It was not correct.  You can not run AdBlock Plus outside the context of
Firefox.  And it was already installed; you just had to restart Firefox.

JavaScript is unrelated to Java, other than the confusing name.
JavaScript is a scripting language.  It is used on many websites, and is
also part of the implementation of Firefox as well as Firefox plug-ins.
