Google SafeSearch feature is not working with a Cisco PIX or ASA configuration, which is integrated directly to the Filtering Service on the Windows server.
When the firewall is configured to use either the URL-Truncate or CGI-Truncate command, the end portion of the URL, which includes the &safe=active parameter, is removed.
For instructions on setup for SafeSearch, see Search Filtering feature blocks explicit thumbnail images.
