I am wanting to lock down websites for my children, and wanted to know if I can do this via Adblock. I saw where there is a listing for Site Blocking/ Whitelisting.

Is it possible do set it to block all sites except the ones I approve?

Like Disney, Nickelodeon, etc.

You can do what you want, but it's very easy to get around the blocks (At least for now). You'd probably be better off using something such as "Netnanny" or using your own "hosts" file to set up your PC the way you want.

um... too bad firefox doesn't have lock down settings like IE, because you can restrict IE to certain websites only, unless i'm mistaken and there's an extension that does this if i recall.
