As you stated. The bug is causing some issues on the menu options page.
Options menu doesn't work. Add on is practically useless at its current state. FF 57
I am sorry about that; it is a known bug in FF56/57 that has been addressed in 58: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1385548
I am currently working on a fix for it, but I have no timeline at present: https://github.com/kainsavage/HistoryBlock/issues/8
This works in Firefox Quantum! :)
Just go to the webpage you want to have forgotten and open the context menu anywhere on the webpage.
Then hit the button "History Block" and block this site --> Done
Hey, I'm thankfull for your efforts but it doesn't seem to work on Firefox Quantum 57.0 (64 bits)
Nothing happens while pressing the button "Clear Blacklist", "Remove Domain", "Add Domain" and "Import".
Tried to clean history and reboot. No luck.
It worked! I'm using this to ignore google.com/search, as seeing my search history as google result page urls is annoying.
Great add-on to exclude some sites from history.
Seemed having stopped working, but Kains (the developers) hint was helpful to re-activate my legacy blacklist https://github.com/kainsavage/HistoryBlock/tree/v2.1.0#migrating-legacy-blacklist
Thanks for the positive review, and I'm glad to hear you were able to migrate successfully!
Dont work! After update FF
Sorry about HB not working after the update. Likely, you are going from 1.x to 2.0.0, right? The way that addons store data has changed significantly since the legacy version, and as such upgrading does cause the blacklist to get forgotten. It CAN be recovered if you follow the instructions from https://github.com/kainsavage/HistoryBlock/tree/v2.1.0#migrating-legacy-blacklist
Please let me know if I am misunderstanding and file a bug report with as much detail as possible on Github.
Find the extension very useful but preferences panel no longer popups since the extension was upgraded to reflect "Firefox add-on technology modernisation"
blocks unwanted history
Good and unique add-on.
I understand why viewing of blacklist is disabled, but please add function to unblacklist all.
Version 2.0.0 has this feature ^_^
Great! For the Future: hoping for a version compatible to multiprocess FF (e10s)...
Doesn't work at all for me.
An add-on that is constricting. Could be improved by letting the user freely edit the list of Blocked sites, password protecting the same. Also, a toolbar button should be optional.
last update 2011. so R.I.P. I guess... Mozilla should have added something like this instead of creating all the nonsence bloat that they keep adding these days...
Excellent add-on, but really need to turn off or drop the "block this" button... I mean, I close the tab, someone comes in, we start using the computer and he/she sees the block this button and ask what is it... kinda "raises some flags" I think.
It would very helpful to be able to see the black-listed sites. In a way, this partially defeats the purpose of hiding where you go. Perhaps the feature could be password protected?
Great! a must-have
Great, thank you.
Great application. However i was wondering if a mode could be added that blocks websites from history, but keeps their cookies?
I'm really missing some options window, where I can see / manage all blocked domains. Maybe there could also be an option to show / hide the "Block this!" entry. If needed, the list could be protected by password, so not everyone can see or change.
It seems the addon get confused for some scenarios:
1) I have blocked "mail.google.com" by accessing Gmail and using the "Block This!" context menu option. That alone works great.
2) Apparently, other *.google.com domais also got blocked. Tested with translate.google.com and docs.google.com. They don't show on Recently Closed Tabs nor History.
Also, I have tested this scneario with others sub-domains (a.xpto.com, b.xpto.com) with same results.
I don't know why, but it seems the extension somehow add two hash entries when you add only one URL. Ex. when I block mail.google.com (and only that one) I could see two entries on "extensions.historyblock.stringpref":
baea954b95731c68ae6e45bd1e252eb4560cdc45 - hash for google.com
da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709 - hash for "empty string"
So, I cleaned that registry, went to www.fileformat.info/tool/hash.htm, calculated the SHA-1 hash from mail.google.com and entered that value (1fe099df5f46e4c3c7e8ff6d5a72f695a06acad4) on the registry.
Apparently is working great now.
Forget the hassle of "Private Browsing Mode" hiding your non-private tabs when you turn it on. Most of the time, HistoryBlock is even better than Chrome's Incognito Window.
All it takes is just take a few minutes, once, to play around with your AwesomeBar, find all the sites that might leave incriminating traces, and then you can sit back and browse without worrying about whether you remembered to switch to Private.
HistoryBlock is "always use private browsing mode" on a per-site basis, in effect if not in implementation. It's not perfect yet (It won't prevent dirty search keywords from showing up in the form field memory and it won't tell Flash that you're in private mode) but it's very close.
Good idea, but we need to be able to SEE the black and whitelists. Else how can we remember which sites we have blocked?
Nice, but a bit too strong for my usage, and without return. I've blacklisted sites like google that fill my history, but it filter out the cookies too... same for gmail, and other mails.
maybe you could put a mode where there is trace of the filtered_out sites, and especially cookies.
another mode could be the "training mode" where you whitelist all sites used during it is active...
I'll also add another demand : to have a "unblock this" button if a site is blocked (or anyway). also have a block all domain (if navigation on maps.google.com, would block or unblock all google.com)
last is blocking IP ranges...
so here is my proposal summarized :
- have a "learning mode" to unblock all that you do when the mode is active
- have a "trace mode" that list history and cookies blocked
- have a unblock-this menu/button
- have a "unblock/block all domain" to block/unblock base domain (google.com instead of just maps.google.com)
- have IP grange blocking/unblocking
anyway, already very nice.
Not working with FF13. This is one of my most essential add-ons please fix it.
OK so I rolled back to FF12 and then upgraded back to FF13 and now it seems to work fine.
I have FF13 and it is working fine.
