Enable javascript in firefox

I use Linux (Fedora) now and sometimes one update messes up things, so I need to fix them. I often can’t see videos right or some web pages show up with missing elements. Not anymore since I got a fix.

I wanted to access Google Drive and I was told I need to enable javascript in Firefox 27.0 to do it. I googled the matter and it seemed to be very easy…except that it wasn’t. Because I use Firefox 27.0 – the last version of Firefox at this time – the menu is different and all the tutorials on the web instructed me to tick a box that wasn’t there.

How to enable javascript in Firefox 27.0:

1. Open a new tab.
2. Type in the address bar “about:config”
3. Click on “I’ll be careful, I promise”
4. Type in the search box “javascript.enabled”
5. Right click on “javascript.enabled” and chose “Toggle”
5. Close the tab. Issue resolved. Mission accomplished 🙂
