This feature is supposed to block valid URLs. What you have entered there is plain invalid, the only fault I see here that it lets you enter such stuff there.

You are not using the feature as intended. It blocks HTTP only and the only valid input there takes a valid URL where the scheme is http:// - unfortunately the input validation/sanitation fails when you enter a glob * character at the start. (Also fails for other cases as I tried but that is irrelevant here.) What it is supposed to do is to prepend http:// to whatever you enter there, as you can check when you input something that does not start with *.

this avast feature causes youtube videos to crashed

Kindly post screenshots documenting the exact errors you get when trying to play YT videos and you what you mean by "causes youtube videos to crashed" - since after this whole (rather unproductive) conversation I have zero idea about what your problem actually is about.

I see now keep this avast feature turnwd, will also block the icq access
Are some features of avast "crazy"?

Which feature again? If you mean the URL blocking, as said, stop sticking invalid junk there. The only valid input is one that starts with http://

I hope you can understand my error now
With this feature of avast turned on this happens, disable it and videos will work
This problem just happens with gc

Eh... I still do not understand WHERE are you blocking such stuff in avast.  ::) ???

I think that he likes YouTube videos featuring keygens and cracks ;D Those pages often contain links that haven't been caught by Google yet (and they're slow). In the meantime when Avast scans those pages, the networkshield or the webshield block them 8)

No idea what he likes, this thread is like, ugh...  :-X ::)

The executive resume of this thread:

1/ The OP needs to fix his Site Blocking list so that everything there starts with http://
2/ Avast needs to fix the input validation so that it doesn't let people enter random crap when they start their input with a wildcard (*,?)
3/ Additionally, it also prepends http:// when you have already specified a scheme there, so e.g.

Code: [Select]
ftp://foo.example.com ends up like
Code: [Select]
http://ftp://foo.example.com
4/ The help file could do with some help wrt valid input and more verbose description of the feature as well.

FWIW, I've entered the lines below into Site Blocking

*facebook.com*
*twitter.com*
*fbcdn.net*
*fbcdn.com*

and they work perfectly.  If I click on a Facebook or Twitter link, or enter http://www.facebook.com in the browser, I get the
avast! Web Shield Warning
Site Blocked
   

avast! has blocked access to the site (based on a user-defined list of blocked URLs).

Yeah, they do, however they give completely false impression that the URL will be blocked regardless of the protocol used. It will only be blocked for http:// - you can check this by going to https://www.facebook.com/. Similarly, FTP will not be blocked either. Also, your example actually make sense, while the OP's list does not. I guess he thinks avast! is doing some content filtering, well no it doesn't, it only checks the URL.

yeah of course they work, as avast has just to add http://etc... to them and the URLS are complete ;D try adding just "facebook", and see what happens.

Copying and pasting https://www.facebook.com/ into Site Blocking doesn't work, either.

Avast changes it to http://https://www.facebook.com/* when the next entry is selected in Site Blocking, so it still doesn't block.  Evidently aVast site blocking is severely crippled.
