Any parent will know that giving their children access to the internet is a double-edged sword. Access to the world’s biggest free library is invaluable, but there are plenty of unpleasant corners of the web that young eyes are best shielded from. If you’re using Windows 8, Family Safety can be used to lock down your kids’ accounts.
Does this impact Firefox or only IE?
According to Mozilla support, it does work, though I have not personally tested it.
Parental controls built-in in Windows Vista/7 allow you to prevent
children from using programs such as browsers. In addition, web
filtering software lets you block websites or filter website content
in Firefox or any other browser.
Great question, btw.
