How do I enable JavaScript?

Posted

Using Foxfire Mobile for Android web browser, what tools and steps are to be taken to "enable" JavaScript? --[ in order to access/view websites requiring JavaScript]

Chosen solution

Menu > Preferences > (first tab)

There is a checkbox toward the button to Enable JavaScript.

If sites still demand you enable it even after turning that on and reloading, it could indicate that the site is "testing" for JavaScript using a method inapplicable to mobile, or is having trouble starting up a plugin and assumes that the reason is lack of JavaScript support.
