You may want to try the NoScript extension.  It disables all Javascript
by default, and allows you to turn it on for specific domains.


For some people, it may be too aggressive.  It depends on what web
sites you intend to use.

In the last decade or so, the overall Firefox policy seems to have become
"forget whatever we used to do, let's force people to write extensions
to provide those features".  And in the last year or two, as people
started using extensions to provide the features Firefox has stripped
out, the policy has become "let's block the use of extensions".


So, uh, good luck.
