Hello @Kasperov

Update from Kaspersky experts:

"This is a known issue; it is being investigated. The workaround is to disable 'Open links in new tab' in the Edge browser."

When the issue has been fixed we'll update your topic again. 

Thank you🙏

I don't see green check mark in front of search results of Microsoft Edge anymore. Is anything wrong? URL Advisor is on in settings & it works fine with Chrome.

Hello @Kasperov

Finally, an update from the escalation team:

quote

  1. "The issue persists only in one browser and is related to the URL-advisor feature, which is the part of Web Antivirus component. This is not a critical issue.
  2. 2021 MR9 was released recently (technical release). So, most of the customers will be upgraded to 2021 MR7, 8, 9 versions by TFU (Total force upgrade) The rest can use 2021 MR3 - but this bug will not be fixed in the 2021 MR3 version."

end-quote

We had to remind them the issue was only ever reported for one browser, that browser being Edge😣

We also took issue with their perspective that the URL advisor feature, an integral component of Kaspersky's Web Antivirus, was not regarded as critical - sure would like to know what Mr. Kaspersky thinks of their opinion🙄

In a nutshell @Kasperov, they're saying the issue will be fully fixed in MR9, anyone using MR3, v21.3, go fish. 

Thank you🙏

HI @Flood and Flood's wife & @Berny

The problem was with Microsoft Edge & Bing, now I see if I search "today in history" in Edge except first 2 links (which supposed to be safe?!) the rest of the links HAS green check marks next to them, both the same with "open links in new tab" on & off which was a temporary work around months ago. I have 21.3.10.391 (j), don't know about MR9, seems to be next generation, right? The Google Chrome never had any issues & is ok.

Thanks

  8. When searching different words, I see that some links haven't any mark next to them.
  9. Obviously, they believe it doesn't worth to correct this for v.21.3.

Hello @Kasperov

Thank you for posting back! So sorry for the delay responding, been a bit busy dealing with our annoying little community bot-stalker😒

  1. Correct.
  2. The first 2 are not technically links, if you expand them you'll see the difference. 
  3. Correct.
  4. Correct. 
  5. You do, that's MR3. v21.3. 
  6. Correct, 2021 MR7, 8, 9 is Kaspersky's new generation software. 
  7. Correct. 
  8. Correct. Kaspersky has decided this is "not a critical issue", as we shared in their quoted response 02/02/23, 12PM. 
  9. Correct again, the issue was reported under 21.3; they stuffed around for months under 21.3 & claimed it was fixed, under 21.3; they told us it was fixed under 21.3, they made us test their fix under 21.3; it wasn't fixed; in the end it appeared it was obviously all too hard as they sent the following email:

As we said: 

The *issue* was only ever reported for one browser, that browser being Edge, we don't know what they worked on for the many months that it took - it doesn't surprise us they thought it was fixed using chrome/edge, 'cause that was never broken😂

When they can't fix something, they frequently put it in the "not a critical issue." basket (ioo). 

As they've said above:

"MR9, technical release has the fix & the commercial release (TFU) will have the fix; the majority of Kaspersky subscribers with 2021 MR7, 8, 9 will get the fix via a total- force-upgrade", that means, the update will be force updated whether the subscriber wants it or not at that point in time. When they say: "The rest can use 2021 MR3 - but this bug will not be fixed in the 2021 MR3 version."; "the rest" means all Kaspersky subscribers using v21.3 - the version you are using @Kasperov; as v21.3 will remain in circulation for another 12 months - at least (according to @Igor Kurzin), (ioo) it's a bit rude of Kaspersky to decide that 21.3 subscribers can "go fish". 

Thank you🙏
