Looking for Mozilla filters


Is there anyway to filter internet content for Mozilla? Is there a built-in filter, or is there a patch or package I use somewhere?

Create a UserContent.css file with something like this in it http://texturizer.net/firefox/adblock.html and put it in the chrome folder in your mozilla profile (the hidden .mozilla folder in your home folder). userContent.css can be tailored to block exactly what you don't want to see.

I'm looking to specifically filter questionable content such as pornography. How would I go about using the CSS to do this?

I don't think it's possible to do that with Mozilla. Wouldn't it make more sense to not go to websites that display pornography? You can make particular websites unavailable by manipulating /etc/hosts or you can use iptables

Yes, not going would be the preferred alternative. But my suitemates in the doom think it's rather clever to screw with my computer when I step out of the room for more than five minutes.
