Advanced Users: ClickToPlay (Beta)

While developing the current version of QuickJava (2.0.3) I played a bit with the "ClickToPlay" functionality in Firefox.  For those that don't know about this functionality, it basically disables Flash/Java/SilverLight but  when a page tries to use one of them you get the option to click on the element to enable it for just that one element.

I was unable to get it working in time for the release.  Since then I discovered the functionality was not working because I didn't turn on an option in Firefox that was needed.  However, the functionality is still in the program, just hidden, so for the advanced users I present to you a quick guide on how to use it.
