Can I safely disable Content blocker plugin

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Please forgive me if this has been discussed before, I have just done a quick search and couldn't find anything.

 

I have found that occasionally (a couple of times a day) Firefox hangs for about 5 seconds and have traced it to the content blocker plugin. I know how to permanently disable the plugins (I already have "On line Banking" and "Virtual Keyboard" disabled) and was wondering what detrimental effect disabling the "Content Blocker" plugin would have on the security of my system.

 

Is it still safe to browse if "Content Blocker" is deactivated.

 

Any help and assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Windows 7 (64bit)

Firefox 34.05

KIS 2015 15.0.1.415 b

to disable plugins in the Advanced settings of Web Anti-Virus uncheck first option

 

Thank you for your reply massalama, but if you re-read my post I already said I know how to disable plugins.

 

What I wanted to know was does disabling the "Content Blocker" plugin have any detrimental effect on security (ie web browsing).

Hi massalama,

 

Once again thank you for the reply.

 

Could you please expand on your last post. I would like to know what detrimental effect it has and how it effects my browser security? simply saying it does have an effect is not really giving me the answers I need.

 

I'm sorry about pressing home the point, but I'm trying to determine if the benefit of having the plugins disabled (ie no browser hangs) is worth the detriment to security.

 

Any help would be appreciated. :)
