How do I turn off Javascript in IE 5.5?
I want to view a page without javascript

There is a site that uses a javascript test at the top of a framed site that loads the master frame if you come in on a child page. That child pages has links and I need to check the PR of that page, but can't get past the framing javascript. I want to turn it off, but don't know how.

I would like to help you but my version of IE 5.5 is in French... But I can tell you it requires a lot of unnecessary and complicated clics to achieve this simple task.

I use Opera [opera.com] for such work. You can get frames adresses in 2 clicks and you can also enable/disable JavaScript in 2 clicks only. A big time saver!

Make sure to download version 6.05 [opera.com] since version 7 is still in beta testing.

Wow, thanks, that worked. Turns out the page was just a PR3. Time to move on.

Think I picked this up from PC Magazine...

// Double-click the file and answer the prompt.
// Written by Dan Rollins
oShell= new ActiveXObject(
var DISABLE= 3, ENABLE= 0;
var nRet= oShell.Popup(
"Do you want Scripting?\n"+
"Yes to Enable, No to "+
"Disable", 0, "Enable/"+
"Disable IE5 Active "+
"Scripting", 35
if (nRet==2) // 2 is Cancel
if (nRet==6) // 6 is Yes
nNewVal= ENABLE;
if (nRet==7) // 7 is No

"\\Internet Settings"+

oShell.RegWrite( sName,
nNewVal,"REG_DWORD" );

Created shortcut on my 'Start' button, run it and start new browser session to take effect....
I'm using IE5.5
