    Hi all, does anyone know if Mac OS X has a feature in it's firewall that can allow you to block out certain web addresses? I have looked all through the security settings but I can not seem to find anything that lets you do this.

    Also if Firefox has a feature that lets you do this can you please tell me.

    Thanks in advance for any help:)

    There is no way to block them using the stock Mac OS programs. You can probably do it in the terminal. Most home routers have that ability (my D-Link DL-604 does) and you might want to search the Firefox extension site as there's probably a free one you can install if it isn't already part of it.

    OK thanks for your reply, I didn't even think of my router.
