Does anyone know how to prevent uninstalling extensions on Chrome and Mozilla? I want to install an extension that will block some websites. There are some websites that I'm trying to stay away from to slow down my internet addiction and I'm worried that I'll be tempted to uninstall the extension or someone will come along and uninstall them.

You're doing great so far in avoiding some web sites via blocking extensions!
Would you mind sharing which ones you use? I need a couple that work in blocking "advertisement sites".

Actually I haven't installed any yet lol. I wanted to ask this question first before I did install any. I've heard of BlockSite but I gotta find out if there's a way to prevent uninstalling it before using it.

As for advertisement sites, I just use adblocker.

I forgot if I mentioned uBlock Origin in this forum. Anyway, uBlock Origin has lots of settings - maybe go that for now.
I just now remembered this is an old thread; however, I'll leave this post for future readers asking the same question.
