- by Firefox user 16413757, 4 days agoRated 1 out of 5It's not possible to block URLs from an add-on. If you think that it can be done, you're mistaken and what you're seeing is a redirect to an internal page. Some of these add-ons supply a blank page, some display a configuration page... but they all display some sort of page. Blocking a URL would stop the browser from loading anything at all. Which is what is being asked when a person is asking for a site to be blocked. A request to a URL behind one of these fake-blockers will still be seen by the server that the end user wished to block. The User's IP (or VPN IP) will still be logged on the host server.
- by yukupalm, 8 months agoRated 3 out of 5In theory I love it. In practice it's blocking pages that it shouldn't, although I'm in Blacklist and not in Whitelist mode. Some of these pages I need for work. If I need to turn it of to be able to work, it's unusable for me.
Developer responseposted 8 months agoHey, thanks for your feedback! It would be helpful if you can open an issue on the github repository with steps to reproduce the same behavior => https://github.com/AXeL-dev/distract-me-not/issues
- by reviewer, 9 months agoRated 5 out of 5Great add-on! The only thing missing for me is an option to disable the blocker for a specific amount of minutes (e.g. 5 min, 10 min)
I have the habit to look up something on wikipedia for my studies and then losing myself in various articles, so a usage-timer would be a helpful extension to this add-on
Developer responseposted 9 months agoHey, thanks for your rating! For your request, i guess that you can do that from the unblock interface (but you need to set a password first) see the following screenshot => https://github.com/AXeL-dev/distract-me-not/blob/master/screenshots/unblock.png?raw=true
- by Ishidres, 10 months agoRated 4 out of 5Edit: Response at the developer: Thanks for your prompt response and help. I updated my review and will probably downgrade to the previous extension.
Developer responseposted 10 months ago^^ this wasn't a reason to give the extension a bad note :/, i removed the overwrite option because i thought it wasn't really interesting, especially that the overlay cannot be injected before the site starts loading, however this behavior can be restored & set as optional, for the whitelist issue it might be a bug, so if you can open 2 separate issues for that on the github repository (https://github.com/AXeL-dev/distract-me-not/issues) i would be thankful & happy to help on finding a fix, otherwise you can revert to any previous version from the link below (before doing a revert please export your blacklist & whitelist on the new version, so you can reimport them on the old one): https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/distract-me-not/versions/
- by maks030707, a year agoRated 5 out of 5works just fine, blocks any url you want. its also completely free, great alternative to some other paid website blockers.
one thing id love to see is a schedule option, for example "turns off at 7pm, turns back on at 9am"
- by Michael Große, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5I would love to see an option to automatically enable that block during certain times of the day. e.g. from 8 in the evening to 8 in the morning, so Facebook and YouTube won't mess with my sleep.
