How to enable JavaScript after downloaded ff25 running on Mac OS 10.8

Since I updated to FF25 I can't enable JavaScript which I need for sites I use. I have the latest Java 7 version 45 but there is no plug-in appearing for Java. I added Quickjava 2.0.2 I think this is the version, and clicked to enable java. But when I visit the sites that require JavaScript I get an error message saying JavaScript not enabled. When I test the java 'latest version' test from Java's web site using FF java cannot be detected, but it can when I do the same test using Safari.

How do I fix this? Tx Jo

You can check the Security tab in the Java Control panel to make sure that you have enabled Java for browser (Firefox).

Type about:config in URL and enter

  • In the search bar, search for javascript.enabled

Are you wanting to enable Java or Javascript, they are both totally different technologies

Thanks Cor-el this helped me solve my problem - neither Java nor JavaScript were recognised by Firefox :-)
