QuickJava (For FF Versions 56 AND BELOW only)

Author(s):



The Mozilla developers could not envision a reason why users would want the main feature of my addon (disable JavaScript) and decided not to provide an appropriate API. This left me with workarounds that would slow down the user's experience on every page request while being more difficult to implement and potentially maintain in the future. Other feature APIs that were going to be implemented without a half-baked work around were not going to be ready in time for me to be able to move over to them. And that's not even getting into the restrictions on the user interface.

Since this would cause QJ to be less user friendly, have less functionality, cause performance degradation and increase the maintenance requirements, I have decided that I will let QuickJava become obsolete with the release of FF57.

It's been a great 12 year run, thank you everyone for your support, bug reports, code submissions and most importantly (to me) your 5 star reviews!

NOTE: FF52 no longer supports Java. There is NOTHING I can do to change this. Please see this page for more details.

Easily turn on or off Java, Javascript, Cookies, Animated Images, Flash, Silverlight, Stylesheets, Proxy and Automatic loading of images from the Toolbar without having to open the Options or Plugins dialog! This is great for users that want a easy control over their bandwidth usage, privacy or general browsing security by blocking scripts, cookies or other functionality.

NOTE: The 64 Bit Version of Firefox may not support Java/Silverlight, this has nothing to do with QuickJava and is not a bug in my extension! Please google for more information.

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION AND DEVELOPER COMMENTS BEFORE REPORTING A BUG!

Usage:
Install the extension and restart your browser to get the QJ Toolbar icons. Configure the options by right clicking on any visible icon and selecting "Options". Customize the toolbar with which buttons you choose and enjoy. It's that simple! There are way more options to play with, for help with those right click any visible icon and select "Help and FAQ".

(Note, if you don't know how to customize the toolbar icons google it)
FF29 removes the Status bar from the bottom, visit http://quickjavaplugin.blogspot.com/2014/04/missing-your-addon-bar.html for more information

Please note that the scope of this extension is NOT as extensive as NoScript, and was not designed to compete with it. This includes whitelisting/blacklisting sites and remembering their settings! If you like NoScript then that's fine and this may not be the extension for you. However this extension is ideal for those who prefer a simpler to use, less invasive interface while still having easier access to the controls.

If you have problems with it working or have any other comments or suggestions, please visit the support homepage for this extension at: http://quickjavaplugin.blogspot.com/

I take great pride in the rating of my extension. Please do not use the rating system as a bug reporting system or a feature request system as that is not it's purpose. If you enjoy and use my extension, please provide an appropriate rating, a contribution or both :) Thanks!
