This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions seeking product, service, or learning material recommendations are off-topic because they become outdated quickly and attract opinion-based answers. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve. Share your research. Here are a few suggestions on how to properly ask this type of question." – random
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

FYI the reason it's missing may have something to do with the fact that all of the download/mirror sites have been reported for malware. –  Tog Jan 3 '11 at 17:30

I haven't tried it before, but check out Optimize Google, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/52498/. Seems to have the feature you are looking for:

Filter spammy websites from search results


Another Reference: http://ask.metafilter.com/171637/Can-I-block-eHow-pages-from-appearing-in-my-Google-search-results

There is also an extension for Chrome that lets you set a "Personal Blocklist": https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/nolijncfnkgaikbjbdaogikpmpbdcdef

Alas, the addon has been removed by it's author. –  Jeroen May 18 '12 at 13:07

You may not need an add-on anymore. Google seems to be adding this feature.

There used to be a feature where you could promote results you like to the top and remove ones you don’t, but that seems to be gone, and this one is different. –  Synetech Mar 11 '11 at 20:27

Would this do?

This Extension allows you to create, use and manage your own Google Custom Search Engines right from within Firefox.

Once you create these engines you decide which websites are covered and which not, how they rank and so on. If you don't change anything, your Google Custom Search Engine will be more or less a normal Google Search.

You can integrate your own favourite search engines into Google using customizable refinements - so, if you would for example like to search craigslist from within google with just a single click, go ahead and integrate it if you wish so.

Another new option is to add rewrite refinement labels - these can for example be used to exclude all shopping related searchterms from a search - with a single click from your Google Custom Search results.

Once created, the Google Custom Search Engines can be used by anyone - no login required. They can easily be integrated into your own website or blog.
