Pass this one up #srsly Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Clicked the button, opened a quarter-sized pop-up page over the top of the working page. asked me to please disable spam/pop-up blockers so their ads can pay for continued service to their customers. I did so.
My Firefox extension warning me of possible malware and adware lost its frickin' mind, opening warning after warning, telling me to get out of the vicinity immediately. I've never encountered so many warnings in such a short amount of time.
And to top it off, the real web page that does the actual work, displayed "Downloading remote file. . ." for over 30 minutes, of course there is the fully-expected ads above with various women and big boobs.
Finally, it told me, " Error downloading remote file!"
in a word, I'll continue to search for an extension that does the job it advertises. I wouldn't even mind paying for it, as long as it worked. Seems code like that is in short supply.

The HeliOS Project is an Austin Texas based non profit that fixes broken or decommissioned computers then gives them to disadvantaged Central Texas kids. We know how important it is to keep kids safe on the Internet. Many of our kids are between the ages of 8 and 12, and some are latch-key kids, meaning they are home and alone before their parents arrive.
It's not every child that goes looking for trouble on the Internet...unfortunately, trouble has no trouble finding them. That's why The HeliOS Project finds FoxFilter the perfect solution for unattended kids using the computer. What we appreciate more than anything is the ability to centrally update the "blocked" list and the settings from a remote machine. The Internet changes faster than the weather so new websites with innocent-sounding names can be a nightmare for a child to stumble onto. We can update our FoxFilter account quickly and remotely, saving us both time and money.
FoxFilter is also installed on our classroom machines. Our brick and mortar facility has 12 computers open for daily use. Our staff cannot always monitor every machine for inappropriate behavior or surfing so FoxFilter has been invaluable for us.
This is the tool parents and guardians need when they can not be there physically.
