New: jPortable Browser Switch 1.0 (enable or disable jPortable's Java browser plugin) Released

Submitted by John T. Haller on January 13, 2013 - 2:17am

logojPortable Browser Switch 1.0 has been released. jPortable Browser Switch allows you to easily enable or disable the browser plugin bundled with jPortable. Note that it will not enable or disable Java detected on the local machine by your browser. It's packaged in PortableApps.com Format so it can easily integrate with the PortableApps.com Platform. And it's open source and completely free.

Update automatically or install from the portable app store in the PortableApps.com Platform.

Features

ScreenshotjPortable Browser Switch allows you to easily enable and disable the jPortable Java browser plugin so that you can continue to use Java with apps like LibreOffice Portable while making Java unavailable to your portable browsers like Firefox Portable and Chrome Portable. This can be useful for security reasons or simple convenience.

Important Note: Even with the jPortable Java browser plugin disabled, your browser may use the local machine's Java plugin if Java is installed. It can be disabled within Add-Ons in Firefox; chrome://plugins within Chrome, Iron, or Chromium; about:plugins within Opera and similar locations in other browsers.

PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format

jPortable Browser Switch is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. It supports upgrades by installing right over an existing copy, preserving all settings. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Platform including the Menu and Backup Utility.

Download

jPortable Browser Switch is available for immediate download from the jPortable Browser Switch homepage. Get it today!

You know what, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life TAKE THE LEMONS BACK! Get mad!! I don't want your lemons; what am I supposed to do with THESE!?

Link

The download link is wrong. it has exe.exe instead of .exe.

Important Note: Even with the jPortable Java browser plugin disabled, your browser may use the local machine's Java plugin if Java is installed. It can be disabled within Add-Ons in Firefox; chrome://plugins within Chrome, Iron, or Chromium; about:plugins within Opera and similar locations in other browsers.

After disabling the Java plugin with the jPortable Browser Switch 1.0 I looked in the Add-On manager of Firefox Portable. But I can't find an appropriate entry "Java (TM) Platform SE 7 U10 10.10.2.18". Therefore it's impossible for me to disable the Java plugin within the Add-On manager, if my browser may use the local machine's Java plugin if Java is installed.

when installed

You can only enable/disable plugins when they are installed.

Aha

Thanks for the tip. It's logical Smiling

another question

Assume both on the local machine as well as in the PA.com menu is installed the Java plugin. Which of the both Java plugins will use Firefox Portable?

Just out of curiosity...

Just out of curiosity... Simply how it works? It changes something from "/APP" directory of each portable-browser?

no

it renames the plugin2 folder inside CommonFiles/Java/bin/ to plugin-disabled so the portable browsers dont find java anymore.

CommonFiles/Java/bin/plugin

CommonFiles/Java/bin/plugin folder is reading by browsers? Other portable apps can read java.. Am I right?

PortableApps.com Browsers

Our browsers have special code within them to find the portable Java plugin and automatically use it. When the directory is renamed, it is not found and won't be used.

jportable browser switch

Hello John,

I ran the switch and it just tells me that jportable was not detected!
I have it installed to D:\MiscPgmsNoInstallNeeded\CommonFiles\Java...
Libre Ofc is installed to D:\MiscPgmsNoInstallNeeded\LibreOfficePortable...

I have removed regular Java from my Laptop due to the warning that came out in January. But do not know why the 'switch' cannot fine the jportable?

I actually ran it and checked it, but it did NOT rename the plugin2 folder.

Tnx a bunch.
Sincerely,
Cindy

Location

It must be installed to D:\MiscPgmsNoInstallNeeded\jPortableBrowserSwitch
