Avoid using as of 2015 unless you like porn Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In early 2015, Public Fox started including "AdBeaver" adware to help generate revenue for it's developers. AdBeaver likes to show pop-up porn ads.

Sure, Public Fox prompts you if you want to install AdBeaver, but it's not a prompt during setup (it pops up randomly much later while browsing), it's wording is misleading, and most people blindly click "OK" anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It doesn't work properly when some of the options are checked. But I give 4/5 because that doesn't bother me, everything what I need works perfect and my pc is not messed up since I have to share it with a group of colleagues.

Protect your kids Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As I read a review for its URL blocker I decided to give it a go and see whether is good or not. I fell in love with this extension, I can set password and define which sites are denied and what my children can visit. There is too much inappropriate information for kids nowadays on the internet. If you want to protect their child minds you definitely will like this addon.

Great help Rated 5 out of 5 stars

At my work place there is a computer which is used by many people but I'm responsible for it. I've tried this addon and now it's easier for me. I've blocked all potentially dangerous sites also I've denied a few more things and now the mess is times less.

Some little issues Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension is a great idea - to have control on your browser access. It'd vote 5 out of 5 if everything was perfect but it's not, as every new development. I'm glad that important things such options, downloads, bookmarks, etc but when I tried to lock my history it didn't do it. Anyway I'm sure this will be fix shortly and you need to try it. I think you'll like it too.

Found it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Finally I've found what I was looking for. It does what it's supposed to do and also it is very convenient. You don't need to worry about your privacy and you can set your own rules for surfing, downloading, bookmarks, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It seems fine. I like that there are several options and you can decide which one to be active. It's easy to use with and simple enough.

Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've tried this addon and I am positive about it. I've installed it because I was looking for some protection. My computer isn't used only by me so each member of my family (especially the kids) could download and install whatever they want. Besides its great functionality I respect the URL blocker the most. By using it you can deny access to some inappropriate pages.

USELESS: Downloads Password Lock does not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Using Firefox v35 / v36 Beta
Public Fox v1.11.4

I have set password and enabled Downloads and Library Lock, and specified file extension. but when I right-click a file and click save link as, a password pops up but also the download window a second later. Also you could just cancel the password popup and go straight to download save as windows !

Test here> github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases

Looks like the only thing that developer cared to get right was adding adware....

Do Not Use Public Fox Rated 1 out of 5 stars

We've used Public Fox for years and were always pleased with how it could lock down Firefox without interfering with the functionality of the browser. With the latest version, however came the option to add AdBeaver, every time Firefox is opened which if the unsuspecting user clicks on forces them to see pornographic advertisements. Do not install this product.

Add more tools and I still can see some pages of my history Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Could you add a password to access the different profiles throught the command firefox.exe -p (Windows + R), please ? I really don't know why Mozilla didn't put an option for you to enable a password in your profiles =/.
The app will be better after that, with more options to keep your account safe xD.

If I select Menu and History, I still can access some pages of my last researches, you can also fix it, hidding this option or putting a password on Menu -> +Personalize.

Thanks you guys !

STILL BREAKABLE version (*** Public Fox 1.11.3 ***) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Public Fox Add On works fine till version 10 of Firefox for Puppy Linux.

Today, again, I updated Firefox (version 35)
To my surprise, Public Fox automatically updated as well,
but the error remains:
when the Popup ask for password,
I CAN CLICK ANOTHER TAB ( which is not possible in version 10 )
then I go back to the Popup, press scape key, or press the cancel button, or close the Popup and got unprotected the add-ons window.

I understand that if...
1. Password wrong or
2. ESC key pressed or
3. Cancel button clicked or
4. Public Fox Popup closed...

then Public Fox converts the active Tab in a "New Tab" Tab.

If user can change the active Tab,
PUBLIC FOX CLOSES THE WRONG TAB.
then the Add-Ons Tab remains open and now unprotected.

Since in this version
you can change the active Tab
while the Public Fox Popup is open,
then it's still a breakable version of Public Fox.

So I rollback to version 10 of Firefox with plenty plenty problems, but protected.

PLEASE FIX THIS BUG. YOU CAN DO IT. I BELIEVE IN YOU.

Push! Push! Push! Elektra

Than you !
