Is there any way that I can disable all scripts, images, and file downloads on websites that Web of Trust marks as unsafe (according to my settings)?

I am using Firefox 8 (64-bit) on Windows 7.

Woah! Firefox 8! Do you mean IE 8 or FF 5? –  Windos Jul 11 '11 at 4:34
    
Firefox nightly. They just switched to 8 yesterday. Trying to catch up to Chrome I guess... –  Soumya Jul 11 '11 at 4:37
    
Well then I'm not sure (although I'm not sure in release FF either.) Sure someone will know though! –  Windos Jul 11 '11 at 4:40
    
I can confirm this: ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk –  DragonLord Jul 11 '11 at 6:39
    
Jesus, at this rate, we'll have Firefox v99 by December! –  Breakthrough Jul 11 '11 at 10:41

You could add the list of unsafe hosts to your hosts file. Here's an example.

I did that. I think I took the list from that example, as well as Spybot's. But there are way too many sites that WOT blacklists for me, so it would be easier to disable everything in the browser instead. –  Soumya Jul 11 '11 at 4:40
    
I looked around the WOT site and it doesn't look like there's a way to retrieve the list of blacklisted sites. You might want to request this feature for the WOT extension. –  danhersam Jul 11 '11 at 4:51
    
That's a good idea. Doing it now... –  Soumya Jul 11 '11 at 4:59
