Block yourself from any website at certain times of the day.
This plugin allows you to be more productive, and it doesn't waste your time while doing so. You can with ease dictate the time you want to be blocked from a website, and even allow yourself in only on weekends so you don't unblock yourself, and "forget" to block yourself again! Feature suggestions are encouraged, but I will only implement features which makes this plugin simpler to use.

I used it to block FB, Twitter, and various news sites that can turn into timesinks during working hours, as I'm unfortunately low on discipline sometimes. There's one big bug, however. Let's say you block Facebook, but then you want to temporarily disable the blocking for a day, so you do. However there's no way to re-block the site - the icon completely goes away when you load that domain so you can't restore the setting. Or at least, I can't locate the means to do so. I would love to give a donation if this problem can be fixed. Basically the address bar icon should persist even if you have disabled the block for the domain.

Hi there, I was able to time block Facebook, but I needed to have it temporarily visible again so I de-selected the "enable" checkbox. However, I can't restore the block because the Time Blocked icon does not appear in the address bar anymore when I load Facebook. I suspect this is a bug. Not sure if deleting and reinstalling the extension will work, plus I don't want to lose all my other settings. Please advise! Thank you so much, this is a really great extension.
