Blocks most ads.

Much lighter on memory usage than Adblock Plus.

Awesome work. However it does not block all ads- e.g. ads in search engines (like startpage), facebook ads are still there.

Could you create bigger block list?

New "allow/allow for this session" feature is great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

BH has a new feature that lets you "allow" a blocked site from now on or "allow for this session." Fantastic--a very welcome feature! (it will probably get us users to stop complaining about not having an ability to add custom exceptions :)) I saw the proof of how well this light addon works when it totally got rid of the trashy video ads on a sharing site I frequent. I never bother with the other blocker addons anymore.

OH my gosh! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I been having a issue with something hooked on my browser and Bluhell Firewall has been blocking it for me. I can tell when I have turned it off and back on. I really love that option due to the fact that it can block somethings I need to do. Like add product to a website I have my stuff on. But other than that.. I love it!

Seems to work fine mostly. Wish it had a white list.
nbcnews.com does not work until you turn off bluhell.

If you don't want Adblock, try Bluhell Firewall. Thanks.

Blocks most ads Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension! I would have given it a 5-star rating if it blocked ads in Google Search and Gmail, along with having an option to whitelist sites.

What's the 'enabled' status indicator—icon blue or black? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Seems like a solid idea for an add-on, but... what's the 'enabled' status indicator—icon blue or black?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.0.1-signed). 

Blue is enabled.

Simple, lightweight, but on some pages it can block the wrong things Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I installed this addon and disabled adblock plus, and I generally like what I'm experiencing. The browser feels more responsive, and the firefox memory usage just got cut in half. I also like the simplicity of the addon.

However as some users reported, it can block some genuine content. For example, some of the pages on pcmag.com (features, opinions etc.) now don't display the main content.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.0.1-signed). 

Thanks for your feedback, we have just fixed that pcmag.com issue for the next version.

very good but could you please.... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works very well--quick, easy, and effective. I don't remember any ads since using Bluhell. Thank you.

But I have 2 problems. First, please make the icon label say if it is on or off, instead of having both give the add-on name and version. I can't see the little icons that well, and there is little difference between the blue and the black ones, so if I click on it accidentally, I don't know if it's on or off. It seems to be red in your images, but not on my browser, so the supplied images don't answer the question.

I'd really love a whitelist, even a short one of 5-10 sites. I've opened the same safe site dozens of times since using Bluhell, and it always blocks it initially. I open a bunch of links to it and go off for a brief break, pleased that I'll be able to shop when I return, and they're all blocked when I return. Gets tiresome. But I will go on using Bluhell, it's too good to give up on. I just hope for whitelist capabilitity. I don't mind having to add things to it myself: I'm not saying you need to create a list of good sites, just let the users customize our own lists, even if they're short. Although longer would be better.

Hi, first of all thanks for your review, you have some good points there.

I can understand your concern with the icon. In fact, i made the icon's eyes intentionally turn from white to black to make it more visible when it's disabled because as you said there won't be much difference from blue to black for some users on their monitor. Also, If you are using Australis you can make the icon bigger by moving it to the Panel area, but in any case i'll make the enabled/disabled status text show up in the tooltip for the next version, no problem.

As for a whitelist, there doesn't exists the concept of "short list" - it'll slow down the extension regardless. However, it seems you're talking about the "active protection" (ie, the "Site Blocked!" warning) rather than a whitelist for blocked content, which is a different matter. That shouldn't slow down the extension since it's a separated component.

Regards.

Edit: I've just finished implementing both features for the next 2.3.0 version, but i'll wait for another user to provide details on his issues on some news site before releasing this version (until weekend, though)

Just perfect. forget adblock lol.

I'm getting whiplash here! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow! This add-on has increased my speed tremendously. It's like when you first load the browser after installing a new OS. This is fantastic, Diego!

However, like others, I would like the option to whitelist sites.

Excellent ! Except for some sites with incorporated advertisements : the home page doesn't appear...

Seems to work well Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It manages to block youtube video ads, and the few sites I've tested don't have any ads on.

One thing this addon needs is the ability to whitelist sites, like ABP has. I don't like using adblock on sites like webcomics or imgur, who rely at least partially on ads for support
