We test the anisotropy in the Finslerian cosmological model with the X-ray and ultraviolet (UV) fluxes of quasars. The 2015 and 2020 compilations of quasars are used in the cosmological constraints. We find that the dipole direction given by the 2015 quasar compilation is not far away from the one provided by the Pantheon sample and the angular differences are around . The Pantheon sample is combined with quasars as the “standardized candles” to test the cosmic anisotropy. The results from two combined datasets are consistent. They show that the dipole anisotropy is weak in the Finslerian cosmological model. We investigate the Hubble constant in the Finslerian cosmological model. Though the central value of from the combination of six gravitationally lensed quasars, Pantheon sample, and 2020 quasar compilation decreases a little bit, it is consistent with the result from six gravitationally lensed quasars within statistical uncertainties.
