I am beginning to do that. And hopefully nothing whitelisted will have
the ability to attack....

Sounds like a good idea, to prevent double billing or the transaction

I am not on Facebook but I found one site a few minutes ago that I use
for web mail that I couldn't even get to the  login page without

I rarely use MS Windows, but the next time I do, I will install
NoScript for Firefox on Windows. It's a winner.
