I want to prohibit opera 11 browser from running plugins (like flash and java) before I will click on plugin content. E.g. When I go to http://panopticlick.eff.org/index.php?action=log&js=yes it does run my flash plugin and my java plugin, but I want to prohibit this. If there will be a Flash or Java object I will click on it to run plugin.

My settings are Preferences -> Advanced -> Content -> Enable Plugins "Yes"; Enable plugins on demand "Yes"

But panopticlick still can run my java and my flash without asking me. Also, some sites have a lot of flash banners and only minor part (~1/3) are stopped in "Click to play" and most are activated without any clicks.

Is it possible?

The Chrome browser can this AFAIK. but I want to do same with opera///

I can also accept solution with some js-solution, which is compatible with opera or extension for opera. –  sgsadg Jul 21 '11 at 5:05

You can try this Flashblock User Javascript for Opera instead: http://my.opera.com/Lex1/blog/flashblock-for-opera-9

Description from website:

Flashblock is an addition for the Opera that blocks all Flash, Silverlight and Java content from loading. It then leaves placeholders on the webpage that allow you to click to download and then view the Flash content.


My settings are Preferences -> Advanced -> Content -> Enable Plugins "Yes"; Enable plugins on demand "Yes"

panopticlick still can run my java and my flash without asking me. Also, some sites have a lot of flash banners and only minor part (~1/3) are stopped in "Click to play" and most are activated without any clicks.

I believe this is an Opera bug.

See these Opera forum posts reporting the same thing:

may be it is a feature? Can I fully turn of all flash with any opera extension? –  sgsadg Jul 21 '11 at 4:59
    
@sgsadg I edited my answer to suggest another method. It's a User Javascript-Flashblock for Opera. –  galacticninja Jul 23 '11 at 5:50
