Unfortunately i work in a school and the children install firefox on a memory stick and run it directly from it. so unstalling is not posible.

Set up your firewall so it doesn't allow Firefox to access to the net?

I am intrigued, what harm is there in using Firefox? It is only a browser just like Internet Explorer.

I work in a school so obviously we need to block a large number of site. Our fire wall blocks them when the user is using IE but when they use fire fox it doesn't block the sites. I don't necessarily need them to stop using firefox if there is a way to block the same sites in IE and firefox.

just let them do it, if they were smart enough to get round your censorship methods then they deserve to be able to view what they want.

the little buggers are getting into places you don´t want them to.
Try blocking at the server.

Good Luck
