    This will give a Firefox-style warning message whenever a YouTube video is suspected of being a rickroll. You can then choose whether or not you still want to watch it.

    What about internet is serious business. I'd say that's far worse than youtube.

    I was never bothered by RickRoll.. it's easy to detect just by looking at most links [​IMG]
    Most of the times I click anyway just cause I like the song XP

    I think the real givaway here is that it's a youtube link and guess what! You can't get firefox addons from youtube pages!


    Chuck: I grabbed this and then went to the rickroll link bonemonkey so helpfully supplied us with to test and it worked (firefox 2) but then I went to internetisseriousbusiness.com and it didn't block the video ): The popups didn't come up but that may be from another addon.

    [edit] though as stated below I can just block it by editing hosts or blacklisting it in OpenDNS.

    I didn't even have to click, and i knew it was a rickroll (from the start). Nice PSed image. It's impossible to detect a rickroll. You CAN however block it if it links to a youtube rickroll or somthing else.

    Are you talking about bonemonkey's 2.0(rickroll) or Chuckstudios because it works perfectly fine... You can either try it or not even click on it... It's not like it will kill you. I used it and tied it out loading up a youtube rickroll page and right before it plays the video, it redirects it to that image at the original post warning you that it's a rick roll. You can either go back to watch it or just close it.
