How To Block Websites In Internet Explorer And Mozilla Firefox?

The disadvantage of blocking any website through windows hosts file is that anyone can edit hosts file to remove the restrictions as it is not password protected. However blocking websites in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox is way too easy and much more reliable as the list of the restricted websites is now password protected. No one can change settings except administrator. So here is a step by step guide to block any website in Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

How To Block Websites In Internet Explorer

  1. Open any Internet Explorer and navigate to Tools->Internet Options. Click on the Content tab. In the Content Advisor panel, click on Enable
  2. In the Content Advisor window, click on the Approved Sites tab and write the name of the website you want to block. You may use * to block all sub domains of that website. For example you want to block Facebook in Internet Explorer, all you need is to type * in the text box and click the Never button.

    Worked beautifully. Instructions were very simple and easy to follow.
    Got rid of Secret Crush posts and sex related ads that suddenly started
    appearing on my Facebook page. Feels great to have gotten rid of them
    once and for all. As well Firefox is a great browser to be able to
    handle this crap once you add the filter to it!:)

    Hi tonje, while using firefox hit ctrl+alt+p, this will bring up the procon password entry screen so you can access it.
    The reason its hidden itself is so that other users cant access and edit it :)

    I hope this helps.

    Erin11 years, 10 months ago

    Hi, I’ve been trying this method for a long time. It doesn’t work for me. It still allows the websites to come up. I’ve even tried limiting allowed content but it then blocks every, single website. Please advise. Thanks!

    Tonje11 years, 11 months ago

    This was an exellent How to do-list, but now I cant get inn to ProCon Latte again.
    I have made an option that when ever we try to go to an blocked page, we are redirecting to another webpage. In the toolbar, procon is also gone. When I try to go to Procon latte, I am redirected to the other webpage.

    What have I done wrong, and how can I fix it back to normal?

    Pls help me.
