in following above advice, be sure that you are careful with what you enable.
*only enable* site that you want. look close before you click. do not enable
'google', 'enable all of page', and such.

you can enable permanently site you want and not enable ads and such. anything
that you 'temporarily' enable will be disabled after you leave a site.

in firefox, open 'tools > add-ons > extensions' check that you have
'noscript 1.7.9'. if not, click to highlight, then 'find updates' at
bottom of window.

it would be good for you to log http://noscript.net/ and do some reading to
see just what all noscript can do.

then 'tools > add-ons > extensions > preferences' and go back thru configs.
