  • As a website developer, I sometimes want to see how a page would behave with and without javascript, css, etc. This works perfectly for that. I think it's ludicrous that someone would give it one star because of its name!
  • Really helpful and easy to use. I would recommend this to everyone.
  • Any chance to a update compatible with FF 3.5?
    This add-on has been 3.6+ compatible since Version 1.6 released on March 6, 2010. If you are still on 3.5, pleaes update to the latest version of Firefox. If you are still unable to install it, some users had to uninstall the old version and re-install the new one, unfortunately this is a problem with Firefox for some users and not anything I could do anything about except to inform the users.
  • I like this addon.
    Please add Flock support

  • It is a wonderful add-on
    I like it very much
  • Please add Flock support, I like this addon
  • Please add Flock support, I like this addon
  • Yes, I'm using this as an alternative to NoScript, which is a major pain in the ass. I block javascript, java, flash and silverlight by default but enabling any (javascript and flash usually) is just one click away.
  • Thanks. Being a newbie, I had a little trouble getting the icons to show but not only is this a great addon, but the provider even supplies a help file for us n00bs to get it running! Thanks for a great addon, I am thoroughly enjoying browsing without all the pornographic ads at the sides and tops of websites! You're a gem.
  • Fast, simple and clean. Thanks for your work on this! I was holding off on upgrading to F3.6 because the Addon (I think it was an earlier version of QJ) to turn JS/J on/off with a click in the statusbar said there was no update available. Today I went looking for something similar, and bingo! Now I have all the advantages of F3.6 and the ability to easily control Java (Mozilla removed the option from Preferences, but that's another story!).
    Hmm, that's odd. It's the same page (check the old versions) so should be detected as an updated version available. Yeah, the change in Java is what made an update required, previously it had been years since I had to update it. Glad you like it. :)
  • Fait ce pour quoi il est crée à la perfection !

    Cela avec un design épurer.
  • Very useful add on in these times of unwanted code infiltrated by major internet companies - please add white list site support and it'll be perfect.
  • Blocked what flashblock didn't, great job. Really need to add whitelist site support, and an easier way of starting an app if you want to use it.
    White/blacklists are outside the scope of this project as explained in the description. I'm not sure how you can only give it 3 stars but say "great job". If I were to rate something with 3 stars I would also remove it from my system. If you agree, I would appreciate if you rated the add-on based on it's current functionality. Thanks.
  • I find QuickJava to be a great addon, really helpful.

    I'd like to make these two suggestions:
    -add the ability of custom keyboard shortcuts (one for Java, another for Javascript, etc)
    -change the color of all the icons to
    gray (instead of blue) when enabled,
    and gray with a tiny bit of red (instead of red) when disabled
    (=similar to the default firefox 'Toggle Javascript' toolbar button)
    Now they attract the user's attention rather much.

    Keep up the good work!

  • I really like QuickJava, but unlike the SL ban button, a ban choice for Java does not persist between FirrFox executions (at least for me). I always like for Java to be "off". It's annoying to have to remember to turn off Java each time I execute FireFox. Otherwise the new version is great.
    Please visit the support website, there is already a topic discussing this and the fix. So far, in all reported cases, it is a Java/Firefox bug, not my extension.
  • Flash, Java,JS,image,SL combination is good idea.
    HOWEVER, I switch back to the older version. Because when I want to run a particular flash in a web page without enabling other flash objects, it was possible in older version with one click on that flash object. In new version, you must enable flash, then reload the page. Otherwise if you click on a particular flash, it says "flash not installed". This is not good compared to the older behaviour.
    "Older versions" did not change flash at all, and you may be using a different extension to block specific flash applications. My extension simply turns it on or off completely, as that is the scope for the entire extension. You can use the new version, hide the flash icon and use your old program still for it's functionality if you wish to do so.
  • Feature Request:
    A single button that will disable all functions. Or the single button would have the option of turning off one, two or all functions and is customizable by the user.

    Example:
    Single button turns off - Images, Java, JavaScript, Flash and Silverlight

    Example 2:
    Single button has a dialogue where the user can select checkboxes next to the items they want disabled when they press the single button. So, if you check off images and flash and then press the single button - only images and flash will be disabled.

    Thank you for a fantastic add-on!
    Try the middle click (scroll wheel pushed down) on any of the icons, and you will find the first example.

    I have considered example 2 being available in future versions but that's depending on my time availability.

  • Thank you for creating this addon! I was looking for an easy way to disable javascript and flash easily without no-script, and this is a lot easier... i just disable everything when im visiting random websites, so im not clickjacked. :)
  • Great tool - thank you!

    Feature request:
    Black list / white list to set default behavior for certain known websites (ex: I'd always have flash ON for hulu and youtube but might leave it off be default for unknown sites etc...)

    Flashblock 1.5.x has the whitelist feature.
    It would be nice to extend to javascript (the most needed one!)
    Thanks!

    As mentioned in the "More info" section of the add-on description, that is outside scope of this project.
  • using FF3.6 on windows, latest Quickjava ver, when I try to customize my toolbar, the QJ toolbar button icons are totally messed up... I took a screenshot:

    is this happening to anyone else? when I disable QJ, the problem disappears... but I need my QJ!!
    This was already addressed in the Developer Comments. I had already submitted a fix but it was waiting for them to review it. The version with the fix has now been made available for you to download. If you feel this has addressed the lack of giving it a 5th star, I would greatly appreciate an updated review :)
  • Good job!
    Should also add the button to disable CSS. But then maybe you should change the name of your addon ;)
    Bye
    I'll look into the CSS suggestion. As far as the name goes, it's a bit tricky... I've considered doing it but a lot of people find it by searching by the name. I'm still trying to decide if it's worth it.
  • Since Flashblock is not getting any upgrade with Silverlight support, could you please make it so we can enable localized files? Sometimes in a website, I knew the top flash icon was for a menu, so I would only enable that one with a simple click, and not the other, which most likely were ads (for example).
    Sorry but that is outside the scope of this project. I simply disable Flash completely, no selectively or "block" the elements on the page. I would recommend using AdBlock Plus.
  • Wonderful add-on. Version 1.6 not only looks great. It does even more than expected. Thanks a bunch!
