So, this is the advantage that comes with scripts like NoScript, and BlockIt.
I've installed NoScript today. I figured out the part to enable/disable scripts on entire pages. But what I'd like to find how to enable/disable individual scripts. Let's see. Time to read the manual .

There will be a NoScript icon on the right bottom of the page. Click that, and it will show you a list of scripts which are being blocked/allowed. Then you can choose which scripts you want to allow or block.

Got it. Thanks! I was confused since the list had endings in ".com". I thought the suffixes would be different, like .js, perhaps.

But I still want to get this part clear:

I have the impression that NoScript blocks or allows all scripts from a site.

Within a particular site, it is possible only to block or allow scripts which involve other sites.

I will try and give an example later

So that is still my impression. If we allow, all scripts from the primary site run. I haven't found the option to selectively disallow some scripts and allow others.

And, if the primary site invokes scripts from several other secondary sites, again we have the choice to selectively allow or disallow all the scripts from one or more of the secondary sites from running.

I haven't noticed too much degradation in speed due to NoScript and it gets a 10/10 from me .

I was a long time user of NoScript, but I have stopped using it, since Firefox 3.6.3 came out. Its because I noticed the difference in speed, when NoScript was installed, and when uninstalled. When I uninstalled NoScript, I immediately could feel an increase in speed of opening of webpages. My internet connection is on a slower side, so I think the speed difference was felt more. On faster connections, I don't think it should matter.

If you use NoScript, by default, scripts on the page will be turned off. If you feel the page is not loading properly, then click on the NoScript icon (circle with a red cross, if I remember correct), and it will tell you which scripts are being blocked. Then, you can allow the scripts selectively. You can choose to either allow the script temporarily, or allow it permanently, if you trust it.
