All I can find is "its in Preferences"


Also, it took me MANY loops before I was able to ASK this question -- kept getting looped back to the main page & stepping thru the "search" then "do these answer your question" until after some number of tries I got to the blue button allowing me to actually post the friggin question.

I don't think its being controlled by an addon. Many sites tell me its disabled.

java is something different than javascript. there is no checkbox to disable JS in the options since firefox 29 (http://limi.net/checkboxes-that-kill/), but it can be controlled through the javascript.enabled preference in about:config.
