If using DNS based web filtering, this extension will improve the user experience for block pages when using HTTPS.
When using a web filtering product that also filters HTTPS but does not intercept the connections, the block page is generally the browser saying it cannot connect.
This extension resolves that issue for customers of DNS-based web filtering solutions by forwarding the user to a gateway hosted block page.
- Fixes an issue where the protection check method would cause a DNS query to be generated. We now use a different HTTP call that is less noisy.
- The extension icon colour will now be green when you are behind a filtered connection and red when you are not to give you a quick visual indicator.
- Adds a message handler so mytools.management is able to detect whether this extension is installed.
- Fixes an issue with infinite auto-retry on blocked pages.
