Good Concept. Bad execution Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It does do what it's intended to do. However, it isn't without problems.

The UI is rather clumsy, making you enter blocking criteria manually (recent update) and the default when you fire up the UI is "search" instead of "add." Seeing as you're more likely to add block criteria than search for them, this is strange.

It also has trouble blocking foreign characters and symbol characters. Even when you copy and paste, the blocking is hit and miss on a channel with those characters.

Since the update, it's been a huge resource hog, slowing down firefox quite frequently, and sometimes locking it up altogether. It shows a major security flaw in either the plug in or Firefox itself as a plug in should not have this much effect on Firefox.

update - not a good step Rated 5 out of 5 stars

better let Lemonrice work on it.
meanwhile un-install this update, go to the link that he provides above and install 2.0.1 and make sure you set "look for updates" to OFF.
come back here in a few months to see how the updates are going.

this all happens because Mozilla tells developpers to use a new framework that is a pain in the ass.
so what is new in life, but do not take it out on Lemonrice, he will get it sorted, but it will take time.

so calm down and do not shout at him.

Most stupid update Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What the hell has happened in the most recent automatic update ? I cannot right-click block no more ...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.2.3). 

Hi! I'm sorry the last update has caused some trouble, I have put a small explanation in the add-on description.

The right-click functionality has been improved in version 5.2.4, which you can download manually or wait for to be installed automatically in the next couple of days.

Want to love this! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I loved this for so long. It was the answer to my prayers. I never had any of the "stopped working"-type problems others complain of, until...

The August 11 2016 update nuked my block list -- no big deal, I probably only had a dozen or two channels blocked and I can redo that that. But I'm also disappointed that the right-click (aka context menu?) feature has gone away. Not a big deal, still going to give five stars because this is still so much better than YouTUbe on its own and the creator is doing this for donations only, so yeah, 5 (pity) stars, like 4 stars overall, and only 1 star compared to the pre-Aug. 11 version.

Hi! I'm sorry the last update has caused some trouble, I have put a small explanation in the add-on description.

The right click functionality should be improved again in version 5.2.4.

If you would still like to retrieve your old list, you can downgrade to version 2.0.1. to make an export there first.

Great Addon! If it weren't for that last update! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you very much for the new update, Lemonrice. It works wonderfully again. You don't know what you've until you lose it :-)

Keep up the excellent work!

You've ruined this add-on. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This add on was great. I experienced no bugs with it and it was simple to use, I see a channel I dislike on youtube and right click the video and simply blocked the whole channel. Now the list I have built up has been wiped and the aforementioned feature has been removed so now it is more time consuming to block channels. Please revert back to how the add-on used to function, this is terrible.

If you have an export of your list from the old version, you can import that file in version 5.2.4. If not, you can downgrade to version 2.0.1. to make an export first (your channels should still be there).

Thank you for making my life miserable again. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After update everything went to sh*t.
- Old dumps don't load because of new data structure
- Channels now have to be added manually
- Icon in address bar now useless and i have one more cancerous icon on the right, wasting my precious space.

+ I like new UI though. ( Doesn't change the fact that now add-on is useless )

The old export files can be imported again in version 5.2.4 and the right-click functionality has been improved to make it work better.

What Have You Done Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After the last update i lost all my saved channels and keywords , this is a big loss , it took me almost a year to make my list , please do something , this is not how you gain trust of people , very bad

Hi! I'm sorry the last update has caused some trouble, I have put a small explanation in the add-on description.

If you already have an export of the list from the old version, you can import that file in version 5.2.4.

If not, you can downgrade first to version 2.0.1 to make an export there (your old channels should still be there). Then you can import it again in version 5.2.4.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon went from a one right-click-left-click-and-forget on any channel link displayed on the web page to some "Go into the addon pannel through its icon somewhere in the browser and then type in the name of the channel you want and save it each time you want to blacklist a channel" thingy.

Why ? It was just so easy before, doing just what it was intended to, with convenience. Convenience, this is the key word. There are so, so many channels to blacklist on YouTube and we can say that most of us, if not all, just don't want to type in channels names into some setback sub-menu's box for each one.

Also this update brings its own blacklisting system onto the table, simply deleting what was already there, so we're left to start all over, blacklisting all the channels we already hid before.

Would have been a 5/5 since it was filling its task just right (with minor annoyances such as being unable to blacklist from some specific pages types like user profile I think), now it's just annoying. It can block channels, but having to go through such chores to do so on top of having the blacklist reset is a no-no.

Hi! I'm sorry the last update has caused some trouble, I have put a small explanation in the add-on description.

The right click functionality has been improved in version 5.2.4 (although still not as smooth as in the Chrome version, as it is only just supported by Firefox).

Regarding the reset of the list: If you have an export of the list, you can import it again in version 5.2.4. If not, you can downgrade to version 2.0.1, to make an export first.

A lot of wasted hours Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I had 4.800 channels blocked and now you decided to change the blocked channel file type and now all the aforementioned blocked channels are not blocked.

Had to downgrade Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I was happy with it until the recent updates (that deleted everything that i blocked and made other changes that i don't like) so i had to downgrade back to Version 2.0.1 and i am happy again.

Borderline useless Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It works when it wants to. But it frequently deletes the list or uninstalls itself completely. Either way, when it gets back, it only has "1", "2", "3", and "4" blocked, which makes no sense and ends up blocking a lot of things that I DO want to see

Works great... for a while Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This seems to be the Achilles heel of the program. Unlike other reviewers my problem is settings vanishing. I add channels, then one day there's that annoying guy on YouTube again, so I check Video Blocker, and its blank.
I know you can export settings etc. but it's still disappointing.
Maybe automatically loading the blocked list from my file on startup option?

Was working great for months Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I had this for quite a while, but now it's hiding every video from me. Had barely any channels blocked, even cleared the list. Once I disabled the addon, all the videos came back. Going to have to look for an alternative if it exists.
