Description

7 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:12.0a2) Gecko/20120210 Firefox/12.0a2 SeaMonkey/2.9a2
Build ID: 20120210013001

Steps to reproduce:

 
RFE: Command Line Option to disable plugins, much like how -safe-mode works for disabling extensions.

So something like: seamonkey.exe -no-plugins (or -disable-plugins -plugin-disable or ...).
 


Actual results:

 
Browser opens normally.
 


Expected results:

 
Browser should open with plugins disabled.
 
 
Having this as an option should prove useful for troubleshooting, I would think.
If/when disable.plugin works interactively (without restart), that would help, but still a command-line option would be beneficial.

I'll note that SeaMonkey's Safe Mode (GUI) offers an option to "Disable all add-ons", which /does/ also disable Plugins.

Though still, a command-line option would be nice.
