The don of all anti-procrastination tools, necessary when I need to force myself to do revision! Loads of options, great customisability; I use the option to block sites during the day so in the evening I can relax :)
Late night internet addiction >> bed late every night, wake up the next morning cursing myself.
Installed LeechBlock on all PCs, block all after 9pm, fixed! Even talk to people on the phone now, and the washing up gets done more than once a week :)
Really simple, and just gives that extra nudge that you need. Like someone coming up to you and reminding you what the time is. Excellent.
Love this plugin - it has single-handedly increased my productivity at work quite significantly (I block the time sucking sites for the first 2 hours of my day that I used to access first thing in morning - and would essentially kill my entire day).
Would love to see the default block screen note when the relevant block expires.
For me this is absolutely crucial software, to the point I have no other web browsers on my mac. It's important enough that I wouldn't have upgraded to Firefox 4 had this plug in not been compatible.
Helped me with my web addiction on a couple of sites. After which I realised just how much time I had gained. Also helps me keep facebook away in a big way.
This is the problem with having the web so easily available on your computer (as easy as opening an application).
For certain people like me, the value can not be overstated.
It's very well thought out. On some websites I need to know I can not go on them within a time period. Others I just need a reminder i've been on it too long, so they can be blocked after a short amount of time for a short amount of time. And others for longer and so on.
Bugs still not fixed, but this addon is still priceless for those of us who are easily temptable
I've been using leechblock for over a year now and it's been great, but I just upgraded to FireFox 4 and the countdown timer no longer appears at the bottom of the screen. This makes it a bit less useful as I can't tell how long I've been wasting time for anymore!
I think that only missing a button on toolbar to open the LeechBlock configurations quickly.
Never mind Firefox. I honestly think that operating systems should come with Leechblock built in! Great program!
Great addon. Thanks!
Adblock Plus to block some image like I said and Leech for block site. Thank You and soon will be great if this addon can block image
Works very well - I have one request. Using wildcards is great - I have it set up so that *.* is blocked after an hour, except for the exceptions. What I would like to request, however, is that when using wildcards (or at least an option for it) each site is treated individually: now, after an hour total on non-excepted sites, no non-excepted sites will work. I'd like to be able to set a limit of one hour PER non-excepted site, so that I can have a certain amount of time on any site before it shuts down.
Works as described and it has significantly decreased by tendencies to procrastinate. However, there is one glaring bug. If you unchecked the option that says to only count time when the black listed page is active, then the timer will start 'doublecounting' (counting down faster than it should be) if you have multiple blacklisted pages open on different tabs.
All I wanted to do was block certain spam sites for good with a quick right click > block. Doesnt seem to have that option, or if it does, must wade through tabs and pages of options to look for it. Atm have to enter the site name in the hosts file. Just cant understand why this addon which seems to have every conceivable option to block sites by duration, day, hour etc is lacking the simplest of all functions, block a site for good with a simple one step right click. (emphasis on quick, one step).
Nice idea, but I cannot get it to work, even though I have the most recent version of Firefox and the most recent version of Leechblock. I have it set up exactly like the Examples page suggests, and nada.
This is the best web block add on ever with most number of useful options. However, I do have a suggestion - please add a button that users can put next to the URL bar so one can access the options / see how much time is left before block down more easily. Thanks.
I thought it worked like a charm :(
A student needed access after 4:3pm so I went to tools, Leechblock, but did not prompt me for a password. I entered another password then tried accessing Leechblock without leaving the current FF session and it prompted me for the password. When I closed down the FF session and started another another, Leechblock did not request the password. I could have sworn I tested this. We are running a dual boot (XP, Scientific Linux/Wubi) with user authentication but that has not changed.
Version 5.1 sp 2 (build 2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.100216-1441)
Any solutions? If not, I withdraw my prev review...Leechbloock gave me a false sense of security :(
Great tool to help me curb my procrastination tendencies at work. It effectively blocks you from your email, facebook, or whatever other site you tend to just drift towards and whittle away the minutes on. This is not a child-locking tool; yes you can "get around" the blocked sites or disable the whole dang thing if you really want to. This is meant as a productivity tool to assist adults. Therefore there is the presumption that as adults we have some restraint and self-control and won't go uninstalling it just to get to our precious email! :)
It works like charm...highly customizable and far far better than buggy Blocksite
Excellent add-on! very easy to use!
"Can you, make it a habit to unplug for four hours a day? Three? Two? What matters most isn't the amount of time, but who's calling the shots: the ceaseless data stream, or you. Decide when to be connected, then decide to disconnect. Alternative metaphor: it's a one-on-one fistfight between you and Mark Zuckerberg for control of your brain. Make sure you win."
I totally recommend this addon to whoever wants to improve its productivity. 5*
I'm waiting for the day the extension blocks the page before downloading the code. Thanks very much for your work so far.
you can block sites that have you hooked.... or program it so you will have a specific time everyday
specific time per week etc etc... it is limitless...
offcourse if you are a facebook junkie for example...you can do stuff to disable it bla bla bla...
but it works as a first shock and reminder that you are about to enter a site that is killing you...
I am so aggrivated by this! I downloaded it for the first time here and its asking me for a password to open the application. I am trying to keep my kids off harmful websites. What the heck is going on here?
You have saved my life!!!
This is Exactly what i need. Simply Perfect! Some ideas are more than i was thinking about. Thank you for prolongating my life, lol!!!
