How do I block certain URLs in FF?

How do I block websites in FF? Are there any reliable add-ons?

Examples:

www.badsite.com (blocking individual sites and/or URLs)
*porn* (blocking sites and/or URLs containing certain words)

I have found an add-on called BlockSite (hxxps://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/blocksite/?src=ss). It works but I'm not sure about the developer's reputation. His website (wips.com) has a poor reputation according to WOT.

Thanks for your help and suggestions in advance.

Not firefox either but agree with above, a host file can block individual url's »winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm

Thanks for your suggestions. The add-on mentioned by art above is pretty close to what I'm looking for. Will give it a try. Thanks for all your suggestions.

You could also use OpenDNS services to block beyond the browser/computer for both categories as well as white list/black list.
