- by Firefox user 14114591, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5I use this addon to block annoying podcasts and other uploads from channels I usually like. It seems to work perfectly, including in the sub feed (I suspect the underlying requests rather than the page DOM are being filtered, but I haven't checked the source code). My only suggestions would be to add an option for tags, or to include a short "how-to" text on the options page itself without having to click through. Maybe even a quick Regex tutorial for newbies would be useful. Still, this addon gets the job done and causes no issues.
- by Firefox user 14069361, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5I first encountered BlockTube a month ago when its creator posted it on /r/firefox. It was then in beta and some of its functionality was limited to regular expressions—something that has since been much improved with a new UI. Now many of YouTube's annoyances can be fixed without hassle. Front page auto-generated playlists can be permanently removed through a checkbox and clickbait titles can be filtered by adding keywords.
BlockTube's “Block Video” and “Block Channel” features are so seamlessly integrated that I initially thought that they were added by Youtube themselves. Excellent!
