Can't remove icons! They come back every restart of Firefox, no matter what the options checkbox says... or if I manually remove them.
IS there a difference between AntiPorn and WebFilter? If there are two of them they should be different(and explain the difference) or at least say they are the same! Both of them have have the same options, etc...., just a different name, and icon.
still the best free web filter for children
this add-on collects certain data from its users
if you want a really content blocker, search for uBlock
I agree with other reviews, this add-on does a good job at filtering but all you have to do is disable or remove the add-on. There is no password protection against removing or disabling it. The last review mentioning this was from 2012 and the reply states that developers were working to create a password requirement to disable or remove. That was two years ago??? This would be so much better if a password was required to remove or disable.
Excellent layer of web-filtering.
Excellent layer of web-filtering protection with options for:
spam sites, Block security: malware, virus, fishing,frauds
Block adult material: adult content, sex, nudity
Block abortion,abused drugs,
Block bandwidth, peer2peer, online storage like box.net
Block weapon, gambling, questionable, online games, proxy servers,
Block spam web servers,
Block social-networking, dating and media streaming like facebook.com, youtube.com, etc...
+++ You can also white list sites and synchronize white/black lists.
A great filter I would recommend to everyone.
Warning after happy using this addon for a few hours, it suddenly started redirecting every single website I went to to Google.com! WTH? Watch out this is highly suspicious!!
I use my addon everyday and it should redirect to google.com for your web browsing. Do you have any more information.
This software is very good, filtering is excellent and the addition of password protection for the settings makes it even better than before. Also white/black list sync is really good.
The BIGgest problem is that anyone can unistall it easily from the Firefox Addon manager. There should be a way to ask for a password before uninstalling it.
Hi, Cris, Thank you very much for your feedback. Our team now is working on the feature to prevent uninstalling without password.
nyc add on...
Its a very good plug-in, but my student can disable it.
I like it a lot but it has two major problems with Google:
1 -- With Coolpreviews on Google Images, it opens the webpage even just with the mouseover, even if you don't click the image.
2 -- With Google Maps, when you search an address it doesn't open the new map displaying the address.
I have to remove the installation, waiting for an update.
SORRY - didn't realize there is a bug report page. I'll move this to there.
this add-on is really good but i think it's missing something like a password or something that makes it hard to deactivate, anyway the rest is good, it blocks a lot of bad things.
Blocks all bad no blocking good
THE BEST parental control protection !!! I have already test all the other and THIS ONE IS THE BEST !! very simple to use and absolutly perfect ! no lag, no bug !
Just missing the version 0.18 which include PASSWORD protection for Firefox. It's impossible to find this version V0.18 for Firefox !! Missing or mistake ?
Thanks guys for creating this. I'm still waiting for a "Disable" link removal for the icon, so the pages can never be deleated. But however, it works great for me. We do not shop online at home, so We've blocked every store online. This really works. I do not trust other websites, and best part is, you can block any website you wish.
Muy bueno. Aunque se le podría agregar una clave para el root en el caso de Linux, ya que es muy fácil desinstalarlo y el menor de edad seguiría visitando las paginas a su antojo. Y combinado esta aplicación con las características de BLOCKSITE mejoraría enormemente su funcionalidad.
It is not too bad, but I wish it was a pass protected. its too easy to disable or uninstall. I wish i could be able to hide the icon. Able to do this in chrome. please please invent something to save our kids, and relationships. the porn industry causes too much damage
This addon is a nice idea and seems well made inasmuch as it can do. However, I am uninstalling it because it is practically useless; most families aren't trying to web filter themselves or tiny innocents who need constant supervision anyway--they are trying to keep older kids out of trouble!
So I wish that there were some simple password protected configuration options for a multiuser sytem. Then this, perhaps, could be a secure family filtering solution on Linux, where a password is required to install any web browser besides firefox. But even then, filtering addons to firefox don't seem much use; can't they be bypassed by any user just by starting firefox in safe mode?
Sorry to give this such a low rating; I'm thankful for and impressed by the effort. What would really benefit families, though, is a free, effective, and straightforward content filtering program for Linux--one that could have different settings for different user accounts.
Very easy to use and very promising, but it does not work: it forgets the blocked/unblocked added sites, so it is unusable for me.
Also, a way to see and edit the sites already added to the blocked and unblocked lists would be very very convenient.
When this is solved this can be a really killing application.
It works great. Because of this program, it is very easy to use. The installation is not difficult. And it has a video how to use this program. People who do not like using the new technology can install new this program. Moreover, this program is limited children from the terrible websites such as drugs, weapons, gambling, adult sites, adult content, sex and nudity. Therefore parents can be assured that the children will not be able to visit the terrible websites. ** On the other hand, WebFilter has disadvantage. It affects efficiency of computer. It will take the processing time. It will run more delays. So the computer working slowly when playing Internet. Moreover, this software blocks social network websites. And it would be better if it can be used on the social network websites while protecting terrible websites. Because of social network websites, it is a websites children can be used. Children have to use for their work.
its a great add-ons but it needs another option, i hope they placed streaming media as a stand alone option and seperate them from social networking option.... they can use social network while the video is block
This works amazing but it needs the ability to input words to block. If a certain word (such as "frostwire") shows up any where on the website, the site becomes blocked. A password function would also come in handy.Thanks a lot, though. Keep up the great work!
Works great for me. The redirect page after blocking needs fine tune to provide more information and appealing UI.
