Unrelated question; why 2 vdoms for this scenario? 


Back to your problem; check the (forward) logs. Which rule is the browsing traffic hitting? Does this rule have the correct web-filter policy?  

What is the categorisation of the visited site in log?

Turn all logging on at least untill you solve this issue.
