Interferes with Firefox sync Rated 3 out of 5 stars

In order to sync in FF, it was necessary to disable this facility. Whitelisting the accounts.firefox.com were of no effect. Pity. Presumably, the way to accommodate this to FF sync would be to disable it only when doing sync. Otherwise, leave it 'on'.

BLACKLIST Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really, REALLY wish someone would grab the source code for this addon and add blacklist capability. It's a great addon, but I want to use it ONLY to block the ability of people to snag my IP using pics on certain message boards, while leaving all other sites alone. Someone please run with this! TIA

Dead and abandoned Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The "1.0" add-on (from the author's site) was decent while it was being updated, but there have been no commits to the GitHub repository for the past year. Go with EFF's PrivacyBadger instead, which provides an extra level of control (block, allow javascript without cookies, allow javascript and cookies), and is relatively new and actively maintained.

Awesome addon, makes browsing way more fast, secure and private. Also saves some amount of system memory if you don't enable social widgets (Hello, Facebook! Hi, Twitter! etc).

The things, that I would like to see in it:
* blacklisting - I don't want to see some hosts I would not enable most of the time
* more custom banning - for example, on the most sites I want to enable specific 3rd level domain, but sometimes - to enable all of them along with 2nd level domain (cloudfront, for example). So, few additional allowment options would be nice. Example list:
"allow requests to somelongname.cloundfront.net"
"allow requests to cloudfront.net (with subdomains)"

Impractical for Everyday Use Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I like the idea of this add-on. However, I am normally only guessing about what is, or is not, need on any given page or site. For that reason, I don't think it can succeed at providing increased privacy or security. At least, not in its current form.

Agreed with most of the others - this is an excellent tool, and yes, adding a blacklist will be helpful as well.

I tried NoScript back in the day but it was too terse/cryptic for me - I love Request Policy's simple dropdown list of sites style. Not to mention apparently NoScript and others don't actually stop the browser from connecting to the ad servers, they simply don't run the scripts there - but the ad server would've already had your IP. Request Policy blocks all connections that aren't allowed, period. Surfing is way faster now.

Great add-on. I would like to see a blacklist and a middle-click feature that let's you see a site's Security and Privacy info page like in NoScript.

Works well, but could use a blacklist Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works exactly as it should, however, having a blacklist (like in NoScript) would make things easier over time, since it would be quicker to white list addresses that are safe, instead of having to look between the unsafe addresses every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.
