Blacklisted domain ( is not blocked from Firefox version 22.

When using Firefox version 22 and you add ( to blacklist in SWG UI, the site does not get blocked.


Firefox redirects the site to an HTTPS site.  When SWG is in Inline Blocking mode only the SWG cannot inspect HTTPS traffic therefore the site will not get blocked.  SWG is working as design.  HTTPS traffic can only be inspected when in Inline+Proxy blocking mode or Proxy blocking mode and SSL Deep Inspection is enable.  See Solution for workaround.



  1. Log into the GUI for SWG.
  2. Set the operating mode to be in Inline+Proxy blocking or Proxy blocking.

    Under Administration> Configuration> Operating Mode
  3. Enable Proxy (See SWG Implementation Guide for detail on Page 79 - 80.)
  4. Enable SSL Deep Inspection (See SWG Implementation Guide for detail on Page 81 - 85 .)

    Note: Link listed below for 5.2 Implementation Guide
  5. Configure a Policy for SSL Deep Inspection. (See SWG Implementation Guide for detail on Page 105 - 106.)
