Noscript works fine in quantum now. You pick it and have to wait like a second because the stuff that used to be in a submenu comes up kind of as part of the web page. So you right click, pick noscript, then I usually just arrow up or do ctrl-home, and you get to stuff that shows up as links and radio buttons and the like.
