Blocking Google Images

For whatever reason, I cannot block Google images or video thumbnails. It works on Bing and other search engines but not Google. I have no problem blocking Google.com but the problem is is it blocks gmail which is where my email is. How do I block google images and thumbnails? Isnt there a place I can go to specifically type in "Block google images" or will that block all of Google including gmail?

Thanks for the help!

Re: Blocking Google Images

Try going to images.google.com and selecting "revert" in the Pluckeye menu. That should turn the images off. If not, use the "history" button to block images.google.com. That should still let you get to mail.google.com, and the images for gmail are turned on by default with Pluckeye.

If you can still see Google images after reverting, please report back with your OS and Pluckeye version so we can look in to that.

Thank you.

Re: Blocking Google Images

Those options did not work.
It is a Mac OS 10.14.6
The pluckeye is version 0.98.14 I believe if thats what you mean.

Actually, the best way to help Jon see what is going on would be to follow the directions on this page and send him the resulting file:

Re: Blocking Google Images

I did all that then it asks for a password. And it does not allow me to type anything in for the password.

Re: Blocking Google Images

I believe the root problem is lack of knowledge about 2 things:

1. Pluckeye > History

2. pluck export | grep google.com

This combo is rather user-unfriendly, I admit.  I am trying to improve the interface, but it will be awhile.  Hopefully we can document how to use the History button and command-line fu.

For Windows users:

pluck export | findstr google
pluck export | findstr facebook
pluck export | findstr youtube
etc.

For macOS and Linux users:

pluck export | grep google
pluck export | grep facebook
pluck export | grep youtube
etc.
