I think you can do it on IE, but can't find a way here. There are certain.. websites that I don't want to visit anymore. I want to ban them as a backup if my willpower fails. Looking through the 'tools' section, I can't find a place. Are banning websites possible.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\

Open up the hosts file in notepad or such and add your sites in. Format is simple enough to figure out. Then you can block sites across all web browsers

If you're asking how to block a website within firefox:

Firefox doesn't have an intrinsic 'blocking' of certain sites

However you can use certain extensions...according to me the 'blocksite' or 'procon' extension comes close to what u are asking about.Go for blocksite.

Click Tools-> Add ons -> make sure ur in the extension tab -> click get extensions at the bottom. In the page which opens up, type in blocksite in the search field.Click on its link when the page opens up.Finally click Install now to install that extension.

Alternatively, you can edit the hosts file. The hosts file will be located in C:\ windows\ system32\ drivers\ etc (provided your windows is installed in c:\windows)

Open the hosts file with notepad or any text editor of your choice.
At the bottom in a separate line in the file enter:

127.0.0.1 www.google.com

The example line above blocks access to google.com. if a particular site doesn't get blocked, then also enter the site without www and check.For example:

127.0.0.1 google.com
127.0.0.1 www.google.com

for each site which you want to block do this, that is place an entry on a separate line like i showed you.

However, this won't block access to all the URLs..some nasty ones will slip through...so you'll have to see which ones get blocked..

Anyway, once you alter the hosts file, save it, and restart firefox..and you'll see that the entries which you placed in the hosts file, those sites would not open ...but they would also not open in any other browser which you have, not only in firefox.

Yet another way is by using third party tools for 'parental control'

That's it!

Won't you just unban them if your willpower fails? The only way to surely do it is get a parental guidance program, ban the sites then type in a gibberish password that's impossible to remember.

Yeah, there are tons of filters out there. Block proxies, too, because you might get the urge and use a proxy.


Stop giving him ideas! He needs help.

I got blocksite, and it works pretty well. Thanks a lot

And if you're curious, I'm blocking all porn sites in my knowledge, and 4chan, for I'd like to stay sane

Giving up porn is hard, I know, but you'll have to learn to just watch it and wank all day like everyone else

Enter "http://your ip address" in the address bar. This will take you to your internet settings.

You can block websites there.

uhh, I think you mean your routers settings... in which case it would be your router's network IP (by default 192.168.0.1).

And personally mine does not work if you put the "http://" part
