Firefox has no built-in option for blocking or filtering sites.

A few options for you.

  1. Install the FoxFilter add-on, the downside is add-ons are fairly easy to circumvent - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/foxfilter/
  2. Another add-on that can filter content is the ProCon Latte Content Filter - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/procon-latte/
  3. Install a 3rd-party parental control program such as the free K9 web protection - http://www.k9webprotection.com/
  4. Use the OpenDNS service, there is a free version, and with it you can filter content based on categories that you choose - http://www.opendns.com/
