ProCon Latte Content Filter is a free content filter for the Firefox browser. It can filter any kind of material (pornography, gambling, hacking, cracking, etc…), it can also block all traffic, making sure that only desired websites (set in the Whitelist) can be accessed, and includes a profanity filter, all *like* a parental control filter.
Have a lot of tabs open, but only need to find those that meet a certain criteria? The Firefox add-on named Tab Filter / Tab Search will give you that ability. Once installed, this extension lets you only show tabs that match the results you want to see.
Adblock Plus is a terrific add-on for Firefox that does an excellent job at blocking advertisements on websites. In the past, I’ve even interviewed the developer of the script, and I would say this is a must-have extension for Firefox too. While protecting yourself from malware ads is a good thing that Adblock Plus does very well, what should you do about websites you wish to support? Today, I’ll share with you the steps to take if you want to whitelist advertisements on one website, while still blocking ads on other websites.
Ever needed to search through, correct or delete the entries that are saved to the form history inside of Firefox? With Firefox alone, this can not be done. If you download the add-on Form History Control – then you will be optimizing your saved form history in no time at all.
Picking a location for all of your downloaded files is an easy thing to do. All you have to do is go to Tools in the menu bar, then Options, then in the Main tab, pick your place to save your downloads. What if you want all your downloaded .zip files in a folder named “Archives” and files downloaded from Mozilla.org to go into a folder named, “Mozilla Downloads”? Then you need the Automatic Save Folder add-on for Firefox.
We are always talking about adding features to Firefox, what about for those people who would like to take them away? Better yet, how about adding features that let you take other features away? Ok, now I am even confusing myself.
Firefox has some great add-ons to use when it comes to blocking, filtering or checking out the sometimes shady information that may be passing through it.
LeechBlock – This extension is much more for saving you from looking at random stupid links when you should be working. If you can not keep yourself focused, you may need to add this to your own Firefox install.
Flashblock – Tired of seeing the offers to punch President Bush, the Pope or any other important person to win an iPod? The Flashblock add-on has your back as it will block all flash until it is told not to.
Adblock Plus – How could you not love Adblock Plus? Filter out the ads you don’t want to see – and automatically subscribe to filters so you don’t waste time setting these things up yourself. Not to mention, I did interview the creator of the script a few months back (very awesome guy!).
CookieSafe – This extension will allow you to easily control cookie permissions. It will appear on your statusbar. Just click on the icon to allow, block, or temporarily allow the site to set cookies.
Know of another blocking or filtering tool that does a better job?
Browsing the Web from work or with the chance that somebody might catch a passing glance at your screen can sometimes be like playing Russian roulette. You might get caught, you might not. Now if your not one who seeks the thrill of outsmarting the boss you may wish to play it a ‘bit on the safer side with No-NSFW.
The No-NSFW add-on for Firefox will warn you whenever you are about to view a page that may not be suitable for all ages. It is a tiny addition to the browser that lives in your statusbar. You can vote too, when you reach an unrated page to determine if it is safe for work or not.
Poor ol’ Rick Astley has never been as popular as he has been in the past few weeks. Thanks to the new Internet prank of “rickrolling” millions of people have listening to his song. Probably more so than listened to it in 1987 if I had to guess. If you have your Firefox handy you too can get in on the fun.
RollTube is the first one the list, after installing this addon it will switch every video on YouTube with the infamous video of Rick shaking his funky white stuff. Here it is in action:
If all this Rick Astley love isn’t doing it for you, and your more annoyed than amused by it all then I have an addition to Firefox to help you out as well. Pick up the Rickroll Database. This is a filter you can setup your AdBlock Plus to subscribe to. You can also submit your own rickrolling videos to the database to make sure nobody else gets fooled by it again.
Just remember, here on Firefox Facts we’ll never give you up or let you down either… promise!
Need a different way to filter the Web you use? If you want to block certain types of Web sites, this Firefox extension might be the way to go.
Personal content filter based on user-defined preferences such as keywords, filtering sensitivity settings and URL exceptions. Password protected (default password is “foxfilter”).
Yet another interesting way of filtering content for your Firefox browser. The one feature I really like is the blocking by keyword. That is really neat, and have not seen it in too many other downloads like this.
