Which categories have you blocked; have you blocked searvh engine; can you give some more details about the error message/log message from traffic monitor and configuration of the proxy policy.

Do you get denied for all the websites; if yes, then there is a possibility that you have configured block web access and the webblocker server cannot be contacted by the firebox.

Please check and update.

Thank you.
