Discussion of features in Mozilla Firefox
14 posts • Page 1 of 1
I already know that the feature was removed because too many basic users broke Firefox by disabling it accidentally.
I know that convenient extensions for Firefox like Noscript and others exists to do it, but I don't trust and don't want to manage yet another extension.
And it seems to me such a basic feature for a web browser that I think Firefox is not complete without it.
So I suggest this :
The permissions system that introduced the feature to block images, cookies or plugins site-by-site is great.
This way would also be an upgrade over the previous situation, because users would have site-by-site control with the option.
And don't tell me basic users would again broke Firefox, because blocking Cookies and Images can broke a website just as well.
I hope that if someone who can do a thing about it read this, he or she would take it under consideration.
You should post this on an official Mozilla-mailing list, not in this forum, which has no relation with Mozilla, and where no Mozilla-devs will read it.
Isn't it of value to post a suggestion here and get comments/suggestions on what should be asked for before submitting a feature suggestion officially?

Thank you, I didn't know about the option being in the developer tools, I didn't scroll down in the advanced section, I learned something today.
I think that's great for the option to be included without third-party extensions.
For posting in a mailing list, I thought about it, but didn't really know in which one since a lot of forum threads around the web give different addresses.
If someone could guide me in the right direction I would gladly post it in the appropriate mailing-list.
Sure, but so are images, cookies and other stuff in the View Page Info, yet they're there to be overridden. The suggestion would be akin to the Yesscript extension. Yeah, you could just install that extension, but the suggestion seems to be a logical extension of what's done with images, cookies, popups and other items in the site permissions.

Similar code can be used to toggle images (allowImages) and plugins (allowPlugins) in a tab.
YesScript. It's light, has no unexpected features, and requires no learning curve (unlike NoScript).
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

I use it to keep Java disabled all the time, except on some specific sites that need it.
or without prompt
It's even possible to define a hotkey for the buttons, you need regularly.
Thanks Manuel. I'm using your PrefBar extension for years (I think since Mozilla Suite 1.0) and just updated to the new 6.3.0 release (seem to have missed it), so thanks for the continued support to keep the extension working. I noticed that you've added Australis support, so thanks for that!
The code I posted above is based on what you use in your extension.
Could you consider to use this code in buttonCommands.js as that will make it possible to only set the width or height?
