Blocking websites? On a Mac? Anybody?

I want to block some websites on a Mac. We use Firefox 3, on Mac OS X 10.5. Any suggestions?

go https://www.opendns.com/start/device/apple-osx-leopard

and follow the rest of the wizard.

you can then sign into the control panel and create a blocked sites list

If you only have a handful of websites to block, just redirect them using the hosts file. Basically you just tell your computer to go to the IP you've specified (usually loopback)

Here's an Apple knowledgebase article on how to edit the hosts file. The end result will look like this: localhost nakedchicks.com hotgilfs.com randygrannies.com

Maybe this add-on for Firefox?

I don't have a Mac, so not much help there; and Firefox uses the windows host file to block websites on a PC.
