This works for me with Firefox 60.8.0esr.

Can you verify that it's the page footer that is dumping this text for you? Go to https://octave.sourceforge.io/footer.html, which is embedded at the bottom of every page on the Octave Forge site.

Please test with all add-ons disabled to see whether it is your local configuration interfering with the site.

I've noticed multiple web pages not working properly in Firefox - there seems to be some JavaScript inadvertently shown at the bottom of the page.

This is when using Firefox 68.0 for Ubuntu 18.04.
The JavaScript code does not show up when looking at these web pages using Chromium.

Maybe the problem is that I don't let my Firefox reveal my location? I have an extension called "Change Geolocation (location Guard)" installed.
Anyway, I don't think text like that should be shown just because my location cannot be discerned.

Below is a copy of the text from bottom of the page https://octave.sourceforge.io/. Similar text can e.g. be seen on these pages:

{ const iframes = window.top.document.querySelectorAll("iframe[sandbox]"); for (var i = 0; i < iframes.length; i++) { if (iframes[i].contentWindow) { if (iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator) { if (iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator.geolocation) { if (navigator.geolocation.__proto__) { let cp = iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition; if (cp !== navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition) { iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition = navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition; } } } } } } }


And below is text from the  bottom of another page (https://octave.sourceforge.io/parallel/index.html):


{ const iframes = window.top.document.querySelectorAll("iframe[sandbox]"); for (var i = 0; i < iframes.length; i++) { if (iframes[i].contentWindow) { if (iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator) { if (iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator.geolocation) { if (navigator.geolocation.__proto__) { let cp = iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition; if (cp !== navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition) { iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition = navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition; } } } } } } }{ const iframes = window.top.document.querySelectorAll("iframe[sandbox]"); for (var i = 0; i < iframes.length; i++) { if (iframes[i].contentWindow) { if (iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator) { if (iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator.geolocation) { if (navigator.geolocation.__proto__) { let cp = iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition; if (cp !== navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition) { iframes[i].contentWindow.navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition = navigator.geolocation.__proto__.getCurrentPosition; } } } } } } }
