how to set up plugins default to 'ask activate' or I can modify the option for all

Posted

Firefox plugins have an option "Ask to Activate"/"Always Activate"/"Never Activate", now I have to choose it one by one, how can I set a default to all plugins and change them by selected or batch?

Does this options value in a file? Can I edit it directly?

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

  1. Go to about:config search for plugin.default.state and change its value to:
    • 0 - never activate.
    • 1 - ask to activate.
    • 2 - always activate.

If you want to do this for individual web sites;

Go to the web page. After the page is loading, mouse to the address bar and LEFT click the icon. A window for displaying site information should come up. Select More Information. Then Permissions. Go thru the list. You can manually change the settings as you wish.

I guess that "plugin.default.state " is only work while the add-on installation process? after the add-on installed, it cannot reset all add-on by the value default

You can set the default behavior on the "Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Plugins" page.

You can use a mozilla.cfg file in the Firefox program folder to lock prefs or specify new (default) values.

Place a local-settings.js file in the defaults\pref folder where also the channel-prefs.js file is located to specify using mozilla.cfg.

pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

These functions can be used in the mozilla.cfg file:

defaultPref();	// set new default value
pref();		// set pref, but allow changes in current session
lockPref();	// lock pref, disallow changes

See:
