not working well with firefox 27 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

only shows up some sites to block or allow. and i noticed this when i went to animefreak and only 2-3 requests show up instead of 8-9.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Essential part of my web security. Allows me to choose which cross-site requests are permitted (and makes me wonder sometimes why these webmasters think they need to connect to so many other sites!) Doesn't interfere with NoScript specifically, but allowing scripts from the site is not the same as allowing connection to that site. To enable both, you have to choose both, but it doesn't seem to matter whether you enable scripts first or cross-site first. One of the first plugins I add to any new installation of Firefox.

Doesn't work properly with Firefox 27 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

this is one of the most important addons i use.
i use requestpolicy 1.0.1a1 from the authors website.

though there were no updates for a long time the addon still worked like a charme.
even after countless firefox updates.

but now it seems like the time has come where it doesnt work properly anymore.

if i update to firefox 27 it wont show most of the blocked requests that it did with firefox 26 and below.

seems like the author disbanded from this project and there will never be any updates.

too bad, now i am in a dilemma and dont know if i will stay on firefox 26 or update to firefox 27 and live without request policy.

maybe i will find another addon with the same ability that is working. at least i hope so.

For me one of the most important add-ons for Firefox. I used it for years, then tried other solutions, but came back to it.

It's like a firewall, blocks all 3rd party sites, most ads and tracking scripts, which makes surfing more secure and much faster. This makes the bloated Adblock Plus/ Edge redundant (for me). Great in conjunction with NoScript, which gives the perfect security suite.

Yes, you have to do a little work to whitelist at the beginning, like NoScript. So it will probably not be for the average user, who will be stressed out. But in the end it will give you great security and a faster and less annoying web experience.

This is awesome. After Adblock and its thousands of filters made my browser next to useless, I switched to this whitelisting approach. A little harder to use but much faster.

Useful, simple and gives a very good summary/summary on headed pages Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use it some months now and must say, its great to know all the sites which want to crawl into my browsers cache (and maybe somewhere else)!
The placeholders for i.e. images are great. If you hover over a placeholder, you can read the source of the image and then decide to switch that site on in the preferences very quickly.

I'm only missing a sync feature. Im-/Exporting is possible though, but I'm working with my MAC the whole day and after work its very inconvenient/time-consuming to export and import the black- or whitelist to my PC

Beside this, its a great addon and its greatly helps users to get a clue whats "behind" the page, they're surfing!

Very nifty security tool for browsing! There are still some UI issues to work out etc. (even in the 1.0 beta). Also this is sadly anything that I'd see becoming so easy to use that it could be installed by everyone. E.g. not something that I'd install in my parents' browser. The rule subscriptions of the 1.0 could be a step in that direction, but still I'd fear there might be too many services/sites that still would break, and the reasons for those would perhaps always be too difficult to show easily enough for the vast majority of ppl to utilize.

Worth installing for those who are willing to read simple instructions and are keen to learn how to use a hugely beneficial tool. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic! ....(because...) I do not know a lot about the internet or computing but am aware of the ever-growing necessity for the modern individual to increase their savvy in this field. This product has been very well made and the instructions for its usage are clear and simple. Thank you Mr Samuel for your time and effort spent in bringing us this add-on. PS., I employ both RequestPolicy and No-Script concurrently and thus far have encountered no problems that couldn't be put down to user ineptitude.

I changed my mind on this, had to disable it. It interferes too much with noscript and too complicated to use for the average joe.

I feel really naked, when I have to browse the web without it. That said, the android version of this addon isn't compatible with the latest firefox version (25.0.1), so I feel really naked there...

should be built-in on every browser

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Эта версия - 0.5.28, весьма неплоха и юзабельна. А вот у новых бета-версий интерфейс перепилен в соответствие с новыми веяниями и стал совершенно непотребен, что весьма расстраивает.

One problem... I put in *.cloudfront.net and cloudfront.net into the destination whitelist and the origin-to-destination whitelist and it's still blocking all *.cloudfront.net by default.
NoScript had no issue whitelisting by the same method; haven't been able to figure it out without having to temp allow per page to keep the whitelist a little cleaner.

Really nice but buggy Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I must admit I really love the add-on but it has a few bugs. Mainly it's not always updating all requests (for example on sites that are mainly operated through javascript and not re-loaded through html) and sometimes it doesn't show all requests even if they're made by html (Noscript is showing the requests but RequestPolicy isn't). So when it doesn't display them I cant unblock anything and its not possible using the site, deactivating the add-on fixes it. Also sometimes it shows domains as whitelisted when they're blacklisted, sometimes it shows them blacklisted and whitelisted at the same time, without allowing to do anything when hovering over the whitelist entry.

Simple to understand and working well.

Ghostery is no choice for me since it is no libre software.

very good addon for more privacy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely perfect. This is a must have with Noscript

Feature Request Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I suggest adding the ability to block a destination after enabling all requests.
Great addon btw.
Thanks.

Great but could improve on a couple of things Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I'm using RequestPolicy with NoScript for a more fine grained approach. As such, the ability to show the add-on menu on mouse hover and the possibility to mark domains (or even request types) as untrusted are essential.

Please, developer, consider this.

Other than that, great add-on for anyone who values privacy and security.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's the one of my favorite addons, thanks.
But I think it could be more simple and easy in dayly use for everyone by adding more obvious visual methods like NoScript did.
Look at NoScript:
blue "S" symbol on a white backgroud opposite every blocked site in a list - to enable script on a certain site;
strikethroughed red signs with "S" symbol - such a GUI methods extremely helps not to make efforts to block/unblock sites using exceptionally a reflext only :)
And it would be handy for users to add possibility to open a menu on hover as is in NoScript.
