    Question Disable Plugins in Firefox 2

    Does anyone know how to disable plugins in Firefox 2 under Gutsy (presumably the same with FF2 under Hardy)?
    By plugins I mean stuff like Totem, not extensions that you can uninstall/disable via the Add-ons panel.

    I don't want to uninstall the plugins universally because they're still needed, just disable them for one security-sensitive Firefox profile or user.

    Yes looks interesting, thanks. Only thing is, it seems to apply to downloaded (click the link) content rather than embedded content unless I'm reading things incorrectly.
    At least it might be half the solution although it's a pain having to keep track of specific mime types to disable.

    While an Ubuntu solution would be ideal, I just noticed that NoScript can forbid plugins as described over here, so at least that gives a working solution.
