How to disable a plug-in in Apple Safari version 3

Safari does not allow you to disable plug-ins individually (except Java). You may disable all plug-ins or uninstall them separately, but they will be deleted from all browsers. As far as the plug-in is insecure, its use may be harmful for any browser, therefore you should delete it without any doubt — you can reinstall it as soon as a patch is issued.

Java plug-in is an exception: you can disable it separately.

Choose Help — Installed Plug-ins to view all installed plug-ins.

To disable all plug-ins or Java:


Choose Edit — Preferences.


Click Security icon.


Uncheck Enable plug-ins in the Web content panel to disable all plug-ins except Java.

Uncheck Enable Java to disable Java.
