how can i block a website from opening in firefox

Chosen solution

There's a couple of ways you can go about this.

You can use Firefox's WebsiteFilter policy to block websites with either a Windows Group Policy or a policies.json file.

However, some users find that it's much easier to install a browser add-on that can block websites instead. There are a variety of add-ons published on the Firefox Add-ons website that can offer this functionality, like Block Site (or even Website Blocker, which I created ;-) ).

There are pros and cons to both. Add-ons are generally easier to setup and manage, especially if you are only blocking a few things, but they are very each for someone to disable. Policies are a little harder to setup, but they are far more difficult to circumvent, since they are designed to be used in business environments.

Hope this helps.
