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!

The words in Profanity Filter won't filter the same word in partially manner, say when a word f**k is added, when f**kin is found, the word won't be filtered. User can't add all tenses of the word. Pls Corvineum changes this word filter stronger. Thx.

I thank you for the really good idea! But can't establish a good configuration: on 'secure' it's filtering almost every website... :S

Like the idea, don't like how it's working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I started to browse the web with this addon installed, and it nearly blocked every site I visited. It even blocked addons.mozilla.org (this extension). It blocked some forums, and so on. Some sites, completely appropriate, are blocked.

I believe an option to 'warn' the user about the site, before it is displayed, instead of completely blocking it, should be added. (If there is it should be more... apparent.) But, I love the idea of this extension.

RE: Like the idea, don't like how it's working

I will make a note as possible feature.

Thank You Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is exactly what I wanted. I love the FF interface and didn't want that to change. I found myself looking at porn at times (like an idiot). This really helps with self-control. Thank you very much.

Very Well Done! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using this for its ability to block all except what is on the whitelist. Running in conjunction with r-kiosk, this makes a perfect kiosk that keeps users on your site with no chance in he** to leave :-)

Keep up the good work!

firefox 3.0 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Can you update to 3.0. I donated June 1, 2008 and now cannot use your add-on. I could go back to the older version of firefox.
Thanks!

Compatibility with new version Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For commenters: Use Nightly Tester tools add-on to make addons compatible with the latest upcoming versions of Firefox (including procon for firefox 3).

For program creator: Regexps in filters.... Please...

Good job !
I 'm waiting for Turkish language support. I can help for Turkish language translation if it is possible.

RE: nzd

Cool. Currently there is no Turkish translator for ProCon, however, if you want you could register at http://www.babelzilla.org/ and translate ProCon's strings into Turkish.

The update for version 3.0 of Firefox is currently pending in the sandbox. I can\'t assure you on how long it will take, it depends by the reviewers.

Exactly what I was looking for. Does a good job of blocking inappropriate text and webpages from view while my young cousin is using the computer.

Regular Expressions? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I just installed ProCon and have been experimenting with it for a bit.

Unless I'm missing something, it seems that the 'explicit language' filter requires you to enter every variant of every obscenity. I believe this add-on would be greatly improved with the ability to specify regular expressions --- for example, instead of blocking ALL of the following obscenities:

foul
fouling
fouled
foulin
foulin'
foulhead
motherfouler

. . . it would be much simpler, and more effective, if ProCon recognized regular expressions such as:

/\w*foul\w*/

Since I realize not everyone in conversant in regular expressions, perhaps ProCon could allow regular expression filtering in addition to the current string literal filtering?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.9.3). 

It already does =P

Sorry if this reply took 4 ever!
Anyways, ProCon always supported RegExps.
Since it already compiles the list from code, you should always "embrace" the individual terms by word boundaries or what...

E.g. foul[a-z0-9]* does the trick very well... (I haven't refreshed my brain with RegExps for quite some time, however, I would bet that there is another way of writing that pattern.

Take care,
Corvineum

Needs work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

If you're worried about your kids viewing or reading some of the trash that seems to pop up at every turn while surfing, this add-on is no substitute for a commercial internet filtering/monitoring product. However, for your own personal use (which is what I use it for, having no kids to worry about) it is a decent enough solution. Still, in a number of areas it is severely lacking. For example, the filter blocks utterly harmless pages routinely if "moderate" or "secure" settings are selected for the main filter. Consequently, I always have it on the "low" setting. This means that its main use for me is the secondary feature of filtering profanity. But the profanity filter requires typing in every swear word you can think of (not my idea of a good time, but that's just me) and/or waiting until you see the words somewhere so you can right-click and filter them. Not especially efficient either way. I'd like to see a preloaded database of profanities included to at least get us started. Anyway, I certainly appreciate the effort by the developer(s).

(I use this add-on in conjunction with the WOT, Adblock Plus, and Flashblock add-ons, and together they come near providing a friendly surfing environment for myself.)
