@BPry Not exactly. We have other websites in our Approved URL list that apparently use Google resources to allow the page to be displayed properly. For example the fake website www.mywebsite.com failed to load all the elements on the page and was pretty unusable, after using fiddlr, wiresharks etc we found that it was making calls out to Google for additional resources. Once we allowed those URLs through the filter, the website would load properly. Unfortunately, this had the side effect of allowing users to visit www.google.com and perform web searches, visiting google images etc. I was able to create Custom Threat policies to block the google browser based games but I can't seem to find much that would restrict them going to google images. One user was looking at DIY halloween costumes and their manager wants us to stop his people from doing all of that. Definitely not the easiest of situations, but unfortunately we are not in the position to tell the business NOT to use a particular website due to functionality issues.
