- majority of options are disabled
      Erinn, I'm not sure what you meant there.  Did you mean that NoScript
disables the majority of Firefox options?  Or that the majority of NoScript
options is disabled in this version of the bundle?
Not sure what was meant, but would it make * any * sense to include NoScript & then disable most functionality of it?

Huh?  It's early in AM, but which are you advocating - or both?
   If scripts are disabled in NoScript, then clicking on
the QuickJava buttons has no effect.
Others can weigh in on this: In past, I've had conflicts running QuickJava & Torbutton. One prob was once toggled Torbutton off, & shut down Tor, QuickJava didn't properly toggle plugins unless restarted Firefox - * at minimum. * Been a while, but may have had to uninstall / reinstall QuickJava to restore functions. Plan on trying it again.
   I, for one, *never* want Java enabled
for anything, but in a very few cases, I do allow JavaScript to run.
How do you get pages to work correctly - such as clicking links to d/l files, if only allow JS on "very few" pages? Seems to me, more trusted sites than not require some JS to use the sites. I'm curious, since you said "very few," not "on trusted sites."
      Okay.  You might want to look through all the stuff on the NoScript
web pages to get a better understanding of the extensive list of pretty awful
leakages and attacks that NoScript can block.
Back to QuickJava & NoScript: Aren't they overlapping - possibly conflicts of using both?
