How to Enable JavaScript in Firefox (For Windows)

JavaScript is an interpreted internet programming language which is used by several websites in order to create a dynamic interaction with the person who logs in. Since it is a part of the web browser, once it is implemented on a website, the client-side scripts allow them to interact with every user who logs on to a website with JavaScript.

This language has now become quite common, so much so that it is being used by server side programmers and game developers as well.
