Email addresses can be blocked with Right-Click, Block, why is this only possible for URLs within parental controls? (List for Add-Ons should be non-specific)

In order to block trouble-some sites, Parental Controls have to be set up. This is weigh more complicated than it has to be. There are at least two lists blocking sites, BLOCKLIST to filter Add-On Sites, and a second (don't know the name or location) which list known Malware sites and Unverifiable Domains. A user should be able to just Right-Click a URL and select BLOCK to block all pages from that site. A pop-up menu could appear each time a page is being blocked and allow it to be overridden, but should require a number of clicks to confirm.

Hi,

Forum Guidelines are under discussion at present, but we do not ordinarily consider development topics as within the scope of this forum.

That leaves open two avenues for you to try to comment

  1. Leave a short comment on the feedback site.
  2. Try to find a Developer mailing list that considers the discussion on topic

Additionally you may just file a bug yourself, as you have done previously. It is best to try to get developer agreement before filing bugs for enhancements, otherwise they are unlikely to gain traction.

Another alternative is to consider addons. Either check to see if anything suitable already exists, or try to find out if an addon with such properties would possible.

The attack etc sites are from Google or a Google related site. I have not got my own bookmarks available at the moment so I can not easily give more detailed information on that.


The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. (You'll need to be on the latest version of Firefox to submit feedback). Your feedback gets collected at http://input.mozilla.org/, where a team of people read it and gather data about the most common issues.
