Is there a way to enable content advisor like you can on Internet Explorer browser?
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:
- Block and unblock websites with parental controls on Firefox
- http://www1.k9webprotection.com/ (I'm aware of this one because we have had support requests related to sites changing and becoming blocked until new exceptions were added)
I think there is no such built-in feature of Firefox but you can use an Extension.
Here are some options:
- ProCon Latte Add-on
- A third party parental control program is k9 web protection
- You can filter content based on categories that you choose with OpenDNS Service
Hope that helped you! Please report back!
