Accidently installed NoScript, can't get rid of it and JavaScript has been disabled even though it says it's enabled - help!


I accidently installed NoScript when trying to remove adverts/pop-ups. Now it's causing problems on various sites I regularly use and I can't get rid of it. It doesn't show up on Tools/Add- ons so I can disable and JavaScript has been disabled, even though it shows as 'Enabled'.

Help would be appreciated.
