NoScript selectively blocks javascript, it doesn't turn it off --
which for testing purposes, at least, is the goal.

In ff -- about:config - then enter "javascript" in the search line
and set "javascript.enabled" to false.

With chrome this can be done in the advanced settings section, under
"site settings".
