block certain websites in konqueror

Hi -

I have set up Firefox so that access to certain web sites (that I waste a lot of time on, for example) are blocked until a certain time. However, I am still able to access these sites using Konqueror. Is there a way to block these web sites in Konqueror as well? Thanks.

You could always add the sites to your /etc/hosts file , that would block them in any browser.

Yes, I do suppose that is a possibility, but wouldn't that completely block them altogether? I have Firefox configured with GreaseMonkey to block a number of sites until a certain time. BUT...after that time, I'd like to be able to view them. (This way I focus on homework instead of checking basketball scores all the time).

What I am looking for is a way to completely block these sites in Konqueror, but not affect how Firefox deals with them.

Brute-force solution: install proxy on your box, make it serve only your box from different ports, and make it filter different sites on different ports. Needless to say that your browsers will use different ports of proxy. I guess that running 3proxy ( ) with two copies of "proxy" in configuration file (with different ACLs) will do.
