You assume Firefox, which, as Oksana indicated, doesn't apply to her 
situation at the time.

Even Chrome's NotScript isn't nearly as good as NoScript. e.g. 
NoScript lets me turn off ads.bigtent.com without turning off the rest 
of bigtent.com. No so with NotScript - you turn off the higher level, 
and get nothing, or don't, and get everything.

- I suspect a little google control here (somewhat kidding). This lets 
you get google.com, but not deny ads.google.com. (Fictional example.)

And even with NoScript, if you've mis-clicked and allowed something 
you shouldn't, in hindsight, it's still too late.

So, I'm guessing the message you quote still applies, even with 
NoScript. (caveat emptor)
