Enable Disable JavaScript

How to disable or enable JavaScript

Do you have to disable JavaScript, sometimes known as JScript, for some reason? Here are the step-by-step instructions for majority of the browsers. By the way, Java and JavaScript are two different things, so make sure that you're looking at the correct language.
 
    TIP:If you're adding JavaScript to your pages, it's a good idea to view your pages with JavaScript disabled, so you can get an idea what users without JavaScript enabled browsers would see.
 
    WARNING:Please note that you may loose some of the web page functionality by disabling JavaScript.
 
Navigator 3.x
  • Go to "Options | Network Preferences..." from the main menu
  • Change to the "Languages" tab
  • To enable: make sure "Enable JavaScript" check box is checked
    To disable: make sure "Enable JavaScript" check box is unchecked
  • Restart the browser
 
Communicator 4.x
  • Go to "Edit | Preferences..." from the main menu
  • Select "Advanced" panel
  • To enable: make sure "Enable JavaScript" check box is checked.
    To disable: make sure "Enable JavaScript" check box is unchecked.
  • Restart the browser
 
Explorer 3.x
  • Go to "View | Options..." from the main menu
  • Change to the "Security" tab
  • To enable: make sure "Run ActiveX scripts" check box is checked
    To disable: make sure "Run ActiveX scripts" check box is unchecked
  • Restart the browser
 
Explorer 4.x
  • Go to "View | Internet Options..." from the main menu
  • Change to the "Security" tab
  • Select "Custom" and click on the "Settings..." button
  • To enable: make sure "Enable" is selected under "Active scripting"
    To disable: make sure "Disable" is selected under "Active scripting"
  • Restart the browser
 
Simply reloading the page, rather than restarting the browser, maybe sufficient under some browser versions.
