Do you have any add-ons installed in Firefox?

One of them may be blocked scripts from running in websites that you are trying to view.

Note that you shouldn't confuse JavaScript and Java. JavaScript is built-in and is enabled by default, Java is a different language and is no longer directly supported in any browser (would require Java Web Start).

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, DuckDuckGo PE, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block content.

Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content.

  • click the shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection

You can check the Web Console for relevant-looking messages about blocked content.
