Instead of a stand-alone program eating up your system resources, this free Firefox add-on can ensure that young users are safe from inappropriate content. With a few simple clicks, FoxFilter successfully blocks select content on the Web.

FoxFilter can be accessed through your Preferences menu. The tabbed interface is very easy to read, and walks you through each security preference so that you don't miss a beat. The program comes preset with obvious keywords that would raise a red flag. You can edit the list and add your own keywords and Web sites. Likewise, you can add keywords that you want the program to ignore. Specific Web sites can be added to the list with ease. All of your settings can be password protected.

FoxFilter performed exactly as promised and applied all of our security settings without any issues. You'll rest easy when young users are online with the protection this freeware offers. We recommend this simple, effective plug-in for all users.

Developer's Description

FoxFilter is a personal content filter that helps prevent stumbling onto inappropriate content and block access to specific content and Web sites. FoxFilter also includes password-protected security features to secure settings, access Tools/Add-ons and access configuration settings. Includes a 'whitelist' feature which allows parents, library/school lab administrators to designate a specific list of sites that can be accessed. This overrides filtering and has been requested by several users.
