JavaScript is not installed separately it's normally built into the Web Browser.

It's likely you don't have Flash installed (or don't have a new enough
version of Flash).

Open Firefox and type in the address bar about:plugins
One of the items on that page should say Flash, there may be more than one.

If the highest version is less than 9.something, or there isn't an
entry for flash you need to install it.


In brief:
- Enable multiverse
- Open Synaptic and search for "flashplugin-nonfree"
- Tick to install and click apply.

Try the site again.
