Protect Firefox From Your Idiot Siblings

Have young children? Idiot siblings? Parental units that don't know the difference between a jpeg and a potentially virus infected .exe file? Then you need the Public Fox Firefox Add-On for when you let them use your computer.

Public Fox can lock downloads, so no one can download anything while you are away. It also can lock add-ons, so that no one can change your extensions options, install, or uninstall them. It rounds out its protection by locking down all the Firefox options, the "about:config" page and even stops the addition/removal/options of bookmarks!

Further protection is guaranteed with an optional filter on file extensions that you do not want downloaded (e.g. .exe, .scr, .vbs, .bat, etc).

When you want to use any of the locked features, all you have to do is enter the password that you set in the Public Fox options.
