QuickJava 0.5 for FF 3.6 by xxhatred

I have put an updated version in for review thanks to xxhatred for doing the updated. I only wish I had seen his review before I started spending time working on the update.

Thanks for the patience and the help. :)


  1. Yes , but where is the download
    of that new version 0.5 ????

  2. No script is regularely updated, a bit too much...

  3. You can temporarily download 0.5 until it's posted here:

    @Author / Doug? :
    With the way I made the Java change, you should easily add a Flash disable/enable option if you're interested. I saw some people requested that.


    var quickJava_flashRegEx = /// ? check for Shockwave Flash / Adobe Flash Player etc.

    function quickJava_toggleFlashEnabled(onOff) {
    quickJava_SetPluginEnabled(quickJava_flashRegEx, onOff, "Flash");

    function quickJava_isFlashEnabled()
    return quickJava_GetPluginEnabled(quickJava_flashRegEx);

    however, in the PrefObserver a check for when the plugins are changed should be added to detect when flash is enabled/disabled
    there should ideally be one for java too, but I didn't add that and relied on the old security setting be changed


  4. Bertrand, it will be available on the usual location as soon as it is approved:


    You may be able to use this link if it's not locked down to the developer only:

    You can also use xxhatred's link.

    NoScript is a different author that apparently has more time on his hands than I do or prioritizes it differently. If you feel that extension is a better match for your needs, please feel free to use it.

    xxhatred: again, thanks for the help. I will add a request for a some more images to the images part of the post and see if I can find some time again... without having to be stuck in bed sick, haha.
