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?)

QuickJava 1.7.5 Released (1.7.3 with bugs fixed)

The newest version has been released.

Please note, users may need to re-configure their toolbar buttons, I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

1.7.3 Added support for Proxy, regular expressions are customizable (usually for linux/mac users) in the options and an updated icon set.

This is great news for Linux and Mac users so they do not have to modify the source code to get the Java/Flash and SilverLight components working if they are not using a compatible provider.

Proxy was added as a request, it will turn the proxy off and then return the value to the previously selected value, whatever it was, when you turn it back on.  If proxy is turned off before the first time QuickJava is running it will not know which option to turn it on to and will default to "Use System Proxy Settings".

The icons are now a simple transparent image with a background color set by CSS, if this does not turn out to be problematic then I hope to make the button colors user configurable in a future release.

Any extension that tweaks the look of the status bar (such as Status-4-Evar) may be incompatible with this extension.  It is their responsibility to properly behave with any extension that they interact with and I they should be notified of the problem.  Since it was easy enough to make my extension compatible, I have done so.  Unfortunately I can not promise future compatibility but I will try, within reason, to maintain this functionality.

If you have any problems, 1.7.2 is compatible with FF 4.x and you can revert to that (if you don't know how, or have issues with it complaining about not being compatible with your firefox version: google is your friend)
