I thought you said you had to do it at the browser level? If that's not
the case, one of our list members provided a link in the following post
that shows how to use IPSec filtering to block websites. It would be
much easier to maintain than editing host files.

I would check out the FireFox ADMs as well. I'm not sure if there is any
kind of ability to block websites, but if you have Firefox users they
might come in really handy for you. I used to use them at an old job and
they worked pretty well for basic configuration.

In this case, this will do the job.

Thanks,

Yes. That is the universal method for screwing over browsing J. Not very
maintainable over time-you're much better using a proxy-but it works...

I found out that if you modify the hosts file with 

127.0.0.1 facebook.com
127.0.0.1 www.facebook.com

This will work.

Thanks for your help.

Dave-

There are FireFox ADMs out on SourceForge ,which have been referenced at
least once on this list. But I don't believe that those ADMs include any
ability to block specific websites, along the lines of IE's Content
Ratings feature.

Hello,

I would like to know if there is a group policy to control Mozilla.  I
have several users that do have this program installed and I need to
block some sites from them at the browser level.

Thanks,

Dave
