How can I disable the popup that asks wether I want to download or not a certain plugin required for this site? It is very annoying when you open a page in a tab and suddenly this popup appears out of context. I don't use plugins, so I don't want to be asked each time I visit a plugin-enabled site.

Thanks

You could try to move the Default Plug-In out of your plugins folder. Should do what you want, but I'm too lazy to test it at the moment :wink:

You mean libnullplugin.so ? Oddly, I get prompted only on linux not on windows. is there an entry I can put in user.js?

None that I knew of, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it doesn't exist.

Errr, there were two questions.

I see you've finally acquired an avatar

Oh, sorry :D Yes, libnullplugin.so, which is also called the "plugin downloader plugin", and yes, I finally found a pic on my HD I liked in this format.
