It would very helpful to be able to see the black-listed sites. In a way, this partially defeats the purpose of hiding where you go. Perhaps the feature could be password protected?

Great! a must-have

Great, thank you.

Great application. However i was wondering if a mode could be added that blocks websites from history, but keeps their cookies?

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'm really missing some options window, where I can see / manage all blocked domains. Maybe there could also be an option to show / hide the "Block this!" entry. If needed, the list could be protected by password, so not everyone can see or change.

Misbehaviour for some scenarios Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It seems the addon get confused for some scenarios:

1) I have blocked "mail.google.com" by accessing Gmail and using the "Block This!" context menu option. That alone works great.

2) Apparently, other *.google.com domais also got blocked. Tested with translate.google.com and docs.google.com. They don't show on Recently Closed Tabs nor History.

Also, I have tested this scneario with others sub-domains (a.xpto.com, b.xpto.com) with same results.

Edit:
I don't know why, but it seems the extension somehow add two hash entries when you add only one URL. Ex. when I block mail.google.com (and only that one) I could see two entries on "extensions.historyblock.stringpref":

baea954b95731c68ae6e45bd1e252eb4560cdc45 - hash for google.com
da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709 - hash for "empty string"

So, I cleaned that registry, went to www.fileformat.info/tool/hash.htm, calculated the SHA-1 hash from mail.google.com and entered that value (1fe099df5f46e4c3c7e8ff6d5a72f695a06acad4) on the registry.
Apparently is working great now.

My Privacy Is No Longer A Chore Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Forget the hassle of "Private Browsing Mode" hiding your non-private tabs when you turn it on. Most of the time, HistoryBlock is even better than Chrome's Incognito Window.

All it takes is just take a few minutes, once, to play around with your AwesomeBar, find all the sites that might leave incriminating traces, and then you can sit back and browse without worrying about whether you remembered to switch to Private.

HistoryBlock is "always use private browsing mode" on a per-site basis, in effect if not in implementation. It's not perfect yet (It won't prevent dirty search keywords from showing up in the form field memory and it won't tell Flash that you're in private mode) but it's very close.

Good idea, but we need to be able to SEE the black and whitelists. Else how can we remember which sites we have blocked?

Nice, but enhancement proposed Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice, but a bit too strong for my usage, and without return. I've blacklisted sites like google that fill my history, but it filter out the cookies too... same for gmail, and other mails.
maybe you could put a mode where there is trace of the filtered_out sites, and especially cookies.
another mode could be the "training mode" where you whitelist all sites used during it is active...

I'll also add another demand : to have a "unblock this" button if a site is blocked (or anyway). also have a block all domain (if navigation on maps.google.com, would block or unblock all google.com)

last is blocking IP ranges...

so here is my proposal summarized :
- have a "learning mode" to unblock all that you do when the mode is active
- have a "trace mode" that list history and cookies blocked
- have a unblock-this menu/button
- have a "unblock/block all domain" to block/unblock base domain (google.com instead of just maps.google.com)
- have IP grange blocking/unblocking

anyway, already very nice.

Not working with FF13. This is one of my most essential add-ons please fix it.

Edit:
OK so I rolled back to FF12 and then upgraded back to FF13 and now it seems to work fine.

Re: Not working with FF13

I have FF13 and it is working fine.

Very thanks.

perfect for hiding those pesky porn websites from your history

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely great extension. I have one request however:

It would be great to be able to block keywords. For example if I entered "hockey" as a blocked keyword, then all pages with "hockey" in the title would be left out of the history.

i have blocked ynet.co.il and lost all *.co.il from my history!

Very nice, I was looking for something like this for a long time! It is working exactly as advertised.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

There is no way to block a domain. For example: http://*.allanalpass.com/

Re: There is no way

You have misunderstood the instructions. In order to block "http://*.allanalpass.com/", you need to block "allanalpass.com" and nothing else. All pages and subdomains for that domain will be blocked.

super Rated 5 out of 5 stars

worx as advertised.
here's a little trick for all those who want to modify the context-menu-entry from "block this!" to e.g. "block from History" or whatever you like. i modified this 'cause i found it a bit confusing so i changed it into "block from History":
-download HistoryBlock manually by right-clicking the "add to FF"-link and choose "save link as" to a folder of your choice.
-rename "addon-8631-latest.xpi" to "addon-8631-latest.xpi.zip"
-extract the zip-file.
-open the file "History Block\locale\en-US\overlay.dtd" with a Text-Editor.
-replace ONLY THE WORDS "Block This!" and NOTHING ELSE!!! with text of your choice.
-save the file.
-add the FOLDER "locale" to the "addon-8631-latest.xpi.zip" by right-clicking the folder "locale" and choose "add to..." "addon-8631-latest.xpi.zip".
-rename "addon-8631-latest.xpi.zip" to "addon-8631-latest.xpi".
-open FF-AddOns-Manager and choose "install AddOn from file...".
-install the AddOn and restart FF.
-enjoy.

When it added to a blacklist, the existing history was deleted, but the history after it was saved and was never deleted.
