SquidGuard - cannot download blacklist from blacklist tab [Solved]
I already used PfSense in the past and I'm now looking to reinstall one for a school. (It was so nice :))
I was able to install everything (on laptop without screen, with vlan, with captive portal, squid proxy, …)
but I'm stuck on the SquidGuard install :s
when I click on download, it just show me a blank empty sqare and then directly refresh the page.
before clicking :
after clicking (during <1 sec) :
and then it comes back to the first screenshot, suggesting again to download/cancel/reset default…
...tested the link : it works
...tested from pfSense : internet is ok
...looked for errors in logs : I didn't find anything :(
...change the owner and permissions on DB folder (/var/db/squidGuard/) : still same behaviour...
...reinstalled the whole thing in virtualbox with almost same settings : exactly same issue
does anyone have the same issue ? is it due to a bug in last version ?
Here is the versions I got :
pfSense 2.3.2-RELEASE (i386)
built on Tue Jul 19 13:09:39 CDT 2016
New packages to be INSTALLED:
pfSense-pkg-squidGuard: 1.14_3 [pfSense]
squidGuard: 1.4_15 [pfSense]
db5: 5.3.28_4 [pfSense]
don't hesitate to suggest your idea :)
I spent the whole day on this…
here are some updates on my searches
I tried to redo the whole config with pfSense version 2.0 ==> package not available (I believe it's because the version is too old). I so tryed to upgrade it ==> not possible neither… (I believe it's also due to very old version.
I tried to redo the whole config with pfSense version 2.3(.0) ==> exactly same issue.
(able to download and configure package, then nothing after clicking on download...)
Please help if you have any ideas, I really want to use this powerfull system that I knew :D

I had the same issue, and when i searched in the PACKAGES area here, I found that others with this problem had discovered that it was related to the browser they were using. It turns out that Firefox (which I use) would have this issue, but IE and EDGE don't. EDGE and IE resolved it for me so I use those instead of Firefox for pfSense webgui.
Thank you so much Tzvia !!! :-*
It was indeed the cause ! Stupid Firefox !
I was thinking FF was fully supported with pfSense webconsole. All others features seem to be alright…
I waste so many hours for this simple thing ...
Thanks thanks thanks :D
