    According to PC Magazine,there seems to be a security problem with Mozilla and Firefox. They recommend turning off Java script. How is this done and what effect(s) will one notice?

    1.0.3 or earlier?

    Turning off JavaScript is NOT a viable option. Too many web sites need it to function.

    I tried turning off the javascript and found that I could not see two other gun forums. All I got was a blank screen but no listing of sub-forums, etc,
