Is it possible to block Javascript for SPECIFIC SITES (as IE allows you to do), and if not, how soon will this feature beocme available?

Posted

Currently, blocking Javascript on Firefox seems to be all or nothing. Recently, Google made its very annoying "predictions" feature always on. The only way to block it is to disable Javascript -- but this also prevents me from enjoying many other sites, such as web radio stations. IE allows users to disable Javascript for specific sites. Since Firefox is a much better browser in most respects, it would be good to have that capability here too. If this capability already exists, please tell me where to find it. Thanks.

A couple of add-ons that block JavaScripts on some sites but allow it on others:

  • YesScript - Allows all JavaScripts by default, but lets you block JavaScripts on chosen sites.
  • NoScript - Blocks JavaScript on all sites, but allows you to specify safe sites that you want JavaScript to run on.
