Does not block non-whitelisted domains! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Since advertisements can slip through, you can easily modify an iframe to navigate to any web content within a site by editing the href.

It is easy to bypass password protection as it has already been described by 'restore' in his review. I have immediatly removed it, and I strongly counter advise to install it.
Passwrod can be changed easily Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Please correct me, but after you configure everything and put a password, if you try open config tab the password screen appears, but if you press enter 3 times (blank password) goes directly to the change password screen, and allows you to put a new password without asking the old one. I can't use it with this flaw.
Almost good Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This does what I want for the most part EXCEPT it keeps losing my whitelist! I've been using it for about a year, now at v2.2, and it has happened about 4 times, and just happened again. It only happens once every few months, right about when the whitelist has about 40-50 patterns in it, and then BOOM! Most of them disappear, leaving only about 10 old ones.
[UPDATE] Thanks for the quick reply. That's actually a viable workaround. I didn't look into how you were getting around having to restart Firefox, but now seeing how the locations are stored, it makes sense. I'm adjusting my rating, and sending a donation. Thanks!
[UPDATE 2014-Sep-20] It's crashing Firefox 32.0.2 when I go to the preferences.
Sorry to hear that is happening. I've not been able to reproduce that. I'm not sure at this point if the problem lies with Mozilla FF or the plugin. You can make a copy of the patterns by typing about:config as the address. Search for "EasyWhitelist". You'll see all the settings related to the plugin. You should see a property that contains all the patterns. Copy and paste these to a text file. If they ever get lost, you can paste them back.
I'm going to add an "export" / "Import" option so settings can be more easily saved and later imported in the event settings are lost. Now...if I can just find the time.
Thanks for the feedback.

Almost perfect. Just one glaring problem I've found - users can restart in safe mode (without add-ons) and go to any site. If this feature were also password protected, it would be exactly what I need.

Vraiment pratique et simple à configurer, pour donner un accès restreint à un enfant. Seul les sites que je décide sont accessibles.

Please help! This program is everything I need, it really is perfect.
BUT, it's not working right. I have about 27 different sites to add to the whitelist, but many times when I add a site it doesn't stay there. Lots of the sites that I added two days ago aren't there, and sometimes it just forgets the site immediately. Is there a limit to the number of sites on the whitelist? What should I do?
Missing just a litle to be perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great add-on but could you add wildcard or joker char support ?For example I can't whitelist an entire domain (like http://*.gouv.fr) and it's very long to add all subsites. Thank you if you can change something...
Soooooo Close to perfect Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I have tried several different add-ons that promised to provide whitelist features only to be let down. Easy Whitelist is on of the best ones out there and works great with the exception of one bug. It is very easy to add site and the recording feature is great. It does a great job of locking the system down to prevent someone from changing the setting but this is where the bug lies. Once you lock the system down and release it into the wild, if a user attempts to access the Add-on or about:config panel and does not have the password, they do not have any option to get out of the loop. They cannot close the page or cancel out of the attempt. No matter what you do (hit cancel), the page keep telling them that they must enter a password. Enter the wrong password and the hint comes up. Enter wrong hint answer and it takes you back to enter the password.
If this was fixed this would be a perfect add-on.
I hope that future versions will address this issue and I can put this into use. It is sooooo close to perfect.
Whitelist 1.3 is better Rated 5 out of 5 stars
UPDATE -- Thanks for the bug fix. Reinstalled 2.0 is now working as it should.
Karl, Whitelist 1.3 worked beautiful. Not so 2.0. Is there a way we can revert back to 1.3? Where and how can we discuss bug issues?
Thanks for the feedback. If you find the updated version fixes your issues I'd appreciate an adjustment in the review score for the fixed version. I'll be posting the fixed version here to the add-on site very soon.
Exactly what it says on the tin Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is perfect, it does exactly what's needed! Very simple to use, the password feature is great (mine is "dosomework" for every time I get tempted to disable and browse).
Just need to make sure to add any sub-domains you need (ie. en.wikipedia.org for the english version) or https instead of http if you want the SSL version of a site.
Great, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Is there a way to whitelist an entire web domain? Example: I want my kids to be able to access anything on Wikipedia. If so, this might be the perfect application for our family.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1-signed).
Yes, just add a whitelist entry such as:
That will do it! All content beneath www.wikipedia.org will be allowed.
