Quickjava Quick Help

Welcome to the QuickJava Help and FAQ page.

QuickJava is an easy way to enable/disable many features of Firefox with a configurable tool to help meet your needs.  QuickJava was designed to be lightweight and easy to use with minimal configuration, it was not designed to be as extensive as NoScript, so it does not support features such as Whitelist/Blacklist for sites.  QuickJava simply modifies the Firefox settings for the following items:

JS - JavaScript
J - Java
F - Flash
SL - SilverLight
C - Cookies
I - Images
A - Animated Images
CS - CSS/Style Sheets
P - Proxy

If you're not sure what any of these features means, please use Google.

By default the QuickJava extension installs to the Addon bar, if you have disabled the status bar you can customize your toolbar (right click on the Home button and select 'Customize') by dragging the icons that you want anywhere within the existing Firefox toolbars.  When using the 'Customize' option you can put the icons in any order you like.  The icons change from blue (enabled) to red (disabled).  If a button is gray then it was unable to determine the status and the plugin may be missing or you may need to customize the options to help QuickJava find your plugin, more details below.

You can get to the options page by right clicking on any icon and selecting "Options".  In the options page you will see options to hide any of the icons within the Addon Bar, some helpful links, some advanced options (helpful for users on Linux or other operating systems not using the standard Java, Flash or SilverLight plugins) and an option to Reload Page On Change.  If you need help with Regular Expressions in the advanced options, please use Google.

Version 2.0 has added a lot of features/options, for more information on those please visit that page at: http://quickjavaplugin.blogspot.com/2013/09/quickjava-20.html

It's important to note that QuickJava simply changes settings within the existing Firefox environment.  Everything you can do with QuickJava you could do elsewhere in Firefox, but it will take you a few clicks.  Keep in mind that changing a setting, such as 'Cookies' from On to Off does not do any other action, such as clearing the cookies already stored, you will need to go do that manually if you wish to clear them.

If you are still having problems please follow the steps in this post to determine if it is a problem with QuickJava or something else:

If you enjoy QuickJava I would appreciate a 5 star review (using the 'Where to get it' link at the top right).  Please use the 'Contact Me' link to submit bug reports, submitting bug reports in a review is against the review policy.
