VERIFIED DUPLICATE of bug 38966

Details

There are some pages that I trust to use javascript; others really shouldn't be
allowed it (popping up windows, performing user tracking etc.). 

It is possible in Internet Explorer to have a group of sites which may use
javascript, and the rest cannot. Mozilla can do better here; why not have
something like a list of servers/paths that are allowed javascript and others
that aren't? There could even be specified which JS features those sites could
use (e.g. no popping up new windows, but allowed to change the subframe or
manipulating the DOM).

Mozilla can already do everything you described - there's just no user interface
for it yet. The UI bug is 38966, if you want to do this in the meantime, see
