Documentation note Install NoScript and enable ‘Forbid scriptInstall NoScript and enable ‘Forbid scripts globally’ to improve the security of your browser by preventing 0day JavaScript attacks. This is a drastic option as it will render many websites unusable as they rely heavily on JavaScript. NoScript offers a whitelist you can use to selectively enable JavaScript for sites you trust, but this is considered [ especially bad for your anonymity] if you're using NoScript with Tor.nymity] if you're using NoScript with Tor.

Full description The '''NoScript''' (aka '''NoScript SecuriThe '''NoScript''' (aka '''NoScript Security Suite''') Firefox extension provides extra protection for Firefox, Seamonkey and other Mozilla-based browsers. Its aim is to allow active content to run only from sites you trust, and protect yourself against XSS and Click-jacking attacks. It is also useful to prevent Flash running on the browser. But its main advantage could be the alerts given on its interface. There is an increasing number of Web sites that cannot run without non-free JavaScript programs downloaded and executed on the visitor's computer. Richard Stallman first raised this another concern with his article [ The JavaScript Trap], pointing out that most JavaScript programs are not freely licensed, and that even free software Web browsers are usually configured to download and run these non-free programs without informing the user. So maybe NoScript could encourage people to keep informed about this related issue and [ take action]. Anyway, NoScript is an extremely valuable Firefox extension for security. Its unique white-list based pre-emptive script blocking approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and even not known yet!) with no loss of functionality...own yet!) with no loss of functionality...
