Noscript is pretty effective for this, by pretty effective I mean nothing more than images and text load until you choose to allow otherwise. Available for firefox. I swear by this add-on/extension myself and haven't browsed any sites, bar a small number of trusted ones that I've accessed via another browser, without it for several years. This extenson will take some getting use to, you'll have to get to grips with the fact that you'll be often reloading a page a few times when you first open it until you can pick the necessary sites to allow scripts from. Personally I feel this a price worth paying to control what type of content loads in my browser, but you might find it weird at first. You can choose to allow sites like youtube while not letting others play videos.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.
My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
