Flashplayer whitelist



  • I absolutely hate flash adverts so I was wandering if there was a way to have flashplayer disabled by default on all websites besides the BBC? BBC is the only website I access regularly that still needs flash player for videos. So I want flash player enabled for that site but disabled for all others.

    Open vivaldi://chrome/settings/content
    Set Plugins to "Let me choose when to run"
    Close Settings
    Add a exception to page by clicking on globe or lock in address field for Plugins

    Thanks. That works.

    If only they had made that setting easier to find.



  • Or just use a decent adblocker like ublock origins.

    Yes, but the internal block by exception list reacts faster and always as its functions are compiled in the code of Vivaldi and not a slow Javascript extension.

    A decent adblockercab be intended even as a custom host file.

    Personally I prefer to not download the ads at all than to block them selectively one by one.

    It's like a cure v.s. a vaccine, in general I prefer the latter.
