Is there a way to enable content advisor like you can on Internet Explorer browser?

Posted

On Internet Explorer there is an option under tools that allows you to turn on or enable something called content advisor which asks for a password before going to any webpage. I want to know how to set this up on Firefox if possible.

The feature makes the browser completely inoperable until the password is entered? As far as I know, Firefox doesn't have anything like that built in.

There are some add-ons which password protect Firefox in a limited sense. This thread has an example: can I protect a profile with a password? However, users may be able to bypass this protection in a couple different ways, so it's certainly not airtight.

You might need external software to have more control over Firefox. See for example:
