Locking down Firefox

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

In IE, one goes to:

Tools/Internet Options
Security tab
Select Internet icon
Click on Default Level
Move slider to High
Click Apply
Click OK

Then, one adds trusted websites to a white list.

Can one remove access to _any_ website initially in Firefox?
If this is not possible, can this be done in another non-IE browser?

Hello Albert:

I'm not sure if this is going to answer your question.

A proper entry in your computer's HOSTS file will forbid access
regardless of the browser.

Firefox achieves this through add-ons. (This allows you to tailor your
security to suit your needs with a fair degree of granularity.  The
downside is that newbies may not know which to select and why.)  

The particular one closest to what you've specifically asked for is
"blocksite" which allows you to manage blacklist and/or whitelist.  
Another addon that approaches this problem from a slightly different
direction is "Adblock Plus."

Two Firefox security addons I consider essential are "Flashblock" and
"Noscript."  And lastly (not quite essential but still very useful) is
BetterPrivacy (for managing flash cookies, etc.)
