See the section here, "Disabling All Javascript for a Site".
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/securit ... olicy.html

Might also look at the opposite. Disable JS globally, yet allow it for certain sites.

Also, at some point, NoScript may have the ability to blacklist individual sites.

Hi Stilewag,

Another way to disable javascript on a page-by-page basis would be to get and install the Preference Bar extension if using Mozilla Suite. I believe it works all the way up to version 1.7.11 of the Suite anyway. :) If using SeaMonkey it's anyone's guess if it'll work. I orginally had the July 8th version and it didn't so I had to uninstall it. Not sure if it does in the August 12th or not. Maybe someone else knows?

You can find Preference Bar here: http://prefbar.mozdev.org/ I personally use this in all my Mozilla installs and love it! One of the most useful powertools I've ever installed.

Amicalement,

Thank you.

I edited prefs.js and managed to disable JavaScript for the sites that I wanted (for Google actually: when JavaScript was enabled, the links that Google offered contained some kind of re-direct and made them very very long)

I already have Prefbar. I couldn't live without it! :) It works fine with Suite 1.7.11. I have been using it since 1.7.1 if I recall well. I never noticed disabling JavaScript for specific websites. I will check for the newest version.

Hi Stilewag!

Yes, in the last few versions of Prefbar if you click on "customise" (I believe you can also right-click on the bar and bring up the GUI to select "customise" as well?) a GUI box comes up which allows you to add/subtract whatever features you wish to the bar. I always make sure that "javascript" and "java" go on there so I can disable that, along with "popups" so I can enable those for the websites where I need them, flash, fonts, etc. I wished they had something like this PrefBar for the email as well. Would come in handy for turning images off/on, fonts, animations, html/text, etc., all without having to go to the menubar. They have these as extensions in TBird of course. One thing I miss in the Suite/SeaMonkey.

Oh well... as we say in French, "Rien est parfait!" (Nothing's perfect!) I'm sure you have something comparable in Greek. ;)

That's true BenoitRen... but I'm soooo lazy. ;) Easier to just tick/untick a GUI at the top of the page before entering the site OR unticking and refreshing the page. héhé

And for the record: I found out last night that the Preference Bar does work on the 08/12 version of SeaMonkey 1.0a. It didn't on the 07/05 or 07/08 build (it broke SM). Nice to see it working now! So you don't have to go into the preferences quite as often when in browser mode---just email mode. -sigh-

Amicalement mes amis,

I was under the impression that you were talking about PrefBar having an option that lists the allowed sites, but after having re-read your post, I think I misread. :)

Yeah is there an extension that allows you to enable or disable certain features on a site by site basis, and have those sites be remembered, so that the user preferences for each site I visit are automatically loaded? Pref bar doesn't do that at all. It requires you to check and unchecked boxes and reload the page.
