Some helpful extentions

I'm not quite ready to get into my own story yet, however, I was browsing the extensions for the new firefox and found two that might be very useful for those with PTSD. I'm not downloading them for myself as I mainly have audio triggers (typically men yelling upset), but I figured that they might be useful to those in the comm that have keywords that trigger them.

ProCon Latte

Filter web pages containing explicit content based on text on websites.

ProCon is a content filter for the Firefox browser. It can filter any kind of material (pornography, gambling, hacking, cracking, etc...), it can also block all traffic, making sure that only desired websites (set in the Whitelist) can be accessed, and includes a profanity filter, all *like* a parental control filter.

ProCon also has password protection in order to keep *others* from changing the settings.


BlockSite is an extension, which automagically blocks websites of your choice. Additionally, this extension will disable all hyperlinks to these websites, by just displaying the link text without the clicking functionality. This extension should by no means be used for parental control or access control purposes, just because it isn't secure and can easily be disabled or even removed. This extension adds the site blocking functionality that was removed from Adblock Plus.

You can add and/or remove websites, you don't want to visit ever
again, via the BlockSite Preferences. You can open this window
by clicking on the options button of BlockSite in Tools > Add-ons menu, or by
clicking on the Preferences item in the context menu of the extension
in the Extension Manager.

You can block whole ranges of websites by using the wildcard symbol (*):
If you want to block, for example, a lot of Microsoft websites, you can
use the following line: "http://*.microsoft.*" and "http://microsoft.*"
The * symbol indicates
that there may be zero or more random characters at that place.

You can import and export lists of locations via the 'Import' and 'Export'
buttons in the 'BlockSite Preferences' window.
The first line in the file you want to import has to be the '[BlockSite]'
in order to be read succesfully. So your file may look like:


If you still use Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.*, you can use older versions of this extension.

If you lost your password: go to about:config and reset the BlockSite.authenticate or clear BlockSite.password

Some problems were reported about the loading latency whenever a very long list of blocked urls has to be checked. Every web site often makes more than ten HTTP calls and on every call, the long list of urls is checked. It's quite obvious and I probably won't change it.

*good 'net hugs for all who wish to have them*


PS: I hope the catmacro icon gets some Lols. . .
