Can Firefox Fix JavaScript Issues?

Most Wanted

I really hate it when JavaScript goes bad. Here is an E-mail I got from Sal last week. Seems he is having some JavaScript woes of his own.

Hi Mitch, love the Web site. I want to switch to Firefox, but is there any way it can keep all these resizing windows and JavaScript tricks people do cut down to a minimum at least. I really hate them and wish I could browse without them. Thanks!

Sure Sal, the first thing I would have you do is go into Options menu and then click on the content tab. There you can see there is a check mark to enable or disable JavaScript. I would leave it enabled for now, but if you click on the “Advanced” button right next to it you should be able to customize what exactly you allow JavaScript to do (or not do) via the browser.

As far as extensions saving the day, there is always the NoScript extension for Firefox. It allows you to turn on JavaScript permissions on a per-page basis. This might be the best way to go if you want to make sure you don’t have unwanted JavaScript woes from specific Web sites out there.
