Re: a very question about anti spyware programs and very critical issue for me!

I doubt there is any way to keep anything from running automatically except to not allow scripts to run.  An ad blocker offers protection.  I don't know enough about the subject to know how much, but it may be quite a bit.  Nor do I have the technical knowledge to know if a firewall will stop the ransomeware from contacting its server to begin encryption.  In addition, I read about a new ransomware that doesn't need to contact the server to begin encryption.  If you want to use no Script (spelling) to block scripts that is one option.  If you want to turn off scripts in Firefox, that is another.  But you will still want to use scripts on some sites.  Some forms can't be submitted without scripts being allowed.  Most audio can't be streamed without scripts being allowed.  And there are many other sites that won't work fully without scripts. 
 
Many sites may be useable for how you want to use them with scripts off but if your use of the Internet is at all typical, many won't.  The most simple thing to do might be to have two copies of Firefox on your machine, a portable version and an installed version or two separate portable versions.  You can have scripts not allowed in one copy and scripts allowed in the other.  Then you can switch from copy to copy without changing settings repeatedly.
