No, I wasn't talking about a button to enable and disable JavaScript.
There are tons of extensions that can enable and disable JavaScript;
even QuickJava would be superfluous for that purpose. I was talking
about a button to show the *current page* with JavaScript active, while
otherwise leaving JavaScript disabled, for a limited designated period
of time (probably just until the user navigates away from the page).

Because of the way Firefox handles JavaScript, a Firefox extension
should be able to do this by enabling JavaScript, releading the page,
and then disabling JavaScript again once the page loads. But that's just
an implementation detail and I don't know for sure that it will continue
to work in future Firefox releases. The important thing is for
JavaScript to be globally disabled, but temporarily allowed on a
particular site at the push of a button.
