    1. Hi Tamiym Abubakar,
      Thanks for coming.
      Here's my answer for your questions:
      - Can't download app
      It'd better if you check your free space in your internal storage by going to Settings> "More" tab> "Storage". If necessary, you can move some files from your phone to the computer to free up some space.
      - Can't find java-script
      If your phone runs with the latest Android 4.4.2 Kitkat, you should be able to find the javascript option by going to the Internet app settings> "Content settings"> enable "Turn on JavaScript"
