Does We-Blocker work with other browsers besides Internet Explorer, such as Firefox?

No, We-Blocker does not work with any browsers besides Internet Explorer. When We-Blocker was originally developed, Internet Explorer was the only browser used by the vast majority of Web users.

If you need Internet filtering for Firefox or other browsers, we recommend you use one of the programs or tools reviewed at http://www.safefamilies.org/SoftwareTools.php.

You may try the following to get We-Blocker to work on Firefox, however:

Manually change the proxy settings

  1. Open your FireFox. Click on Tools>Options...
     
  2. Select the  General icon and click on Connection Settings...

     Check   Manual proxy configuration.         

    Enter:      HTTP Proxy:   127.0.0.1              Port:      6711
