Siteadvisor down?

Hi, just wondering if I am the only one having a grey siteadvisor icon in Firefox? I have seen the sticky that this is due to the servers being down but it has been going on for more than a day now and I start wondering if something is wrong at my end.

I switched to using OpenDNS yesterday and I suspect a bit that there is something going on there.

RE: Siteadvisor down?

They have had occasional server outages which would cause this. You also get a grey icon when the website you are viewing hasn't been reviewed yet.
Make sure that it is enabled under Browser Tools/Add-ons.

Thanks for the response. I checked and it was enabled. What is weird is that I visited the addon settings, they seemed fine, and exited the settings. Now everything seems to work again! Not sure what went on.

Maybe it just needed a little persuasion!:)

Alright after restarting the PC a couple of times, I found out the only way that SiteAdvisor can work is if I open the settings dialog and close it again. Not sure what that means?!

Make sure that you don't have anything competing with it such as browser phishing filters or IE's Content Advisor. (Tools/Internet Options/Content and Tools/Add-Ons)
