*timeless gave me advices for English messages in UI. Thanks!

What's this? ...abstract

This is an extension for managing Site Policies, a security feature (, it's like IE's "security zones").

Firefox includes the feature secretly, but there is no UI. This package includes manager GUI and a context menu extension to set the site's policy easily.

Screenshots&Features This package provides following features.

Policy Manager provides a manager dialog to edit security policies. You can open it from the context menu or the "Tools" menu. In the dialog, you can edit the list of sites by drag-and-drop. If you want to add new site to the policy, drop links or bookmarks to the list.

Property dialog of each policy. For each policy you can customize availability of JavaScript, HTTP Cookie, images, popups, and software installation. JavaScript features can be customized.

Mozilla has only one policy setting "default (Global Policy)", at first. To change security settings for websites, we have to make new policy settings like "Trusted Sites".

We can register the website to policies with the context menu item, Policy for This Site, with a simple dialog.
