can we build a black list that applies to every website, for certain cross-requests? it seems more useful than a whitelist, though I´m not quite sure..

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There are 2 reasons I don't give this 5 stars:
- Rules are only global. Rules per site isn't supported.
- This addon leaks memory A LOT!

When I have Firefox running over 24 hours RequestPolicy have eaten more than 1 GB of memory.

Essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Essential security add-on which gives you control over the connections that websites try to make.
I am using the version 1.x beta which you can only get from the dev's webpage. this version is way easier to use than the regular version that you find here.
I hope the dev continues to develop this essential add-on.
As for possible improvements:
the chrome add-on http-switchboard has an interesting gui, it shows you what and where sth is requested (e.g. iframe), would be nice to have similar info in rp.
another improv. that I'd like to see would be the possibility to use wildcards anywhere in a rule/policy (in the current 1.x version it's only possible to use wildcards at the end of a domain name(e.g. example.com*).

Сonvenient! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Незаменимое дополнение, особенно выручает когда надо просмотреть кучу сайтов, получается намного быстрее без загрузки графики, ну а когда нужный сайт найден двумя щелчками мыши можно разблокировать показ изображений.
И еще масса опций.

Das ist ja mal hoch genial Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Mit Script-Blockern kann man zwar generell Scripts blocken, aber weder selektiv auf einer Web-Site noch andere Resourcen wie Tracking-Pixel etc. Ich wünschte mir sehnsüchtig ein Plugin, mit dem man einstellen kann domain-x.com darf domain-y.com laden. Jetzt hab ich es gefunden, das schließt nun die letzte systematische Lücke beim Browsen. Zusammen mit NoScript, Cookie Monster und AdBlock Plus ist nun Schluss mit lustig.

request everyone install this or enforce by policy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a must have along with adBLOCK edge and (beef taco or ghostery) and NOscript and (greasemonkey or scriptish)

Perusing the interweb without any filtering is almost as foolish as using outdated sms texting when zero-cost xmpp texting is available for every device.

Even if you're a facetard you can learn to use RequestPolicy. Wisely tinker to restore essential functionality only

Hopefully the developer or a forker will ad subscription functionality to encourage more widespread usage. I'm confident many of the adblock subscription maintainers would happily release f/oss subscriptions for RequestPolicy -- especially for online finance and webmail should one's contracts with such be at least sensible with respect to the high value of user privacy and not be raping it for profit by default.

Used this, but after a while switched it to accept all by default. have still kept it installed though ... wish there were a middle road (between allow all and bug me with a million notices) for a n00b like me :)

Не работают стрелки начиная с Firefox 27 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Не знаю что случилось, но начиная с 27 версии RequestPolicy не позволяет загружаться вкладкам после восстановления сессии, а также не работают стрелки, то есть не работает переход на предыдущую страницу (-ы). К моему большому сожалению вынужден отказаться от данного расширения. Буду ждать, может исправят.

not working well with firefox 27 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

only shows up some sites to block or allow. and i noticed this when i went to animefreak and only 2-3 requests show up instead of 8-9.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Essential part of my web security. Allows me to choose which cross-site requests are permitted (and makes me wonder sometimes why these webmasters think they need to connect to so many other sites!) Doesn't interfere with NoScript specifically, but allowing scripts from the site is not the same as allowing connection to that site. To enable both, you have to choose both, but it doesn't seem to matter whether you enable scripts first or cross-site first. One of the first plugins I add to any new installation of Firefox.

Doesn't work properly with Firefox 27 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this is one of the most important addons i use.
i use requestpolicy 1.0.1a1 from the authors website.

though there were no updates for a long time the addon still worked like a charme.
even after countless firefox updates.

but now it seems like the time has come where it doesnt work properly anymore.

if i update to firefox 27 it wont show most of the blocked requests that it did with firefox 26 and below.

seems like the author disbanded from this project and there will never be any updates.

too bad, now i am in a dilemma and dont know if i will stay on firefox 26 or update to firefox 27 and live without request policy.

maybe i will find another addon with the same ability that is working. at least i hope so.

For me one of the most important add-ons for Firefox. I used it for years, then tried other solutions, but came back to it.

It's like a firewall, blocks all 3rd party sites, most ads and tracking scripts, which makes surfing more secure and much faster. This makes the bloated Adblock Plus/ Edge redundant (for me). Great in conjunction with NoScript, which gives the perfect security suite.

Yes, you have to do a little work to whitelist at the beginning, like NoScript. So it will probably not be for the average user, who will be stressed out. But in the end it will give you great security and a faster and less annoying web experience.

This is awesome. After Adblock and its thousands of filters made my browser next to useless, I switched to this whitelisting approach. A little harder to use but much faster.

Useful, simple and gives a very good summary/summary on headed pages Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use it some months now and must say, its great to know all the sites which want to crawl into my browsers cache (and maybe somewhere else)!
The placeholders for i.e. images are great. If you hover over a placeholder, you can read the source of the image and then decide to switch that site on in the preferences very quickly.

I'm only missing a sync feature. Im-/Exporting is possible though, but I'm working with my MAC the whole day and after work its very inconvenient/time-consuming to export and import the black- or whitelist to my PC

Beside this, its a great addon and its greatly helps users to get a clue whats "behind" the page, they're surfing!

Very nifty security tool for browsing! There are still some UI issues to work out etc. (even in the 1.0 beta). Also this is sadly anything that I'd see becoming so easy to use that it could be installed by everyone. E.g. not something that I'd install in my parents' browser. The rule subscriptions of the 1.0 could be a step in that direction, but still I'd fear there might be too many services/sites that still would break, and the reasons for those would perhaps always be too difficult to show easily enough for the vast majority of ppl to utilize.

Worth installing for those who are willing to read simple instructions and are keen to learn how to use a hugely beneficial tool. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic! ....(because...) I do not know a lot about the internet or computing but am aware of the ever-growing necessity for the modern individual to increase their savvy in this field. This product has been very well made and the instructions for its usage are clear and simple. Thank you Mr Samuel for your time and effort spent in bringing us this add-on. PS., I employ both RequestPolicy and No-Script concurrently and thus far have encountered no problems that couldn't be put down to user ineptitude.
