Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
This is a tip explaining step by step how to block websites on your Firefox browser. This is a very handy tool when you want to block certain sites from your children, or block pornography.
Here is how we do it:
We need to download the software which will enable you to block web pages. This is a ad on for Firefox, LeechBlock. Click HERE to download.Once you are directed to download page, just click on the "ADD to Firefox" option.
You need to wait 4 seconds, then click on install.
After the add on finished installing, you will need to restart your browser. Just click on the restart option. You will have on pop up when the browser has restarted, this is just to show that you have installed a new add on.
Now, we can start Blocking certain websites. Here is how we do it.
Go to the "Tools" tab and move your pointer to Leechblock. Choose options.
Now, say for example i want to block You-Tube and Keepvid. Just type in the URL of the pages you want to block Choose the time of each day which you want the sites to be blocked. Also you need t choose which days you want the sites to be blocked. I chose the whole day, and every day of the week.
You can also name your set list, i named mine, Youtube. Click "OK" when you are done.
Now we can test the software. I will attempt to go to you tube.
This is a very handy tool to block websites you do not want to accessed. It is very discreet, and your children will not even know it is installed, because it does not show on the main display like other add ons.
For other examples on the blocking method, click HERE. The other examples will show you how to block sites for only certain days, and certain periods of time. For more info on Blocking adds, feel free to read my tip, click HERE to read.
