Here's two browser add-ons (free software) with similar behavior. By
default these extensions disable *all* Javascript and then the user can
enable Javascript from trusted sourced.

It would not have helped much in this situation if one listed Twitter
and Facebook as trusted sources (which most probably is true for all
Twitter and Facebook users). In general these extensions protect you
from Javascript when visiting new websites.

For Firefox you can use NoScript:
* website: https://noscript.net/
* add-on page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noscript/

For Chromium/Chrome you can use ScriptSafe:
* website: https://github.com/andryou/scriptsafe
* add-on page:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/scriptsafe/oiigbmnaadbkfbmpbfijlflahbdbdgdf?hl=en

I wanted to commend as well how the incident has been reported. Thank
you, Greg.
