Look at this page,,  under "Find the form ID". You'll need to find the id of your webform block form.

Then put the following code snippet in your theme's template.tpl.php (sounds familiar?). Replace THEMENAME, and YOUR-FORM-ID with your values.
THEMENAME_form_alter(&$form, $form_state, $form_id) {

  if($form_id == 'YOUR-FORM-ID') {

    $form['#ajax'] = array(

      'enabled' => TRUE

hmmm, well the ajax module is the way to get this done. I would recommend uninstalling the module (at And then re-enable the module. Then go to admin/settings/ajax and turn off ajax for every form. This way it shouldn't break your site. then you can follow my instructions above. If you run into problems googling "hook_form_alter" might help.

any difference between uninstall a module and simply uncheck it?

Yes, unchecking disables the module, uninstalling removes all data related to that module. So that way when you enable it again you get a fresh start. Some modules can't be uninstalled because they don't create any data to remove.
