Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's a time saver. Not only because I waste less time on irrelevant websites, but also because it reminds me daily about the true nature of procrastination: it's a leech sucking the energy out of you.
I still experience some frustration when I notice that I can't change the settings while sites are blocked. If you accidently block 24h a day and also block about:addons and such, it's a pain to get your access back.
But please do NOT remove that feature. This wouldn't work if it's too easy to deactivate. That's why parental control doesn't work for me and this does.
Works flawless and bugless for me.
Does not fix issue with re-directs Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Won't stop a redirect, just sends you to a different redirect. Not doing the job for meThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168).
Please can you provide an example of a site that isn't blocked due to a redirect. Normally the way to block in that scenario is to enter the domain name of the final destination.
The Perfect Time Manager! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It does nearly everything you could ask for in a time manager. I have had no problems with this add-on and it has very much worked for me. However, this needs to be an app or an add-on for android/ios devices.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124).
AMAZING Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Such a great add-on. Can't fault it. It does everyone you could possibly ask for.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199).
Simple, effective and easy to use - great productivity aid Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This has been one of the most useful tools I have found for "willpower assistance". It can be used simply as a total blocker, or you can configure it more specifically to reward yourself for good behaviour :-) Entering blocked sites is a simple as typing the name and you can set up different filtering sets to use in the week and on weekends, for example. I am using it with Firefox and have had no problems. I do not use the time lock function, but if you are a hardcore procrastinator, this would be the lockout to help you ! Another tip for productivity - turn of email alerts and set a time interval for retrieval from the server... Good luck with your productivity quest.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52).

No longer works with current version of FF ESR.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2).
Fixed now: try version 184.108.40.206 (or higher).
Entering a random 128-character code to unlock the options menu. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Can you increase the limit to 1024 characters? I can still be assed to type 128 characters to unlock the options menu but I'm sure I won't have the nerve to type 1024 of them.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2).
Essential productivity extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars
...to stop the procrastinator and the irresponsible inside you from wasting too much time on your "leeching" website!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.7.2.1-let-fixed).
Nice, but lacks feature "Temporarily disable" Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very nice addon!!! But lacks feature "Temporarily disable" block. I have added stackoverflow to the block list, to prevent visiting it in work time. But sometimes I need to view some suggestion from this site. For example: I find some receipt on stackoverflow in google and want to view it. But site is blocked. So to view it, I'm going to the options and disable rules for current day, after this I'm viewing result and again go to the options and enable rules. It's tires. So wiil be very cool if someday you add smth like "Temporarily disable" function. It can be like "Lockdown" but oppositely.
Thank you for your time and great addon!
5 Stars Rated 5 out of 5 stars
For anyone like me that tends to procrastinate, you should really get this add-on! The best part about it is that you have the option to prevent yourself from unblocking a site during the time the site is blocked.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.7.2.1-let-fixed).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great addon, however, I'd love a setting where I can enter a password directly on the blocked site in order to bypass the block.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.7.2.1-let-fixed).
Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Life Saver! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I don't use the intricacies of the app, but I have permanently blocked Facebook, which has been the source of my internet addiction and lack of focus when using my computer for literally anything. I can actually get my homework done on time!
For the amount of time this app has saved me, and for the amount of work I've been able to do, I should honestly be giving a quarter of my paycheck to the developers.
Time saver! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very useful, perfect in different ways but the developer needs to sync the time with a private server (Online), because this addon sync with system time and anybody can change this to bypass the addon time-rules.
I hope they fix this.
Very helpful plugin Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This addon helps me to focus on most important task everyday.
Big thanks to author.
A lot of time saved! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
If you want to stop yourself from going to sites every now and then for nothing, try this. It changed my habit in merely two days!
If it can show a custom message it would be awesome. May the developer please consider. Thanks.
Breaks when you use Firefox Sync Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Sync still broken in 0.6.7.2. Installed Firefox 42 on new laptop, logged into Firefox Sync, and went back to previous computer to find all LeechBlock settings were erased. All other addons were intact. Frustrating.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.7.2.1-let-fixed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
A Small Step for Big Differences Rated 5 out of 5 stars
LeechBlock is simple to use, easy to understand, and very, very, very effective. You might think it's not enough, the basic blocking with the page that is either the rather entertaining default or a URL of your choice, but trust me, it helps out a LOT.
The little things do matter--even just adding a few extra steps to goofing off will suddenly make it so unappealing that you go straight back to being productive simply because it'd be easier, and in the long run, EVERYONE gains because you've stopped wasting your time.
The brain is strange, and unfortunately biased towards short term gains over long term ones; fortunately, we have super effective tools like LeechBlock to help us outsmart ourselves.
