Eliminating the Flash nag

Postby Tranas » Sat Nov 30, 2013 2:38 am

I constantly get the "adobe flash player is required to display some elements on this page" yellow bar bs.
What is the fix to get rid of this annoyance?
TIA

example site ?
go to chrome://plugins and see if flash player is installed
if not, go to
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?no_redirect
(uncheck mcaffe stuff ...)
and install it (flash for non-IE browsers)

In the event is was not crystal clear in the initial post - I am not interested in installing flash and do not want to be constantly reminded that so many sites choose to use it.

I want to *turn-off* the nag. Not install Flash.

I was hoping there was something similar to the Firefox solution - placing a check-mark in a box to stop the annoyance.

well, it's not possible
see the chromium bug a user opened 1 year ago:
https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issu ... ?id=143635

(if you dont use any plugin it seems you can use a workaround: start your iron with the parameter

Code: Select all

--disable-plugins
)

Well, actually, it is possible - just that those writing the code are not interested. Thanks for the input. I had seen the chromium group posts, and the result over there is clear.

However this is an Iron forum, hopefully monitored by Iron coders. "The browser of the future - based on the free Sourcecode "Chromium" - without any problems at privacy and security"

... so I figured they would have more of an interest in eliminating this sort of thing - certainly not interested in nagging/forcing you to install what is arguably one of the biggest security risks in a browser.

YMMV

Bump.

The only plugin I want to disable is Flash. What are my options?

I only want to disable the Flash plugin not other plugins. So what to do?

I use Adblock and also FlashBlock ( https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... bcaignabnl )
Feel free to give them a shot.
There are also others like FlashFree etc.

Good luck

"C:\Program Files\SRWare Iron\iron.exe" --disable-plugins

doesn't work. Iron doesn't start at all.
