:whistling: Is there a way to block certain sites from being accessed from my computer...such as myspace or another favorite time waster?

I run mozilla right now, but it's an old version. I also have Internet Explorer on my computer, but it's probably an old version.

I see a newer version of Mozilla is available. If I download it do I need to uninstall the version I'm using right now?

Thanks in advance!

The new Browser should install over the old one. There is a way to ban websites by putting their I.p address in a .txt file

Hi:

I would update any browser I use on the Internet as my default browser. I keep old versions to use in Web design work. My Firefox was updated today on an automatic basis.

As to banning any sites. Yes, you can set whether a browser blocks those you listed or any sites. Firefox has several settings from Tools>Options menu. Just select the tabs and ban those sites from cookies, popups, even images. You didn't specify which Mozilla browser you have, but it should be similar choices. Internet Explorer can also block sites.
