You can create host entries (address objects) and then create a DENY rule that preceeds all the PERMIT rules for the websites in particular. This approach works for a handful of websites. A better approach would be to purchase and apply a web filtering license to the firewall.

I have the licenses,  I'm not sure where on the menu's to go and setup filtering. Premium Content Filtering Service is one of the licenses.
