Instantly disable, enable, Java, JavaScript, Flash in Firefox with QuickJava

News No Comments »

If your Firefox browser is running slow due to various add-ons installed, then here comes QuickJava to the rescue. QuickJava allows users to enable and disable Java, JavaScript, Cookies, Stylesheets, Image Animations, Flash, Silverlight, Images and Proxy from the toolbar. This is great for increasing security or decreasing bandwidth.

Usually, if we want to disable Adobe Flash, then one has to navigate to the Add-ons page and wait for the Adobe Flash player to load. Once you see all the add-ons loaded completely, then switch to plugins and look for Adobe Flash Player, and click on the enable or disable option to turn that plugin on/off.
