NoScript Extension for Firefox

If you're being bothered by the new crop of pop-behind and pop-out adds that are appearing on various web sites you may be interested in the Firefox NoScript extension. NoScript works much like Firefox's built in popup blocker, but instead of blocking just popup windows it blocks the execution of JavaScript on a domain by domain basis. You can enable JavaScript for those sites you trust and leave it disabled for those you are unsure of. Just like with the popup blocker you get visible notification of scripts being blocked. Notification take the form of a header bar that you can click on to allow script permanently for that domain or as a one time thing. It works well.
