Mozilla, not me! to disable plugin check page!

I want this page gone! I did not authorize it! I don't want it! I am not going to hunt down how get rid of it. You fix it or I'm gone... with a post on the Warrior Forum.

You have until Saturday morning, January 19 to get this fixed. There are to many other browsing options to be putting up with this.

Hi,

I'm sorry the plugin-check page is pissing you off in Firefox. Here is a forum thread with some suggestions for how to turn it off: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/939280?esab=a&s=disable+plugin+check+page&r=2&as=s

You mean like hunt down and edit Mozilla application files? Nope!

You mean like hunting down and removing Mozilla files on C:\program files\whatever? Not happening!

Something on the order of Alt->Tools->whatever is fine.

Uhmm... probably not.

I appreciate the effort to try to resolve this issue. I looked at the link but it looks like trial-and-error file surgery. I'm not interested in spending time trying band-aid a symptom that does not fix the problem.

And the real problem appears to be that someone, or a group at Mozilla approved and then included an auto-activated routine with no way to deactivate it. Less that smart!

A little research shows that this has been a problem with many users for several months. This should be as easy to activate and deactivate as plugins.

Thank you for your time.

Re: Mozilla, not me! to disable plugin check page!

Hi,

I completely agree with JoeMobley. I had to roll back adobe flash when firefox 15 came out because there were compatibility issues. Half my addons stopped working as well. I also had to do a fresh install; I only kept my bookmarks, to get firefox and adobe to play well together. I will not be spending 5 hours trying to figure out who’s at fault like I did before.

And firefox has a new thing where they continuously update so no one can keep up, except adobe, who updates even more often. I waited months to go from firefox 2 to 3, I got excited about it, now I’m just tired of it. So no, I will not be updating anything I don’t choose to update, because software companies have a tendency to release first and then try to make everything work later. And this is a perfect example, it is my prerogative to manage my own security needs not yours.

And FYI none of the suggestions that I’ve seen regarding the use of about:config and resetting preferences worked for me. I installed Aion(video game) and it came with a software plugin that I disabled in firefox (i.e. pando web plugin). And that seems to be the primary source of the page poping up for me. If I don’t disable it the page doesn’t appear, if I do disable it, I suddenly get that page. I would have assumed it to be the opposite, but that’s the thing, there are always unforeseen problems, so when you add a new feature regardless of how good your intentions are, you have to allow user to enable and disable it to suit their own needs.

If Mozilla doesn’t stop acting like Microsoft, trying to always force things upon users, I will find another browser.
