Disabling JavaScript in IE

 5:01 pm on Apr 28, 2003 (gmt 0)

I'm gradually getting mad about those windows popping up when trying to close a page. (I mean, calling the window.open() when the "close" event occurs)
Can anyone please help me on this and tell how to disable JAvaScript in IE, or any other idea of dealing with this?
I use IE 6.

To disabl JS in IE:

Click Tools -> Internet Options -> Security -> Custom Level

Tick disable under Active Scripting and save.

If you're feeling adventurous you could try Opera - with one and a but clicks you can disable popups for good!

Hi pawel,

I use Internet Explorer's "Security Zones" to only allow JavaScript on sites that I choose - that means I don't have to keep turning it on and off - my online banking service requires Javascript for example.

The way I do it is as follows:

1. Make "Trusted Sites" the same security level as "Internet". To do this, select "Trusted Sites" (from the Security Page) and move the slider to "Medium".

2. Go to the "Internet Zone" and disable Active Scripting (as Birdman has described)

3. Surf away, and when you come to a regular site that you want to allow JavaScript, go to "Trusted Sites" and click "Sites" - then add the site you are on.

Alternatively, one of the 'experimental' features of the Google Toolbar [toolbar.google.com] is to disable the onUnload javascript trigger - which should help prevent the bahaviour you describe.
