How to Turn on Javascript in Mozilla Firefox

Mozilla Firefox is a popular alternative to Microsoft Internet Explorer for internet browsing. Firefox is an open source program and is therefore easier to customize. It is still compatible with modern web pages, including those running javascript applications.
