Whitelisting: Such a headache. Why was this changed?

Posted

It used to be so easy. You just either block or whitelist a website in Permissions. Now its a nightmare. Here we are: about:preferences#privacy I see no way of doing anything on this page. I don't even know why its here. How about adding an option like ADD WEBSITE. It just seems like monkeys run this organization.

What kind of permission are you trying to grant?

Have you tried the Page Info dialog, Permissions panel, while you are on the page? You can call that up using any of these:

  • right-click a blank area of the page > View Page Info
  • (menu bar) Tools menu > Page Info
  • click the lock or "i" icon to the left of the site address, then the ">" icon, then More Information

Click Permission, and then when you need to make an exception:

  • Uncheck/clear the "Use default" box
  • Select the permission you prefer

Hi Dinushi Dhananjani, the block list (regular vs. heavy duty) is a global setting, not something you can adjust on a site-by-site basis, so I don't think it will help in this case.
