How to enable and disable JavaScript in Firefox

I don't understand why the Firefox programmers / designers make it annoyingly difficult to disable and enable JavaScript globally. It was easier in the old Netscape browser a gazillion years ago.

Method 1: Via about:config

  1. In Firefox's address bar, type about:config and press Enter.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise! button.
  3. In the search bar, search for javascript.enabled.
  4. Double click on the row of preference named javascript.enabled to change the value to False. ...
  5. JavaScript is now disabled.

This is absurd to expect "normal" users to take these steps.

Open Firefox
In the address bar, type about:config then press Enter on your keyboard
Please note, if your version of Firefox was pre-installed on your machine or device, altering settings in this was may void your warranty
Otherwise, click on the I’ll be careful, I promise! button to continue
In the search bar, type javascript.enabled to find the preference option of the same name
Right-click on the javascript.enabled option, then click on the Toggle menu item
The Value column should now read as false, meaning JavaScript is disabled. A Value of true means JavaScript is enabled
Restart Firefox then visit whatismyipaddress.ricmedia.com to confirm JavaScript status
To enable JavaScript, follow the steps again and Toggle it’s Value to true
