- by KirkH420, 7 months 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, a year 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.Hey, 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, a year 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-onHey, 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, a year 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.^^ 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, 2 years 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, 3 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.
