24 has downloaded without my approval. How do I keep 22.0, and prevent the 24.0 upgrade? I do not want to lose the Javascript toggle since I use it continually. I prefer having Javascript off, but need it on random pages, and do not want to restart my browser every time i change it, since I don't have the bandwidth to waste or constant restarts.

Hello,

In Firefox 23, as part of an effort to simplify the Firefox options set and protect users from unintentially damaging their Firefox, the option to disable JavaScript was removed from the Firefox Options window. However, you can install an add-on that lets you disable JavaScript, such as No-Script (to disable JavaScript on a per page basis, as required), QuickJava (to easily disable and enable JavaScript, automatic loading of images, and other content) or SettingSanity (adds back removed options for JavaScript, Advanced JavaScript Settings, loading images, and showing the Tab Bar).


If you still really want to downgrade to 22, you can visit Install an older version of Firefox, however I wouldn't recommend this as it may mean your computer is vulnerable to security exploits.


Hope this helps!
