how do you disable both flash AND javascript?

can somebody please help, is it even possible to disable flash AND javascript? why does block flash become greyed out when you block javascript?

flashblock is redundant in current versions right? So instead you will advise me to go to tools->privacy->block flash.

but for this to work, you must have javascript enabled, if you disable javascript, flash becomes enabled. (see youtube for example, try yourself)

why does this happen?

I just want to use this as a basic, simple browser, no funny jscript nonsense, no flash adverts, just simple normal browsing. Is that not possible? opera, chrome, and many more popular browsers have these options built in with a click of a button, but they dont support socks5 which I need.

any ideas? help is much appreciated smiling smiley

(without uninstalling flash from my pc, I need to use it with other browsers)

Go to about:config & set plugin.scan.plid.all to false.

The plugins that You want to use must be in ./K-Meleon/plugins.
They are no more found automatically.

AFAIK that should work with K-Meleon also.

Another way to go is to enable the privacy toolbar and then toggle both java and javascript. Flash can be controlled with the flashblock macro.
