    I don't think there is a way to stop using urls through Firebird.

    Yeah, that would work.
    Start>Run>notepad C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\HOSTS

    Add a new line that looks like this for each site you want to block:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1 aol.com
    127.0.0.1 blah.org
    ...

    If you have a router you can block them through that also .. Atleast with my netgear I can ..
