Jump to navigation Jump to search

Instead of having to go through all of cb.o/support and finding what needs to be changed (ugh), this page will be an on-going list of changes that need to be made due to checkins since 2.0.

XXX need to correlate this with relnotes (2.1a1, 2.1b1, 2.1b2, 2.1rc), since both fell behind

Hidden Prefs

  • Disabling plug-ins:
    • To disable a plug-in:
      • First find its name: choose “Installed Plug-Ins” from the “Help” menu and look for the name of the desired plug-in in big, bold text, e.g. “Shockwave Flash”.
      • Then visit about:config and set the camino.disabled_plugin_names hidden preference to a unique prefix made up from the start of the plug-in name, e.g. “Shockw”.
      • Additional plug-ins can be disabled by separating the prefix strings with semicolons (;).
    • The plug-ins are disabled immediately in any and all windows and tabs.
