However, I am consistently able to enable and disable JavaScript while a
Web page is currently being displayed.  If that page has scripts, they
work or don't work according to whether JavaScript is enabled or
disabled.  The change of status for JavaScript is indeed effective when
I make that change.  There is no "remembering" of a prior status.

Occasionally (e.g., with Web pages for the Vanguard Group at
<https://personal.vanguard.com/VGApp/hnw/home>), I find scripts within a
page that load external scripts.  If JavaScript is disabled while
loading such a page, I must reload the page after enabling JavaScript in
order to get the full functionality of the page, part of which is
supplied by the external script.  (I find this really annoying because
SeaMonkey temporarily freezes while the external script is requested and

I disable and enable JavaScript so often that I have a PrefBar checkbox
to do it.  I never have to terminate and relaunch SeaMonkey when
changing the JavaScript status.
