Thank You Quicksand, I appreciate your taking the time to search for an answer. I got your email notification a few minutes after I got one from a techie at the Mozilla help board. He sent this to me and it worked. Thanks again. :)


Sorry for the confusion, but JavaScript and Java are not really related. The Java plugin is used by some sites for games or scientific applets, but it isn't necessary to runs the kinds of scripts that appear on most site. JavaScript is handled by Firefox itself.

You can access the global on/off switch for JavaScript using Firefox's about:config preferences editor. This is a change in Firefox 23, so that website will need to be updated.

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box that appears above the list, type or paste java and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If javascript.enabled is bold, says "user set" and "false", double-click it to re-enable JavaScript.

There are some add-ons that create a toolbar button for this if you think you might want to switch JavaScript off and on regularly. Otherwise, you can keep this post handy for future reference."
