This free Firefox add-on is supposed to let you block certain Web sites. But what is actually does is block every single site you attempt to visit.
BlockSites plain interface is fairly straightforward, which is good since there's no Help menu. It allows you to enable warning messages for blocked sites, set up your password, and manage your lists of allowed and blocked sites. The program, though simple in design, seemed flexible at first, allowing you to add, edit and even import and export Web site links. We added sites to both the Black- and Whitelists, but the program blocked each site that we tried to visit regardless of which list it was on. Ultimately, we had to disable the program to visit any sites at all.
Don't bother with this one. It doesn't work and you'll merely waste time setting up lists.
BlockSite is an extension, which automagically blocks Web sites of your choice. Additionally, this extension will disable all hyperlinks to these Web sites, by just displaying the link text without the clicking functionality. This extension should by no means be used for parental control or access control purposes, just because it isn't secure and can easily be disabled or even removed. This extension adds the site blocking functionality that was removed from Adblock Plus.
