About QuickJava

QuickJava is a Firefox extension that allows you to easily enable/disable Java, JavaScript, Images, Flash and more directly from the toolbar and/or status bar! (Need help?)
NOTE: QuickJava will become obsolete with the release of FF version 57 and above and will no longer be updated. Please see this thread for additional information.

Attention Linux users!

I am aware of a problem when using the latest version for FF 3.6.  A new version of QuickJava 1.7.1 has been submitted for review and should be available shortly.

Thanks for your patience and support,


  1. Hi, could you also add one icon to enable and disable cookies?

  2. Hello,

    I have the plugin version 1.7.2 and Firefox 3.6.3.

    I have installed my Java plugin as per Sun's recommends here:

    Quickjava does not recognize it is there and the button remains red all the time, yet the Java plugin never turns off.

    Do we have a workaround or bugfix for this?

    Thank you!

  3. Please read this post:

    I will be unavailable for at least a week but will try to help when I return if that doesn't resolve your problem.

  4. Cheers!

    Yeah, it's not the problem I have :-(

    it's not that the Java doesn't remember or turn on, it never turns off. The QuickJava button doesn't toggle at all (it shows off, but Java is still on. I can click on it until the cows come home, it stays red and Java remains on).

    Have a good trip!

  5. Have you tried all the steps listed on that page? If not, please do so. If you have two Java plugins that have the name "Java" and ("Platform" or "Plug-in") then that might be causing your issue, you should only have one installed. Also please make sure that your Java is up to date. Please try the steps listed in the other post and respond over there if you are still having problems. Thanks

  6. Any chance that you can add support for the IcedTea-Web Plugin [1]? It's a Free Software plugin that runs Java applets. It's the default plugin in a large number of Linux distributions.

    Simply changing the regex for detecting Java is sufficient:
    case this.qj_J:
    return /((^| )java.*(platform|plug-?in)|icedtea.*plug-?in)/i;
