How to Activate Javascript on Android

Javascript one of the most popular web programming languages ​​ which is usually used on web browsers to bring up dynamic content such as pop-up messages and the like. Along with the development of the world of programming, Javascript is now increasingly used by web developers to add functions from the web they are developing. As a result, almost all web pages now are equipped with JavaScript content in them.

Technically, Javascript includes web programming languages ​​that are "Client Side Programming Language". The point is that the data processing process in the Javascript programming language is done by the user or client using a client application, in the form of a web browser. As a programming language in general, of course the advantages and disadvantages of JavaScript also accompany the use of Javascript in a web browser.

Most interactive content on websites is made with JavaScript. Starting from a shopping cart on an e-commerce shopping site, a slider on the company profile website, and more. Usually, Javascript is enabled in all browsers, including browsers installed on Android devices. But for some reason, it is possible that Javascript in the browser is disabled without the user's knowledge (automatically turned off). Or maybe you turn it off but don't know how to reactivate it. So, you have to reactivate it manually.

Now, on this occasion, we will review various ways to enable Javascript on Android, especially on some webs the best browser which is often used by Android users. The following are the ways:

1. Using an Android Default Browser

  • Open the default browser on your Android device. The availability of this browser usually depends on the Android version and the brand of Android device you are using. The default browser usually has the name "Browser" or "Internet" application. Touch the browser icon to open it. If the browser icon is not on the Home screen of your Android device, try checking the application list.
  • Touch the Menu button on the browser. Usually the Menu button on the Android browser's default browser is in the upper right corner of the screen of your Android device.
  • Select "Settings" to open the browser settings menu. This option is usually at the bottom of the Menu.
  • Select "Advanced". In this option, you will see an advanced option for the Android default browser you are using.
  • Check the "Enable JavaScript" option. After the option is checked, JavaScript in the browser will be active.
  • You can close the "Settings" menu. Then, reload the web page that is currently open to see the changes that occur after Javascript is activated.



2. Using the Google Chrome Browser

  • Open Google Chrome on your Android device. You can find the Google Chrome icon on the Home screen or a list of applications on your Android device. Generally, some Android devices make Google Chrome the default browser. The reason is of course because Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google. And Google Chrome is usually embedded by Android device manufacturers because the browser is included in the basic applications and services provided by Google in the distribution of the Android operating system.
  • Touch the Menu button. This Menu Button has a three-shaped icon stack of vertical boxes, and its position is in the upper right corner of the screen of your Android device.
  • Select "Settings". The Settings menu is usually at the bottom of the screen. You may need to move the Menu window to find it.
  • Select "Content settings". In the Settings menu, look for the "Content Settings" option which is usually in the "Advanced" category.
  • Check the "Enable JavaScript" option. After the option is checked, JavaScript in the browser will be active.
  • You can close the "Settings" menu. Then, reload the web page that is currently open to see the changes that occur after Javascript is activated.

3. Using the Mozilla Firefox Browser

  • If you use Mozilla Firefox as a browser, rather than the default Android browser, enable JavaScript through the configuration menu. Unlike other browsers, in Mozilla Firefox, settings to enable and disable JavaScript are not available in the general settings menu. As a first step, look for the Firefox icon on the main screen or list applications on your mobile device. Then open the browser.
  • Next, open the browser settings page. As we said in the previous point, because in the Mozilla Firefox browser the JavaScript settings are hidden, you must access the hidden settings page in the browser to change it. To open the settings page, type "about: config" (without the quotes) in the browser's address bar. Keep in mind, by changing browser settings through the configuration page, you are ready to accept the risk of damage to your Firefox browser. Therefore, you must make changes carefully.
  • Find JavaScript. Because the browser settings page has a lot of options, you have to find an option to activate Javascript with the search feature. Select the search field above the settings page and type "javascript" (without the quotes) to find it.
  • Look for the "javascript.enabled" option. Usually, this option is in the second to last position in the search results.
  • Select the option to find the button. Then, select "Toggle" to change the setting from "false" to "true". Well, after that, JavaScript in your Firefox browser will be active. Reload the web page that is currently open to see the changes that have occurred after Javascript is activated.
  • If at any time you want to restore the settings to the initial conditions, see our article about how to reset the Mozilla Firefox browser to the original settings .

4. Using the Opera Mobile Browser

A browser that is identical to its "feature phone" browser also turns out to have a version of its Android application too. There are the names Opera Mobile and Opera Mini. Well, in this article we will discuss how to enable JavaScript in the Opera Mobile browser only. Maybe, for Opera Mini it's almost the same way, it's just different looks. Well, the following are the ways:

  • Open the Opera Mobile browser on your Android device.
  • In the Opera Mobile browser view, touch the address bar and type "opera: config" (without the quotes). Don't forget to touch the Enter button.
  • Next, the settings page will appear from the Opera Mobile browser. Type "scripting" in the "Quick Find" search field. Then the Extensions settings group will appear, where the "scripting" settings are located.
  • Check the "Scripting" option then select the "Save" button.
  • Select the OK button when the dialog window appears. Then, reload the web page that is currently open to see the changes that occur after Javascript is activated.

So, if the website you are visiting using an Android device cannot be displayed properly, the problem could be because JavaScript add ons are turned off or deactivated. Therefore, make sure JavaScript in the browser on your Android device, whether using a default browser or browser from a third party application, is in active condition before you visit a page that requires JavaScript.
