Administrators can disable the plug-in for all libraries on a server, or allow individual library managers to disable the plug-in for their own libraries.
The library plug-in allows library users to:
- Move library contents easily within the library by dragging them
- Perform round-trip editing of library contents, downloading to their local computer, editing, and uploading to the server in one process
- Determine if connectors are installed
- Perform bulk file uploads
The plug-in is an ActiveX control, which some customers might not want enabled due to security requirements. If users do not install the plug-in, but it is enabled, the installation prompt message is always there.
Users with Microsoft® Windows® Vista machines running Internet Explorer in "Protected Mode" might be unable to run the plug-in. They must add the Lotus® Quickr™ server to the "Trusted Sites" in the Internet Explorer security settings.
Users with Linux® machines running FireFox might be unable to run the plug-in. After installing the FireFox extension, users must allow the Java applet inside the FireFox Linux extension to run as an additional step. Users must also install and configure either the KDE desktop or the SELauncher utility.
To disable the library plug-in across a server, the administrator must follow the instructions in Configuring global library options
. Use a global value of false
To allow individual library managers to disable the plug-in for their own libraries, the administrator must follow the instructions in Configuring global library options

Individual library managers must perform the following steps to disable the library plug-in for their own libraries.
- Expand the portlet menu for the library and click Configure.
- Under the heading Library Display, clear the checkmark from Enable browser plug-in.
- Click OK.
- Users who are currently working in the library with the plug-in enabled can continue to use the plug-in until their next page refresh.
