Change settings for Google Chrome

Follow these steps to enable JavaScript in Google's Chrome browser:

  1. Open the Chrome browser and click on Chrome's main menu button, which appears as three vertically-aligned dots located in the upper right-hand corner of the browser window.
  2. From the menu, select Settings. Chrome's Settings should now be displayed in a new tab or window, depending on your configuration.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the Settings page and click Advanced (in some versions of Chrome this may read Show advanced settings ). The settings page will expand to display more options.
  4. Under the Privacy and security section, and click Content settings.
  5. Click on JavaScript.
  6. Click the switch located next to the phrase Blocked; the switch will change from gray to a blue, and the phrase will change to Allowed (recommended).
    • NOTE: If you are running an older version of Chrome, the option may be a radio button labeled "Do not allow any site to run JavaScript" or "Allow all sites to run JavaScript (recommended)". Click the radio button to Allow all sites to run JavaScript (recommended)
  7. Then click Done to return to the previous screen and continue with your browsing session.

Change settings for Firefox

Follow these steps to enable JavaScript in the Firefox browser:

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. Enter the text about:config into the address bar in Firefox - this is the space where you normally see a website's URL. Make sure not to put any spaces before or after the colon.
  3. A new page will appear that reads "This might void your warranty!" Click or tap I accept the risk!
    • Note: This button will read I'll be careful, I promise! if you're using an older version of Firefox. It's always recommended to keep your software fully updated. See How Do I Update Firefox if you're not sure how.
  4. A huge list of Firefox preferences should now be displayed. In the search box at the top of the page, enter javascript.enabled.
  5. Double-click or double-tap this entry so that its "Value" changes from false to true.
    • Android users should select the entry just once and then use the Toggle button to enable JavaScript.
  6. JavaScript is now enabled in your Firefox browser. To disable it at any time, simply return to Step 5 and repeat that action to reverse the value back to false.
