Block inline scripts from executing?

by TenLeftFingers   Last Updated July 29, 2016 08:01 AM

I need to test a page with no scripts running/executing. I've tried NoScript and uBlock but they seem to only stop externally linked scripts from being executed, not those in ... tags.

Any suggestions how I can achieve this from the browser?

The Firefox add-on NoScript should be able to block all JavaScript, including the JS included in the current page.

Just make sure that you don’t enable the setting that the current page is always allowed to run JS (it’s the first setting in the first tab).
