    I've been using an extension name "Block Site" for several months today i found out that another vendor has taken possession.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/blocksite/?src=search

    Then i stumbled upon their privacy agreement "always read" these agreements..

    http://www.wips.com/eula.html

    TERMS OF USE AND END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT
    FOR WIPS.COM TOOLBARS, EXTENSIONS AND ADD-ONS ("EXTENSION SERVICE")

    NOTE: WIPS.COM'S EXTENSION SERVICE COLLECTS AND STORES INFORMATION ABOUT THE WEB PAGES YOU VIEW. IN SOME CASES, (INFORMATION COLLECTED BY THE EXTENSION SERVICE MAY BE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE) BUT PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT AT WIPS.COM, AND WE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ANALYZE WEB USAGE DATA TO DETERMINE THE IDENTITY OF ANY WIPS.COM USER.

    This piece about information collected by the extension service may be "personally identifiable" doesn't sit well with me.. :shifty:

    Its install and to return the favor... :)

    If you have employees children or anxious neighbors that like to log on to facebook when your not around you can block it so that nobody can log on no matter how hard they try. Open Block Site Plus and enter https://*facebook.com/*

    Enjoy..
