Are there any good free ones? I really really really need to black list some words. I don't care for links and URLs as long as I can just black list the words.

You probably have checked this one out. FoxFilter :: Add-ons for Firefox

 

QUOTE: FoxFilter can be accessed through your Preferences menu. The tabbed interface is very easy to read, and walks you through each security preference so that you don't miss a beat. The program comes preset with obvious keywords that would raise a red flag. You can edit the list and add your own keywords and Web sites. Likewise, you can add keywords that you want the program to ignore. Specific Web sites can be added to the list with ease. All of your settings can be password protected.

 

FoxFilter helps block content for essentially any user-defined Web site or criteria. You can quickly and easily block content for an entire site (e.g. Playboy) or enter custom keyword filters (e.g. videos, movies, images, pornography, nudity, gambling, explosives, etc.) that will be used to help block content for any site that contains these keywords. There are many pornography-related keywords already included! (see Filter Keywords below for more info). FoxFilter is designed to work with Firefox on Mac, Linux and Windows and includes password-protected settings and security features to help prevent it from being bypassed, uninstalled or disabled. A password recovery feature is also available.

All of the filtering features are still available to you free of charge! However, due to the volume of support requests pertaining to forgotten passwords as well as other support costs that we incur, security features are now only available to registered users. A small support fee is required to obtain a registration code. The FoxFilter Team has spent hundreds of hours in development, maintenance and support of FoxFilter. We are very proud of our product and are very happy that is helping protect children, teens and adults from inappropriate content on the Internet. We're confident that you will agree that FoxFilter is the most simple and effective Firefox Add-on for helping filter inappropriate content.

 

Filtering Keywords

Per Microsoft, the link below provides a list of keywords that are common in bulk, unsolicited, and adult e-mail. These same keywords can also be used as a starting point for Web site content filtering.

Okay. I got this working somehow but not how I want it.

Is there anyway I can make certain things not appear at all? Like I wanna read some entertainment news but never see anything with any kardashian or miley cyrus. Right now I have those blocked but I still see the headlines and YT videos. The pages are only blocked when I click on the articles or videos and they open in a new page. I don't even wanna see any titles/headlines with those names. How I can do that?

I have never seen a way to do this.  It pretty much violates the whole idea of what a web search is supposed to do.

 

I understand what it is you want to do, and even why you, personally [for any you, personally], might want to do it.  However, that's not what search engines are designed to do nor web browsers.

 

Safe search features can filter a broad class of content, but even they're not perfect at what they do and what you're looking for seems to be "laser focused."

The only other thing I can suggest is using the search exclusion operator for the terms you do not wish to have appear, e.g.:

 

famous kims -kardashian -"jong un"

I don't search for those terms. I just go to read the news or go on yt and they're there. On yt I watch certain channels that do entertainment news so all of their videos are always recommended to me even the ones that contain the names I've blocked. I know now, the blocking doesn't work like that.

And on news sites, I also never search for anything related or associated with those blocked terms so there's no way to avoid them. I just get super irritated by just seeing the names in titles, without reading any articles or when I just see a pic or a video thumbnail.

Oh well, I guess that's that then. Thanks though.

At one time a year or two back Yahoo actually allowed you to decide what was on your news reader. I, like you, didn't want to see all those

KK fake news items. The BBC is a really good news source....sans the KimK promotional crapola.
