what are you trying to do exactly??

OTHER people use your computer, and you don't want them to have access to myspace?

what's their level of computer understanding?

- BTW: "Whitelisting" generally, is the OPPOSITE of what you want to do in a situation like this. i just got the FF adblocker myself, i'm still learning it. but to WHITELIST is to allow, or "OKAY" something-- and you want to do the opposite of that. (maybe you meant to say Blacklist, i dunno)

- you might try blocking these:
myspace.com
www.myspace.com
myspace.com/*
etc.

the software's designed for blocking ADS though... there may be a better way to block an entire domain...
