Forum Response - Disable Javascript

Hello,

The Firefox settings panel does not include an option to disable JavaScript but you can still disable it using the Firefox Configuration Editor (about:config page) or by installing an add-on.

about:config

  1. In the address bar, type about:config and press Enter.
  2. Click "I accept the risk!"
  3. In the search bar, search for "javascript.enabled" (with no quotes).
  4. Right click the result named "javascript.enabled" and click "Toggle". JavaScript is now disabled.

To Re-enable JavaScript, repeat those steps.

Add-ons

You can alternatively install an add-on that lets you disable JavaScript, such as

  • No-Script (to disable JavaScript on a per page basis, as required)
  • QuickJava (to easily disable and enable JavaScript, automatic loading of images, and other content)
  • SettingSanity (adds back removed options for JavaScript, Advanced JavaScript Settings, loading images, and showing the Tab Bar)

Thank you and I hope this helps!
