Also, provide a blacklist function so that users can manually have more sites blocked, and a whitelist function to manually unblock specified paywall sites. This provides more power to the user to determine what content is provided and what is not.
Exactly. Just looking for that exact setting; can't find it, probably doesn't exist. I will not pay for news when it available everywhere for free, it is a stupid concept. If the ad is sponsored or charges a fee for continued use then I would like to block it. That has no relevance to me and I would prefer not to even see it.
Allow us to hide websites from Pocket
I honestly find it really hard to believe that this hasn't been suggested yet. Especially since I thought Mozilla was a pioneer of giving users control and access to their online experience. SMH.
Anyways, with as many websites as there are behind paywalls or who spew far right disinformation, and even just my own personal choice not to want to see any political articles at all for my own mental health when I'm looking at Pocket, we should be able to hide entire domains from being suggested in Pocket.
Here are the reasons I can think of on why this is able to benefit users:
Anyways, I hope that others agree. I would love to use Pocket, but I absolutely cannot unless I can control what I see in this way.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
Agree..also add an icon to pocket stories that show whether you must subscribe or pay before you waste time clicking on an article.
Add icon to pocket story frame that denotes whether you need to pay or subscribe to read the rest of the article. As someone stated before, it's a waste of time to pay for a story where you may otherwise get for free somewhere else.
Create option to stop Pocket from displaying paywalled content
It's so annoying to run into this. Please set a checkbox that will let us stop this behavior.
Pocket filter lists
I use Firefox across multiple platforms (Linux, MacOS & Android) and i quite enjoy Pocket articles which are suggested - like to start my day off by learning something new.
However, something that has increasingly been annoying me is some sites that rope you in, then only allow you to read the first paragraph of an article as the rest is behind a paywall (in particular: NYTimes, TheAtlantic, etc). Not Mozillas fault i know, but i would like option to filter these - a lot of the time the content looks interesting but when i get to the site i can't see it without subscribing (and i don't always look at the site the article lives on). I have been clicking "Dismiss" for months but they aren't going away, so please can you look into including a "Block Site" button?
Oh yeah, thats exactly the same! My bad for not searching first, apologies 🙂
