The reason I asked about this Java Toggle or Switch is Proxomitron is because I started researching it. It seems you were the only one who posted in various forum about toggle for flash and Java with this product and no one else..I did see where there was a development switch thing that did not seem to work very well and never seemed to be adopted..so do you have a link that explains/ shows how it works for that filter ?
My fault for Flash starting at youtube with no toggle. I didn't have this filter installed which is just for youtube. I started the thread about it and I don't recall why I never installed either of the two filters posted.
Eventually, there will be a more elegant filter but not official until JJoe's next Sidki filters update maybe the end of this year. JJoe said the toggle at youtube (not other sites) was causing problems so he posted what he uses. I just merged it now to my Proxo filters and went to that same Innocence of Muslims film at youtube on IE 8 and it did not start automatically. There is not the usual looking Proxo toggle but a big fat arrow on the screen that I have to click to get it to start. I can also easily stop the download which I could not do before. I have always gotten a Proxo toggle in a forum like this one where Flash movie is embedded in forum post.

As for java applet toggle, that doesn't work everywhere for me...but it is very difficult for me to test because I have an old version of Java on the host machine and on my virtual machine. Mozilla has disabled Java on my Fx 4 and Fx 10 ESR because on both machines Mozilla feels my Java is too old. The same thing is true for recent versions of Opera. My Java version won't work. So, IE 8 so that is the only browser I can try to test Proxo's Java toggle with.
As for disabling Java in the Control Panel, I was referring to disabling for IE and also for other none ActiveX browsers. That works. But to disable Java for a program you own that uses it, I just let Process Guard stop it from running when called. Process Guard pops up when I start MySpeed software that requires Java and I can stop it right then by not approving it and then PG says the handle is invalid and MySpeed closes without having opened. I am so used to Process Guard asking me if I want to allow something to run that I didn't even think about what one would do if they didn't have a classic HIPS other than simply don't start a Java program you own if Java is suspect.
I didn't find much at TUOPF regarding Java applet toggle. But what I found shows that IE is a bitch to get it to work on. It is such a shame that Paul Laudanski felt it necessary to burn the Official Proxo forum and Sidiki's official forum and two others at Castle Cops and refused to allow KyeU to mirror them at TUOPF before he burned all that info...not even allowed The Way Back Machine to mirror. If Paul wanted to destroy every forum at his site he should have exempted Proxo forums as that was a unique situation where the Proxo author was dead and everything in Scott's offical Proxo forum, Sidiki's forum ext. was viciously and needlessly held to the flame of Paul's decision to nuke his site. All the other forums at Castle Cops had live authors of software and much could be reproduced but not so for Proxo's forums. A terrible loss and I lost respect for Paul when he did that. Yeah..I know it was his site to do with as he pleased...but it was ugly and wrong what he chose to do. Anyhow, it is not easy to find info since then regarding Proxo. Anyhow, here is one of few Java applet threads at TUOPF ...I think the filter is the same one we still have so I'm going to ask if that filter is going to be improved.
