- by RobotUnderscore, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Normally anyone would go download LeechBlocker but you can only use that for certain time frames and not enable/disable it at will like this add-on. Works better for my workflow and I have had no issues so far. Great extension
- by Firefox user 12758181, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Blocks websites very effectively. I mainly use it to stop myself from binge watching YouTube videos. I have an endless supply of procrastination, and I'll usually find myself wandering into YouTube land if a web page has an embedded video. I have the app redirect me to a more helpful website, which happens to be Khan Academy right now. This little boost in focus has significantly reduced my wasted hours online. I use Chrome only to watch YouTube now, which works out well for me.
One note, you can't add blocked sites in the preferences of the app. You must right-click the page and select 'Block This Domain' in the drop down menu. Then you can go to preferences and redirect to another site instead of simply blocking the domain.
- by Hobson, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I go to far too many pointless websites. This add-on means if I try to visit them, I can't. Simple as that. It does what it says on the tin; blocks websites. One left-click anywhere on the displayed webpage and a click on the option to "Block this website", and it is done. Simples. You can redirect to a specified URL, but I've just left it my home page, which I think is the default setting.
It's not a net nanny type ad-on, more of a "Get your work done" kind of thing. Just what I needed. Thanks Allen.
