Block website

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:

Step 1:

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.

I really hope this can be of help. Please rate accordingly.

Kind regards

Hi, I configured my Linksys WRT 150N Router to block certain URLs. I get the sites blocked on some machines running Windows XP while I cant get the same sites blocked on some running the same XP. Its even...

I was having a similar problem, and solved it by upgrading the firmware of my router. Once I did the firmware upgrade, blocking worked fine. You can get the firmware upgrade by going to the Linksys website, clicking on Support, and then specifying your router model number.

Youtube is blocked please unblock it

I'd go to YouTube and talk with their Support...sometimes if you post something you are not supposed too....they block you. Your operating system and computer shouldn't block you from a Website unless your Anti Virus says so.

Dad blocked facebook with firewall netgear and parent control hel

It is time for you to turn negotiator. Sounds to me like your Dad would like you to spend some quality time doing something else. If you can get your father to compromise on how much time you can spend on the computer each day or to agree to do some other items(chores perhaps?) then perhaps he will let you do facebook for 30 minutes or an hour each day. Your dad sounds like a guy with some computer skills. Some routers will allow a program or website to be blocked for certain hours. He could set the time frame that you could get onto facebook in case you forgot the time. lots of possibilities there but the key is communication with Dad.

Fatal error

Turn off Windows XP firewall or click "allow" in the window and retry.

It's a window telling you that Windows firewall have noticed that CS1.6 is trying to connect to the internet and it asks if you want to allow it or not.When you press "keep blocking" you tell your firewall to stop CS1.6 from using internet.

You can't play online without using the net, right? :)
