Greetings,

I'm currently experiencing a problem using JavaScript with Firefox. I can load fine JavaScript in the website, and it's enabled and everything. In that sense, JavaScript is fine.

However, when I try to run a JavaScript with the "command", "javascript:" in the browsing bar, it doesn't works anymore. I can't even do simple stuff like "javascript: alert("Hi!");". I wish to know if there is some way to fix this. I do use this "feature" pretty often to test small scripts.

Thanks.

Running javascript: in the browsing bar is disabled for security. Users were installing malware. You can use the new feature called scratchpad for this instead.
