  • I am sorry, but this is pretty much useless. It goes through all the page metadata, where it is very common to find some combinations, such as "xxx". Eg. linkedin main page is not a porn site.
  • Selbst "kleine" Seiten (habe einfach "ruski vids" eingegeben, und da kamen dann irgendwelche zwielichtigen Pornoseiten aus Russland) werden erfolgreich blockiert, wirklich toll!
    Oh, selbst wenn man nach bspw. "youporn" googlet wird es sofort geblockt.
    Wenn man nach "Katja" sucht und auf Bilder geht auch, wirklich super, alles wird blockiert!
  • I use this to protect my children's sessions
  • Good
  • The option to disable access to addons is a bit difficult to understand, now that I understand I see how this is properly working and can be quite powerful
  • procurava por um add on que bloqueasse de verdade os sites pornográficos, esse funciona
  • it works, but you could add the option to create a user or password to enter your add-on and that it is not deactivated, or that for the add-on to be disabled ask for a confirmation password. thank you
    SIRVE, pero tu podrias agregarle la opción de crear un usuario o una contraseña para entrar en el complemento y que no lo desactiven, o que el complemento para que sea desactivado pida una clave de confirmación. gracias

  • Acceptable, but requires too many click to access blocked site list.
  • (Très bonne extension, je l'utilise depuis de nombreuses années mais depuis la dernière mise à jour (v9.0), à chaque démarrage de Firefox le message "Thank you for choosing FoxFilter!" apparait. Merci de désactiver ce message ou donner nous le moyen de le désactiver, c'est énervant à la longue)
    Résolu avec la v9.1 Merci

    (Very good extension, I use it for several years, but after the last update (v9.0), each time firefox start, the
    "Thank you for choosing FoxFilter!" appears. Please just stop that or give us the way to cancel this message.)
    Solved with v9.1 Thanks
  • Very important filter add-on for secure and safe viewing experience for kids.
    A must needed add-on for Firefox and Chrome.
  • ... endlich muß ich die mir verhaßte GMX-Startseite nicht mehr sehen, wenn ich mich aus einem meiner Email-accounts auslogge.
    Danke, FoxFilter!
  • This add-on also works pretty well to prevent spoilers. For example: I didn't have the chance to watch the latest MMA fight, Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm yet. So, I'm simply adding their names to the FoxFilter stop words and don't have to worry no more about spoilers while surfing the net.
  • The program is great and it works on all sites that I need it to. No hang ups . I rate it a 10.
  • Looking for an internet filter - this is the one! You can manage your whitelist and blacklist from the cloud and block both domains AND keywords! Forget OpenDNS - here I come, FoxFilter! Oh... and FoxFilter allows you to block all access to removing any addon, so that a user can't even remove FoxFilter!! Just a tip though - make sure the target user does not have administrative rights to the PC, otherwise they can simply reinstall firefox.
  • Filter seems to work fine, but the performance is significantly reduced while filter is active. -> Page load latency is higher
    Procon Latte loads faster.
  • is just the best among other parental add-ons i've tried so far.
  • Somewhere between a standalone plugin and a full-fledged distributed filtering suite is FoxFilter. The free version is nothing special, and can be disabled with a click. The "hosted" version is fairly well designed, without the bloat of a commercial Parental Control app.

    The only notable shortcomings are support for Firefox only (you'd need to disable or hamstring other browsers to be useful), and being just a little too complex for entry-level users. Still, for a small office looking for filtering that's minimally intrusive without costing a huge sum, this is a good deal.
  • I have found this program for a long time.I like it very much because It help me to control using the internet.I can't access inappropriate web.It's a good filter.I'm sure it would make me stop worrying about the internet.When My sister use the internet I can be a pleasure that My sister will not be able to access a malicious web.My father recommend this program for me.He just give a computer notebook to me.Then he say"If I know you use the Internet in a bad way,you will not use it anymore." I'm very afraid him.: ( Maybe I button in to that page by mistake.But now,This program make me relax from a warnings of my father.Anyway maybe I do not like it.because it makes me feel like not independent.Sometimes the dangerous website is One of the challenges that a teenager want to do it.Finally ,This program should be improved something such as publicity and make the difference with the other. ^ ^
  • The HeliOS Project is an Austin Texas based non profit that fixes broken or decommissioned computers then gives them to disadvantaged Central Texas kids. We know how important it is to keep kids safe on the Internet. Many of our kids are between the ages of 8 and 12, and some are latch-key kids, meaning they are home and alone before their parents arrive.

    It's not every child that goes looking for trouble on the Internet...unfortunately, trouble has no trouble finding them. That's why The HeliOS Project finds FoxFilter the perfect solution for unattended kids using the computer. What we appreciate more than anything is the ability to centrally update the "blocked" list and the settings from a remote machine. The Internet changes faster than the weather so new websites with innocent-sounding names can be a nightmare for a child to stumble onto. We can update our FoxFilter account quickly and remotely, saving us both time and money.

    FoxFilter is also installed on our classroom machines. Our brick and mortar facility has 12 computers open for daily use. Our staff cannot always monitor every machine for inappropriate behavior or surfing so FoxFilter has been invaluable for us.

    This is the tool parents and guardians need when they can not be there physically.
  • I paid the $9.99 to get the security features. But the "To allow access to this page, use the "Trust this Site" link below. " screen still shows up. Yes It requires the password to actually use the Trust button. But I want to not have this screen not show at all. Also the blocked site is shown for a split second before it is blocked.
  • What is it? Poor human nature? Why it's asking for registering on payment bases when it blocks sites.
    As we know, there is very few (5of100%) extentions showing direct demand for money based registration. Please close that content after blocking sites. I take my hat of only bec. you made really usufull tool for peope for parients
  • Overall it is a good filter. Only concern was that it found too many false positives, and doesn't have any white or black list (you create your own white list - which is a nice feature).
  • Good plugin. Could be excellent with some more granular controls; small alert window would be better placed at the bottom of the page as it disrupts the 'Remember password' bar. Otherwise, pretty strong filter; a must have if you have multiple platforms and need to use the same one, but need to exclude some machines.
  • A very good blocker, but had to unblocked non-harmful sites.
