Which Browser (or version)?


[link to this post]
 
I'm using FF 17.0.1 and I have no issues, but it occurred to me that I might upgrade to keep up with web technologies. However, I see that FF23 prevents manual disabling of javascript, and that's no good. Sometimes scripts can be a pita, and sometimes disabling them is actually advantageous for web coding testing.

So...are we talking FF22, or is there a version beyond 23 that allows manual disabling of js?

I'd prefer to stick with FF for personal customised settings and add-ons.

Any other points to consider if moving from 17 to whatever version? Oh, and Vista 64x, in case that's important.

From google
the option to disable JavaScript was not removed from Firefox entirely. You can still access it from about:config or by installing an add-on.

about:config

In the address bar, type "about:config" (with no quotes), and press Enter.
Click "I'll be careful, I promise"
In the search bar, search for "javascript.enabled" (with no quotes).
Right click the result named "javascript.enabled" and click "Toggle". JavaScript is now disabled.

To Re-enable JavaScript, repeat these steps.

Add-ons

You can alternatively install an add-on that lets you disable JavaScript, such as

No-Script (to disable JavaScript on a per page basis, as required)
QuickJava (to easily disable and enable JavaScript, automatic loading of images, and other content)
SettingSanity (adds back removed options for JavaScript, Advanced JavaScript Settings, loading images, and showing the Tab Bar)

If you have a 64 bit machine try Waterfox. It will use your mozilla profile and about:config works the same way.

I favour NoScript for Java Control.
