There is a major bug in the linux installation, version (FF40) where the 'options' are known as 'preferences' and it's located on the edit menu and not on the tools menu. It is neither hidden nor locked when selected in the addon options.
I installed this addon a long time ago to prevent users from messing up Firefox, and it did an ok job.
Then to my surprise I noticed a fishy addon called AdBeaver keeps popping up on my Firefox. Finally I discovered that Public Fox very sneakily keeps installing this adware! how ironic. avoid this useless addon like a plague.
(to clarify, I never received any confirmation about installing the bundled adware.)
Public fox is no doubt the best add on available but after updating Firefox to 38.0.5, opening the bookmarks sidebar by Ctrl+B can be bypassed by closing the password window or by entering anything and hitting OK or CANCEL.Also earlier mentioned by user JND,opening the history sidebar by hitting Ctrl+H is no longer password-protected.Loose ends that needs to be fixed.
I use this add-on to add fine-tuned controls. However, it's lacking in a particular area. White-listing sites.
I want to block all sites except for a few, but can't because there's no url white-list.
This was used in schools. With the new addition to ask to install AdBeaver all the time, Public Fox can no longer be used. We try to restrict access to porn in the schools not make it easier for them.
Reported abuse. Adbeaver porn just makes me sigh a googol times. Fuck off, remove the shit or just pack up your things and move up to a better life.
Good, but please add a timer to lock down firefox if i unlocked it, and add another option to lock firefox if firefox is restarted.
Explain how I just installed Firefox, free of add-ons, and ended up with this stupid add-on blocking my features. Can anyone explain this? I came here to uninstall the app only to realize it ISN'T installed. So, I ask you: how is it blocking me and asking for a password I don't know?
If it were possible, I'd give this no stars.
And get rid of the stoopid beaver thing!
As of Firefox update to 38.0.1, opening the history sidebar by hitting Ctrl+H is no longer password-protected.
As FF is now updated to 38.0.1, so pls block "about:preferences"
Broken after updating to firefox 38.01
I can access firefox options without a password even though lock options is selected in public fox.
FUCK ADBEAVER. I'm not returning 5-star unless you delete the adbeaver that is piece of shit with all of this porn.
I would like this add-on to be compatable with firefox for Android.
OMG. Muito bom! :D . Tudo que eu queria :D . Muito obrigado por esse maravilhoso complemento! :D . Amo o Firefox :D .

I've read a comment about it's being great for public places. I've decided to try this extension because I work at such place and lots of people try to download any kind of stuff to our public computer (which is only for surfing, it's not personal). Public fox is really useful and now that computer is not messy as it used to be.
I used this extension in the past and there were some problems with it that is why I gave the support time to fix them and then share my opinion. Now as I'm testing it I can say that issues I had experienced are solved and it works as has to. I'm glad that people are working and try to give their best for solving any kind of problems if they occur.
If you are looking something which allow you to set your own rules on you pc then this extension is just for you. For some reasons sometimes it stops working properly for a while but when I restart my browser it comes back alive as normal as it should be. I give 4 out of 5 because of that bug but still think that it's awesome.
It seems to work quite well and is exactly what I needed to set some rules on the family computer. Besides, all the good stuff, I like most the URL blocker.
Awesome addon for public places. I work at internet coffee where people are restricted to install stuff. Exactly what I was looking for, thanks!
Страшно много ми харесва. Идеално е за малък офис, където не се администрират много компютри и ограничението може да се направи конкретно на самия браузър.
I can't say straight I like it. There are several issues that are not fixed yet. Some of the options you may like but for the best part of it is the URL blocker. It works fine.
As far as I tested this extension I'd recommend it. I'm satisfied and think you won't regret if you try it.
Idée géniale et il fonctionne
It's a really good one. I like its simple design and how easy and convenient it is.
