Default Newbie question re JavaScript

Please Login to Remove!

Apologies if this is a daft question!

I have tried to log into my Hotmail account to check my calendar but get told that I cannot as JavaScript is required. Is this just something that the Blackberry browser doesn't allow?

Other than that, I love my new Bold 9700.

I get a screen headed WindowsLive ID and the message "JavaScript required to log in. Windows Live ID requires JavaScript to sign in. This web browser either does not support JavaScript, or scripts are being blocked.
To find out whether your browser supports JavaScript, or to allow scripts, see the browser's online help"

This is where I get lost!

within browser - menu - options - general options (i think) - check all the boxes next to javascript.

I think I may have resolved this.
Once I managed to find the browser options, I checked the "enable JavaScript" box!

Thanks MidnightDraven. I stumbled across this solution but you confirmed it.
Should I also allow JavaScript pop-ups (whatever they are!)
