  • Its important to tell users who visit a site that needs JS to work, that some things like for example an order form doesn't work properly without JS.

    You do this by detecting if JS is activated, and display for example warning if its not.
    I make sure to always do this.
    The standardized way to detecting this, is by using the nosript-tag.

    However, when you disable JS with THIS adddon, the content in the noscript-tag is NOT displayed.
    So its being done wrong somehow.

    This can lead some some very difficult to diagnose errors, where for example users claim they have submitted something, because that clicked submit, and the page just reloaded.

    As a developer, I have to give this addon a fail-review because of this.
  • Отключает скрипты и запоминает сайты и на андроид работает и обновы частые молодцы
  • Works great !

    Small 'gotcha' I encountered : I turned off JavaScript on a certain web page (https://www.jstree.com/api/) to test something and forgot about it.

    Next day, I couldn't figure why the site was not working. Looking at the errors in the console, I saw a bunch of "Content Security Policy: The page’s settings blocked the loading of a resource ..." errors, which confused me even more.

    I finally suspected my Firefox Add-ons, looked at the list and remembered I used JavaScript Switcher the previous day ! All is well now. :-D

    Note to developers : Turning off JavaScript with this add-on _doesn't_ show tag content.
    Thanks for the review, yeah it happens, happened with me too, at start, You can see the JavaScript Switcher Icon, if it is green then JavaScript is not disabled, if not it is disabled. If you wish to suggest a feature request or bug, you can freely mail me, It always feel good, when people use thing you created and try to enhance it.
  • The extension is very useful. where sites require javascript it can be switched on. Where java scripts cause problems, freezes etc, it can be switched off. I had a problem with the JS Switcher symbol not being visible in my browser address bar. I emailed the developer who responded alsmost instantly - he is very helpful indeed. Eventually I found two reasons why I couldn't see the icon. Firstly, it only appears on http/s web pages and not on the firefox new tab, add-ons, or options pages, for example. Secondly, in customising the toolbars, I had a "flexible space" to each side of the address bar, which reduced the size of the address bar and appeared to cut off the JS icon. Easy to fix by removing the flexible space via customise. With these issues sorted, and in light of the very helpful developer, I am happy to give 5*.
  • Works like a charm.
  • It does what it's supposed to do, so in that regard I give it "5" stars. But the fact that it starts out disabled makes it a "3." I mean, I can appreciate that the developer made his choice, due to user demand. But for me, I would prefer to have it enabled by default and then toggle it to "disabled" if the site wasn't performing as I wanted/needed.

    Still, a huge nod of "thanks" to the developer for a useful add-on that does the job. For me, however, I'm not sure it's a keeper. :)

    EDIT (First): Suraj, Thanks for the response, which I just saw. I will double-check. It certainly may be that I made a mistake. I hope to get back to you soon. Thanks again.

    EDIT (Second): Suraj, I recently visited Auction.com and kept getting a Firefox message about a slow-running script. So I used your JavaScript Switcher app and it worked like a charm.

    Thank you!

    EDIT (Third): Suraj, I have used the add-on for only the Auction.com site, as I previously mentioned. As I have not been back to the site for some time now, and have not had occasion to use it elsewhere, I can only presume it's still working as you designed it. I shall remember to come back and comment if I have other issues, or praises, to offer you.

    Thank you.
    It starts out enabled, could you please check again. I mean at start all sites have JavaScript enabled, and you can disable with this extension then after whenever you feel like, isn't that what you wanted?

    Oh, that is amazing, I Usually use it for the same and pop up scripts, what happened to your original query?

    Ohk, sure please comment if you have any other issue. Have a nice day.
  • Pouvoir désactiver le javascript site par site avec mémorisation du choix, quelle riche, quelle confortable idée. THANKS !
  • I liked! Used for develop sites.
  • Really useful for stopping sites from popping up annoying adds, Lightweight add-on, also it's icon is not on the usual toolbar instead on the URL which has its special meaning for blocking specific web-sites.
  • Works for "blackisting" with Javascript enabled, but apparently not for toggling it the other way around (Firefox 57 b11).... I disabled JS via about:config (javascript.enabled=false) and it's off, but the button is still green & clicking it doesn't enable Javascript. Sorry, no jackpot this time ;)
    Friend, What you did was disabled JS through about:config that disables JS throughout browser, and this add-on is notified of it, the button still shows green because it does not use that, what it does it maintain a blacklist of domains that are not going to use JS, and it uses that list, so what you did was blocking JS flag in Firefox and this add-on does not use that. If you disable JS By clicking that symbol, it will remember that and next time you visit that domain it would be turned off, and clicking again will turn it on, basically this add-on is forked of JavaScript control, only thing changed is default option, and rest is same, and so whatever you can do with that add-on seeing your review of it, you can do same , only change is default behavior.

    So please try going to any site and disabling JavaScript through that button, and next time you visit, JavaScript will be turned off and icon color would be grey for that particular domain, and all that it took for enabling is Clicking it again, it goes green, and now that domain is white-listed.

    I hope I cleared your doubts, Any other things feel free to ask me. Thanks for using it.
  • Again, thanks for this. Excellent add-on... and compatible with the new Firefox 57+ technology!!!
