I've updated Firefox for Android to 79.0.4. I like the UI changes, but I cannot go to the about:config page. I get a "Cannot Complete Request" message.

I need to be able to disable javascript in my browser completely. It used to be in "about:config". Now there is no other way to disable it.

This is abslolutely critical. Javascript is the most frequent attack vector to hack phones through malicious websites. If Mozilla does not allow to disable javascript, it knowingly puts its users in danger.

You can access about:config in the Nightly version of Firefox for Android, available from the Google Play store.

In addtion to this, there is the NoScript Security Suite add-on available in the Add-ons option in the Firefox for Android menu.

Nightly probably won't know all my open tabs since it's a separate application instance?

And as for NoScript, I'd prefer not to install a bunch of complicated code from a third party just to flip a binary flag.

I'll settle for it for now, but I hope Mozilla fixes this "oversight" soon.
