- by Firefox user 13432135, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5This has become a critical device for me lately, as I have been forced to do extensive research and surfing using my $10/GB mobile data service for some weeks now. Very easy to adjust the restrictions as circumstances dictate- I can instantly maximize them when doing lots of sifting and perusal on high-data vampire sites like Twitter, then minimize them when I encounter valuable material that I must fully document/read (or whenever I feel the need to look at furry/anime porn--can't do that while blocking all images and such, hehehe).
I salute Firefox's many innovative extension makers for their labor-intensive gifts to mankind!

and yet I could not for the life of me fix the
"Flash Missing" screen, DESPITE downloading and Re-Downloading the Official updated version of Adobe Flash!! It just COULD NOT be fixed...no matter what!!!
THEN...Comes along Jeremy Schomery and his most WONDEFUL Extension: "Policy Control". As soon as I flicked the switch which was originally switched to the off position to the ON position - the Flashless (is that even a word?) website reloaded and what I saw was purely AMAZING!! My Flash Came Back!! Thank you Jeremy Shcomery for this most wonderful of functional and working, but not complicated Extensions!

- by Firefox user 11640498, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Policy Control is exactly what I was looking for!
I wanted to do some safe blocking in my web-surfing (regarding security, privacy, performance issues).
So, I did my homework comparing lot of blocking add-ons (Ublock, Umatrix, NoScript etc). All of them are great tools! However, Policy Control was the "perfect size" for my user profile.
I found Policy Control very powerful, but more intuitive than other blockers. Much more easier to use it.
I am an average user, without technical knowledge. And Policy Control took me less than 10 minutes to learn how to use/configure it.
Also, Policy Control is lightweight when compared to other blockers.
I understand for example, that NoScript could be more detailed/granular.
But in my opinion, most of the users don't need such granular control. And worst, they don't have such know-how.
Policy Control for me has the perfect level of control, not too exaggerated but at the same time also not at all too generalist. It is the perfect friendly control balance, for a safer web-browsing without needing to be days messing with each web-page.
Even those who want a more detailed control, Policy Control has a log containing a list of each element in every page, where is possible to block/unblock.
Most important, I sent an email to the developer with my questions, and just in few hours he quickly replied me with the right answers.
