How to Set Up Firefox Parental Controls

Mozilla Firefox is an internet browser available for computer and mobile devices, but it doesn't come with any built-in parental controls. Not to worry! You can add protection —like blocking sites — with apps like Bark and Apple Screen Time.

How to block websites on Firefox with Bark

Bark is your best option if you’d like to be able to block any website and tons of different categories of content — like adult websites, gaming, social media, and much more. That means you don’t have to know all of the potentially worrisome sites by name! 

  1. If you’re a Bark user, head to your dashboard and find your child’s profile. If you aren’t yet, no worries! Head to and sign up for a free, one-week trial.
  2. From your dashboard, select Settings and then Parental Controls.
  3. Here, you can review the rule sets you’ve scheduled.
  4. Scroll down until you see Screen time rule sets and select the rule set currently applied.
  5. Toggle the app or site to Blocked. You can block entire categories of sites or individual URLs.
  6. Repeat these steps for any other screen time rule sets you’ve scheduled.
