Javascript is always active in Firefox, unless you use some extension that inhibits its operation.

Javascript est toujours actif dans Firefox, à moins que vous n'utilisiez une extension qui inhibe son fonctionnement.

I disabled JavaScript to stop those "Stay on this page" messages that were coming so often.

Please tell me how to enable JavaScript. I can not find "Options" in Tools. I use Firefox,and Windows OS. (The "Alt" button and hitting F10 did not work

Did you modify javascript.enabled on the about:config page?

You can set this pref to true on the about:config page.

  • about:config => dom.disable_beforeunload => true

No,I did not modify JavaScript,or do anything about:config page.

Hope this helps. I was trying to stop all those "Leave Page" messages that i get a lot of,and

I searched the internet on how to stop the Leave Page messages.

And this was what I was told to do: Disable JaveScript and enable JaveScript,I was able to disable JaveScript,but everything I have found out on how to enable Javescript,(like no options in Tools,etc.

Thank you,

Don't you remember where you made changes in Firefox like directly on about:config or via the Settings page or by installing an extension ?

On what page did you find those instructions, can you post a link if you still have it in the history so we can check this ?

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or if userChrome.css/userContent.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the Default System theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window

Thanks for your help.

What makes you think that JavaScript is disabled as i do not think that this forum website would work properly with JS disabled ?

Do you see error messages on websites that JavaScript is disabled ?

Can you attach a screenshot?

Hello Cor-el

I have done many screen shots before,and I have good notes on how to do it.

I can not get a screen shot to work,this maybe due to my messing up JaveScript.

I was trying to list all the steps,when I got knocked of that page.

Plz,let's just give this up,please.

Thanks for everything you have been trying to due to help me.
