Editors' Review


NoScript can help you safeguard your computer by blocking JavaScript and other similar programs from running when you're browsing on Firefox. There are several ways you can set permissions through this program, and the right configuration for you will depend on your browsing habits and specific security concerns.


Permission options: There are quite a few ways you can give permission for scripts to run or block them using this program. You can choose to block them completely, allow temporary permission for a particular site, or always allow for a particular site. You can also give permission for all sites opened from bookmarks, or you can create a Whitelist of allowed sites.

Blockable programs: JavaScript isn't the only program this app is capable of blocking. In fact, you can choose to allow or block Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and other plug-ins as well, all from the same convenient interface.


Time-consuming setup: While it's nice that this program offers so many options for customization, it also means it can take a long time to set up. Because of this, your Internet usage patterns and security concerns will go a long way toward determining whether the benefits of this program make the time investment worthwhile.

Bottom Line

NoScript is a handy utility to have in place to eliminate security threats and other annoyances while you're browsing. As long as you don't mind the time investment required to set up the program initially, your browsing experience will be significantly better with this program in place.

"Cannot use in Firefox 40"

August 14, 2015

 |  Version: NoScript


The software was recommended as getting rid of the mess with scripts, by Windows Secrets.


Cannot install, it is not compatible with Firefox 40.0.2.


Really want to be able to get rid of all these script problems, but it seems that nothing really works except deleting Java, Flash etc.

"This is a wonderful tool, but requires time investment"

November 15, 2014  |  By wizbang-FL

 |  Version: NoScript


This tool will stop various elements from being executed from within a webpage of a supported browser. Within the alert by pressing alt and the script element block message you are taken to a resource page which may be able to help you understand what that website or script is up to and if you want to allow it. It also allows you to allow a script temporarily or permanently. or to disable it for a particular domain (although not encouraged because any website could be potentially hacked unknown to the user which is the point of no-script)


Initially it is somewhat confusing to understand how to investigate a website and what the information means in terms of "do I want to allow this to run an if so is it just for this instance or permanently?" Ultimately, with time and patience the user will start to identify those sites that they perhaps want to avoid due to the tons of scripting going on that is quite simply pointless. It also makes the user much more aware of what websites do and allows the user to be more aware of their environment. Knowledge is power.


A very useful program, but requires a substantial time investment for those persons who are not already programmers to interpret and understand. For those who apply themselves the tool is excellent in keeping the user in better control of their web surfing.
