  • Firefox 58 (portable if that makes a difference), didn't disable my legacy extensions. Most of them didn't work, but this extension inserted the image and java script options in the settings menu (only visible while using the search box).

    Toggling the settings back and forth does work! Just make sure to not disable the extension by accident, because you won't be able to re-enable it.
  • Thanks! it is awesome that there are someone with enough sanity to bring back one of the most cool features of ever, it is insane that this feature was removed from Firefox is settings just because there are stupid people in this world, Thanks! for one of the most useful addons of ever!
    Suggestion #1: it isn't clear when javascript/images are enabled/disabled because the change in the toolbar icons are subtle.
    Suggestion #2: new feature: disable css

    Thanks again! :)
  • Is it possible to make this work with FF 57+, and if so, do you plan to do so?

    Developer response

    I'm afraid I have no plans to do anything in the WebExtensions vein of development. I haven't looked too much into it, but I'm fairly certain that most of this extension's functionality is impossible in the new framework.
  • Re-adds a bunch of features that Mozilla stupidly removed from Firefox a while ago. I personally use this add-on to toggle the "Disable or replace context menus" option in the advanced JavaScript options. Really comes in handy when a website disables the "View Image..." context menu entry on an image I want to embed in an instant messenger chat to show friends.
  • Dark grey toolbar icons for JavaScript and images in their disabled state are fine, but please make the enabled-state icons bright and colorful. Currently the two states are nearly undistinguishable.
  • Is E10S/Electrolysis support planned?
  • I applaud the efforts of the developer.

    As the developer explains below you need to check from which domain is the website loading it's images. Then it works like a charm.

    Thank you very much.

    Developer response

    I did not write the functionality of whitelisting and blacklisting, I just re-inserted the interface for manipulating it. You have to enter the domain where the image is located, not the site you're visiting. Most websites use a content delivery system or alternate domain for images, so you have to put that in the list instead.
  • I hope an update for this add-on is coming soon. Is this a possibility as sadly it doesn't seem to work just now in Firefox v48+. That's the ONLY reason for the low rating.
  • With the last Beta of Classic Theme Restorer 1.5.2beta6 every thing now works perfectly. Thanks for this great Add-on.
  • SettingSanity (v1.0) restores the Tools>Options>Content, Images & JavaScript options, including the Enable JavaScript>Advanced options where you can disable allowing JavaScript to 'move or resize popup windows', raise or lower windows', and 'disable or replace context menus'.

    Classic Theme Restorer (v1.4.8) hides the Tools>Options>Content, Images & JavaScript options, even when SettingSanity is installed. The options are still there, and their settings are still in effect, you just cannot access or change them without disabling Classic Theme Restorer first. [Firefox v44.0.2]
    I got a reply from the developer when I posted this same info on the CTR page:

    by Aris (Developer) on March 9, 2016 · permalink · translate

    SettingSanity does not like CTRs option "Remember last selected category" for no particular reason. Next CTR version will contain a workaround for this issue, but for now you only have to disable "CTR preference window > Options page/window > Remember last selected category" and restart Fx to be able to use SattingSanity add-ons "Images & JavaScript options" and CTR at once.
  • @Dale Lamar

    The inescapable Classic Theme Restorer brings back boxes for preferences [ Options Page>Open options page in a window ] and add-ons [ Add-on Manager>Old add-on install window ].

    Life would be unbearable without the ability to get Firefox back to greatness. New is for the fools.
  • In Firefox 43 the preferences are now back in a tab instead of the pop-out window; browser.preferences.inContent is set to false. At least the 'sanity' options are still there but having the preferences open in a tab just seems horrible for some reason.

    Is there any chance of fixing this or have they broken it in some way that can't be repaired?

    Anyway, thanks for the great extension!
  • From being ridiculously slow and laggy, my FF browser is now working flawlessly and the speed improvement is incredible! Best add-on I've ever installed! Thanks a lot! Great work!
  • This extension doesn't work in the new tabbed preferences in FF 38 but it still does in the old preferences window. You can switch to the old window if you set browser.preferences.inContent to false in about:config
  • This add-on needs an update. It clashes with Play DRM Content (check box doesn't show) under Options-Content (Firefox 38). In view of the developer's reluctance to keep up with new Firefox versions, I have no high hopes. Too bad. Removed for now.

    Developer response

    I am aware of the DRM checkbox issue, but it's not as complicated or annoying as the in-content preferences tab which will be replacing the Options window - It's lacking some vital element attributes (like classes or IDs on many sections) making customization literally impossible. I've updated all my other extensions pretty recently, but SettingSanity's update is going to take some time... or may be stuck in the old options window permanently.
  • Gracias por regresar las opciones que sin razon alguna han sido removidas en las ultimas versiones de firefox.
  • Thank goodness most of the developers' tomfoolery can be undone by add-ons such as this!

    I wish the developers would stop trying to make FF a browser that only simpletons want to use.
  • 開発者の「解説」に同意します。
  • Originally, Firefox was the very configurable browser for power users. However, it seems that in recent years Mozilla management has lost the plot and keeps removing features or UI elements and dumbing it down because "your mom doesn't get it". Hooray for add-on developers who come to the rescue.
  • The difference between Netscape and Firefox is that the first will start 3 seconds after the computer wakes up and 3 seconds before Windows (for example) is operating, while the second waits for Google to update the service and eventually triggers the Adobe update as well.

    Now because everyone "got the picture" as from where (Google geolocation) to where (Adobe service history) was your computer going in the past ... role-playing an open minded end user would probably require a Java permission update ... Ab initio this is unloaded within an ISP server permissions update as well ... Performing "YES" at this point will leave the ISP servers at free disposal on every next node up in the network tree ... From now a single phone is enough to keep track of your computer activity or even less than a phone ... a satellite :)

    Wish you knew that Google's Image search engine is the primary. Google's Earth kept coming upfront, till AT&T managed to make it in the first place :)

    I know you don't like me :)
  • Very useful addon as it restores a few Javascript options Mozilla felt the need to remove. Among other things it meant you could no longer stop sites from blocking the right-click context menu.

    Unfortunately this addon doesn't quite work properly out of the box with FF 29 as it prevents tabs being placed in the titlebar, which just wastes screen real estate. If you have Classic Theme Restorer for FF 29 you'll notice that with Settings Sanity enabled the 'tabs in title bar' option cannot be selected.

    The dev isn't interested in updating for FF 29, but this issue can be fixed by going to about:config and adding a new string with the name 'browser.tabs.defaultDrawInTitlebar' and a value of 'true'.

    Response to dev's response: thanks :)

    Developer response

    Due to all the issues with the DrawInTitlebar fix for hiding the tab bar if only one is visible, there will be a checkbox added to the Options for that setting in the next ver.
  • Thank you SO much for making this!
  • One of the more important add-ons for network client security. It would seem like the Mozilla engineers are pushing their heads deeper up their behinds by claiming not many users actually disable JavaScript. This is a bold faced lie and has been repeated multiple times throughout bug reports and documentation.

    Keep up the great work and let's hope they learn from Internet Explorers mistakes throughout the decades rather than play ignorant like they have been doing.

    @RealityRipple: Do you know the url to the Moz stats for this add-on? It seems to be lost on this AO page again. I hope to reference it in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=986886 TIA

    There have been about 35,000 downloads, and approximately 8000 daily users.
  • Thank you for restoring sanity to Firefox. Removing these features was an insane idea, and Firefox's upcoming Australis is even more insane. To bring sanity back to your browser, use SettingSanity and (when Firefox 29 is released to Stable) Classic Theme Restorer.
  • Simply a great addon. Thank you!
