JavaScript not working

After Firefox updated to 48.0.2, two things happened: all my extensions lost their settings, & JavaScript stopped working. I've reset the setting javascript.enabled in about:config to no avail. While it's set to true, websites like http://www.javatester.org/javascript.html respond with "JavaScript IS NOT WORKING in your web browser". Since a lot of the Mozilla website is JavaScript, I'm posting this through Chrome. Not as bad as reverting to iexplorer but still.

Oh dear. Please forget about this. Turns out among my extensions whose settings were reset was NoScript, which I had previously set to allow all scripts except those marked as untrusted. JavaScript is working now.
