"Check that JavaScript is enabled" incomprehensible without JavaScript

    See the screenshot

    Without JavaScript, the user is presented with a cacophony of information that's practically unreadable.

    A noteable problem is the reference to "Enable JavaScript" under Options/Preferences - Content. That item was removed in Firefox 23. The lowest supported version is Firefox 24 ESR, so I don't think that information belongs in a support article.

    I know efforts aren't being made to make sure articles are readable without JavaScript in general, but at the very least the directions for enabling/unblocking JavaScript should be readable without JavaScript.
