Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension and adblock are a must have for those who want to filter unwanted content.

wtp-
This is an OPTIONAL extension for those who want to filter out unwanted material on the internet, as well as completely *configurable*. So if you wish you can filter out whatever YOU feel is "evil".

It's amusing how you hypocritically protest the creation of an extension that censors, then call for the censoring of this extension.

What -wtp? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I just installed this plugin yesterday, so I haven't had too much time to play with it. However it was easy to configure for me, and seems easily customizable. I only installed it for my Aunt who wanted to block her daughter from looking up so much porn which just wiped out their last computer with viruses. My use for it is not meant for huge parental controls.

I was ready other reviews and am boggled at -wtp's review that this is some warped religious plugin to block freedom or some other such nonsense. This is a completely optional plugin. That alone negates your demand that Firefox have it removed because you think it's hurting your kids. You don't -have- to install it. What's even more humorous is you can configure the content that it blocks? If your idea of explicit content is different from the creator of the plugin, then......change it?

I think the plugin is great, and despite the few bugs I've seen in reviews, I think it does exactly what it needs to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Seems to work very well. However, interface is sometimes confusing, possibly leading to security bloopers:

-On clicking bookmarks to blocked pages, Procon stops the request, then if you pick Continue, the Whitelist comes up, But if you select "Add current page", it adds the domain of the page you *were* on, *not* the page you are trying to go to.

-Under the same scenario as above, there appears to be no way to simply click through to the requested bookmark after supplying the password. Here is what happens: At the top of the page a Firefox alert appears from ProCon with an Options button. The Options button allows, Back, Continue, or Preferences. Selecting Options takes you to a password protected Whitelist with Reload, Add Current Page, and OK buttons. None of the buttons result in continuing to the requested page, nor adding the requested page to the whitelist. The security works, but the bypass feature is broken.

-The Main Filter option to "Render pages after filtering" is not explained on the Procon Latte documentation page or anywhere else I could discover. A documentation revamp may be needed.

-I love the idea of right-click blocking offensive language, but I get spotty results. I do notice that sometimes effects lag, so perhaps all will settle down to a happy routine eventually.

-There is no support option available anywhere that I can find.

I tried using FoxFilter with this one. But ProCon blocks the settings page for FoxFilter, because it contains words like "porn", or other word it is looking for. The address to the settings page start with "chrome://" not "html://" so when I added that to the whitelist, ProCon still won't allow me to get to it.

Whitelist Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using this tool for over six months now, and use it to help those that I'm an accountability partner for.
The only two websites so far that I think need to be added into the Whitelist are:
xxxchurch.com (Helps to bring awareness, openness, accountability, and recovery to the church, society, and individuals in the issues of pornography)
and craigslist.org (provides local classifieds and forums for jobs, housing, for sale, personals, services, local community, and events.)

address bar Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I liked it for avoiding inappropriate information on new tabs(same website each time) that were being launched from www.megavideo.com.
The only problem was that I couldn't get the address bar to work after installing ProCon. I had to get around it by using the search bar and clicking on links from there.
I finally disabled it. Then the address bar worked.
Too bad, I REALLY like the idea.

Very good so far. I do see one apparent problem. You can click to disable the program and it does not require the password. That is a problem with computer savvy teens and pre-teens.

installs in non-standard location Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great tool, first of all, but it installs in a non-standard location. I forgot my password and after removing the extension and then re-installing it, it keeps asking me to enter the password, so now I can't make changes to the tool's settings except by uninstalling or disabling it, which is very unfortunate. This is the Linux version I'm talking about, I don't know if the same problems exist on Windows.

This is REALLY what I was searching for all this time ! A good tool that allow you to give yourself limits and not to be off that limits.
I think we could also call this a Grown Up "Parental Control". BE HONEST WITH YOU ! My strength is in my weakness, especially when I know these weaknesses... YES, very good, every Christian should know it... I AGREE ! (I'm French, MERCI BEAUCOUP !!)
Thank you so much to help us in this going around internet and not put our eyes anywhere... 'Cause the if there is no Light in our eyes, what Darkness it will be !!

No multi user support? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A very good extension. I like being able to block everything apart from what is in the white list.

You can install it for all users of a pc by downloading it and saving it to the root of C: and using the following command:

firefox -install-global-extension c:\procon.xpi

The settings appear to be user specific though.

So the problem I have is when a new user logs in it needs to have the settings re loaded. Is there anyway to store the settings per computer rather than per user?

Unless you disable IE... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This otherwise great add-on becomes useless if IE is still available. To disable IE, login with an administrative account (the assumption is that your kid is using underprivileged user account), find "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe", and from Properties/Security check Deny on Read&Execute permission for your kid's account.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. What a wonderful tool to help us in our daily struggle to keep the filth off of our screens and from seeping into our minds. This is a great add-on and every parent (and Christian) needs it. I am installing this on every computer I own and I will recommend it to everyone. Good job!

Wonderful extension but could use polish Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Extension works very well, but I can't find an email to submit bug reports to.

Bugs:
1. Pressing cancel on password prompt shows 'incorrect password'.
2. Status label shows up on whitelisted sites.
3. Redirecting after a block does not show status label, so you do not know what keyword triggered it.
4. You can still view source of a page even after it has been blocked.

Feature request:
1. Source code please? It'd be wonderful to be able to submit patches.
2. Whitelist keywords: I'd like to be able to exclude 'hardcore' except when found as 'hardcore football'.

Almost there Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately, I passworded proconlatte before adding all the filters and since I made the password ridiculously hard... you can imagine. Is there a way to block sites or adding words to the filter without accessing the options panel?

Whitelist gets lost! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add on is wonderful!
BUT when Firefox crashes on my Macbook, the whitelist is erased and we have to retype it all. Corvineum, could there be a fix for this? Bless you!

Disabled in Safe Mode Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I agree totally with nintendorulz55 and all others who complain about being able to disable in safe mode.

The block site feature on internet explorer is password protected.

This is probably because the most important thing to parents is to block the gazzilons of porn sites from their kids.

You guys should get with the program!

Otherwise, this is an excellent add on! Would have given it five stars were it not for the safe-mode problem.

Procon Latte is not working with Autopager FF addon which is a wonderful addon. Starting from 2nd page generated by Augopager, all pages are not filtering by ProCon Latte. Would you pls support Autopager?

whitelist Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I liked the idea of using this to lock down a station to a specific website. My problem is that when I add the site to the whitelist, it automatically changes the Filter Preset from Secure to Moderate. Then when I change the setting back to Secure, it automatically checks 'Enable Explicit Material Filter' and 'Block All Traffic'. It then also blocks the site that is on the whitelist. I'm stuck, and I really want to make this work!
