Can we make custom ? – metal gear solid Feb 23 '11 at 5:55
No @MetalGear the linked article mentions it's not possible – Sathya Feb 23 '11 at 6:48

Here are two options:

  1. If you use the NoScript add-on, it uses ctrl-shift-backslash as the keyboard shortcut to toggle JS permissions for the main domain of the page. This is an imperfect solution, however, since many sites use JS from multiple domains.
  2. If you want something simpler, the JS Switch add-on gives you a toolbar button to do a full toggle of JS, but it doesn't appear to have a keyboard shortcut.
