Disable javascript in Firefox

While javascript can provide many useful functions for the average browser, it can also be used for evil, well, at least annoying behaviour. One of my all time peeves is when a page tries to decide what size my browser should be and what toolbars are visible.

Classic web design dictates that code should never alter the user’s browser. I guess it’s one of those un-written (or is it?) laws along with marquees and auto-playing music.

Fortunately disabling this nasty behavior is a snap in Firefox.

Go to Tools -> Options
Select the ‘Content’ tab
Click on ‘Advanced’  button

firefox-settings

Select the checkboxes as shown below.
