toolbar appears in both Firefox and IE, but I don't seem to get that "glowing border" around my browser window that I used to get.

    Here's my setup: WinXP SP3, ZA Extreme v10, and I tried the test on both Firefox v4 and IE v8.

    I contacted ZA tech support and they said they'd "look into it". Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would suggest you don't use it all the time.

    Turn private browser off in the UI.

    Then only use it selectively from the browser, by clicking on the Private Browser button in the ZA security toolbar in your browser.

    That will open a windoww and will tell you in the toolbar that this windo is a private browser.

    You may or may not see the glow. But if the message appear in the toolbar its a private browser window then you know its protected instead of depending on a glow.

    Sorry no suggestions how to get the glow to work. Its just a cosmetic thing.

    It's not a cosmetic thing, it does not work.

    Sorry if you don't see the "Glow Effect" ,
    like the Moderator stated before..

    It is a Cosmetic thing..

    You may or may not see the glow. But if the message appear in the toolbar its a private browser window then you know its protected instead of depending on a glow.

    The "Glow Effect" has nothing to do with the Protection Forcefield provides..

    Its considered a cosmetic issue by Dev because the glow has always had issues appearing consistently since the begining of this feature. It was determined the reason why it does not appear all the time is its a graphics issues and is different for every system out there. Its just an impossible thing to fix for everyone.

    We actually get more complaints from users because they don't want the glow at all.

    Thats why you look for the words in the toolbar in the browser session to verify its a protected browser.
