I want to disable javascript for websites. I've done this in the previous versions of firefox by unchecking box in options/contens. But there is no disable javascript option in firefox version 29.

Chosen solution

Hello Raiyad Raad, it is removed from Firefox 23 and above, you can do it only in about:config.

  • javascript.enabled toggle to False


thank you

Satya:

As ideato mentioned above, that option was removed starting with Firefox 23, so that won't be helpful. Ideato's method is correct/the only way to do that.


Ideato: Your answer will be marked as the solution since it's the only way to disable javascript.

It can no longer be done globally from the User Interface. There are still a few other alternatives. Depending what you need to block it may be worth considering a script blocker something such as

Additionally if it is a specific website that you use often and wish to for instance block just parts of the media use the permissions for that page.

Maybe you are using an old version of Firefox if so it would be worth updating it
