    Dear Wilders:

    I run my default browser,Firefox 3.6.2 in Sandboxie,with start/run and access internet, limited to Firefox exe.
    Through the Firefox add-on,"tool bar Buttons", I also have JavaScript disabled by default.

    Do you thank I add any security with The "No-Script" add on?

    I assume if I use the "No-Script" add on,such methods as disabling Java-Script via "tool bar Button",become redundant?

    Thank you,
    rat

    If I remember correctly NS stops XSS.
    If it does, then I'm getting my money's worth.

    If I remember correctly, the Noscript author tells you to leave Firefox's javascript settings alone. Something to do with how Noscript functions. Noscript stops a LOT of scripting issues. It can be a pain, yes. But, when I used it, it was very worth it.

    Thank you gentlemen,I will leave No-Script in place,and stop jacking with "toggle Java-Script" via tool bar buttons.

    With NS you can even block various plugins and more. It's a must, IMHO.
    About the last 0 days bug in Firefox 3.6: with NS you were safe.
