I'm really grateful that this plugin exists. Once you get use to the right settings, it works like a charm, and is helping me to focus on my work.

Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Support me a lot to avoid distractions at work. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who interested to stay productive and cutoff social media / entertainment consumption.

Very useful tool Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

Very useful to reduce notifiations from incoming mail or social media messages; allowing these a few monutes an hour allows me to keep my focus the rest of the time on writing and analysis

Didn't block sites listed, blocked working sites randomly Waardering 1 van 5 sterren

Didn't block social media, not even once. Tried redoing the setup multiple times and just lost time. What a shame, could have been my best add-on.

Great program Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

I have used leechblock for years now, and as with other users have found it a powerful, flexible way to block bad habit time wasting sites. Easy to configure, and I'm delighted it's being actively developed again.

Perfect for my needs Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

LeechBlock is simple and easy to use. My main distraction from my work was Facebook. It was like my hand had a mind of its own and always opened the website whenever I switched to my browser to do research. But now when my hand does its sneaky move, the LeechBlock block page goes up and I can focus back on my work.

Shows ads Waardering 2 van 5 sterren

The latest version shows an advertisement for a commercial product on the block page.

Edit: Continued the discussion here:

It does not show "ads". The default blocking page (which can be customized or replaced by the user) includes a link to the website of another (yes, commercial) blocking product which is clearly of interest to LeechBlock users. Honestly, the idea that someone would be upset by this is baffling to me.

LeechBlock is, and always will be, free to use -- and free not to use.

Great and Useful Add-on - with some minor flaws Waardering 5 van 5 sterren

This is a really great add-on - it allows you to not completely block your access to a site, but have it so you can use it for a net total of 5 minutes every 15 minutes (or X minutes every X minutes/hours), and only then does it block! It can be made so it only has the timer going when you're actively on the page, so if you have a tab open that you never use, that's no issue. Additionally, you can group lots of sites together, or make lots of different groupings with separate timers.

However, I do find it a bit frustrating that 15 minutes is the smallest amount of time you can set it for, and that you cannot customise the time periods to a larger degree.
Additionally, it previously had quite a minimalistic default blocking page, and now it is quite large and a bit unsightly - if there was an option to have more minimalistic default blocking pages, that would be most welcome.

All in all, though, really useful add-on; have recommended it to others in the past, and will continue to do so in the future.

Thanks for the review! Please email me ( if you're interested in workarounds for the two points you raise (too lengthy to post here).

not really blocking Waardering 3 van 5 sterren

Not really blocking just redirecting. Still lots of blank tabs* to close instead of closing the ad sites

* Or what ever you set the url to show instead of blocked page to
