#StackBounty: #firefox #browser #internet #html #hosts Can I block HTML elements system-wide?

Bounty: 100

I know there is a hosts file that allows me to block entire domains.

0.0.0.0 blockthissite.net
::      blockthssite.net

I’d like to block particular elements for a website.

I can do this today with one of a variety of ad blocking tools, like uBlock Origin. It will only work on the browser that I set up the rule with for the ad blocking tool and, even then, it’s really easy for someone to get around the rule by disabling the extension.

Is there a hosts file or something more system-wide that I can do to block HTML elements on my Mac?

For instance, I’d like to block the footer page on this popular website from every browser.

www.amazon.com###navFooter

I’d like to administer this across an individual computer. I have a pi hole, but that only works with domains and doesn’t have information on the html elements. For why is this a concern, I’d like to consistently block some html elements across browsers

editor’s note: This question was closed in an earlier thread, and then the person who closed it failed to provide a reason or a remedy to make the question better. I did my best to provide the details they were seeking, but it’s impossible for me to know for sure because they failed to engage in dialog. I let them know that I would repost this question in the comments.
