Why did you remove The option to disable Java scripts?
Everyone knows malware always comes through java scripts. So why did you remove the option to turn it off ? Why the false saftey excuse? (duckspeak) This makes no sense. Alot of people also get errors and have slower speed with some pages so they disable it. I understand there is plugins available to block scripts but they never work 100%. It just really really seems strange that a browser that was built on the idea of safety, security and trust has now suddenly removed a item that makes users less safe, Under the guise of safety. (doublespeak)
I will no longer use Firefox ever again unless you put this option back.

Quote: Everyone knows malware always comes through java scripts.
We regularly see questions from people that use extensions that can block content or otherwise make changes to default settings and they aren't aware that extensions are causing their issue.
Note that you run an older Palemoon 20.3 version that likely has unpatched and known security vulnerabilities.
Not in the current release, but this will be possible in Firefox 24 and later.
- Web Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer;Ctrl+Shift+K)
In Firefox 23 you can only do this by toggling pref(s) on the about:config page.
WHAT? I don,t know the difference between Java and java scripts? that is like saying a rock is 2 different rocks. Why the doublespeak lies? you can link all you want but I have been working with computers over 20 years I am also a network engineer I know for a fact most spyware and adware come through java scripts ,Now not as many virus come through java script as they do from downloading and installing software/extensions. But the adware can download the viruses itself and some are worse. Updating plug-ins is not the issue here anyway. You can update plug ins and flash and browsers all day. But even updated looking at a site you are not sure of without java script disabled (because it was a great update) Can get some nasty malware. That is a fact. You can keep lying all you want. But as I said. I will never use Firefox again or my family or friends and anyone else I can inform, Unless the option to disable java script is put back in. A browser that claims it is safer to not disable java script sounds like a corrupt dangerous browser to me, and I will have nothing more to do with it, And I used Firefox since it first came out.
dramatizing and inflating your remarks won't make them any more accurate. we have already provided you with multiple ways to enable disable js...
Also note that the option is available in...
- In the address bar, type "about:config" (with no quotes), and press Enter.
- Click "I'll be careful, I promise"

TorFox? More of your hyperbole? Or is that a name that you coined for the Tor Browser?
Mozilla Foundation has nothing to with with the 3rd party Tor Browser project, which is built upon open source Firefox code. Anyone can build their own web browser using Firefox code, as long as they obey the Mozilla rules as to trademarks and copyrights. That is what the Tor Browser project did by having their own name and images which are different from Firefox.
I am locking this thread. It has been reported as being outside the forum's scope. The question is off topic.
We do try to help users and explain workarounds and options where possible, but we try to stick within forum guidelines and to avoid discussing development decisions.
If you wish to post where developers see your post trawl through this listing and try to find somewhere that has such a discussion or will allow one to be started

This thread is considered "unsolvable" since it's not really a support request. aw
