    Hi everybody
    I am using opendns without any problem after I flash my router with ddwrt firmware. I added the both dns numbers and downloaded the opendns application. After a long time of use, today I saw that the short cut does not works anymore, but when I select the level of security for example to block gambling its works. The last I did was install a new antivirus called F-Secure, after that I am not touch any thing else.

    I suggest you open a support ticket.

    You may want to check F-Secure's settings. Check also your browser settings.

    To get OpenDNS shortcuts to work depends almost on the browser configuration for the default search engine. Try the support article, which is about your browser:

    Currently, shortcuts may not work with the Firefox web browser. We are aware of this issue and are investigating. In the meantime, you can use the following instructions as a work-around:

    1) In the address bar enter "about:config"
    2) If it appears, click the "I'll be careful, I promise" button
    3) In the textbox next to "Filter:" enter "keyword.url"
    4) Double click the "keyword.url" preference
    5) In the popup dialog, replace the highlighted text with:
    6) Click the "OK" button
    7) Close the tab
    8) Restart the web browser
