Thank you for the confirmation.

And in my quick testing disabling that setting, it seemed to behave just as you suggested: overriding NoScript's attempt to enable JS for sites I'd whitelisted. So I reverted to the default.

Yes it's safe. If you set that pref to false, NoScript won't be able to allow the scripts you want.

I just want to confirm that it's safe to leave javascript.enabled=true in Firefox (about:config area), and I can still feel confident that NoScript will continue to disable javascript for all sites that I don't explicitly whitelist. (Yes, I have "script" unchecked in the Default profile.)

I kinda think the above goes without saying, but I just wanted to ask anyway to be sure, then put it to rest.

Thanks.
