This is a rather gross overstatement.

NoScript blocks javascript by default, and it is easy to whitelist sites you
decide to trust.

I've never had it "prevent you from logging in to any site without your
specific authorization"; it is not even clear what that means. Do you
mean form prefilling? Do you mean persistent cookies? Do you mean
javascript mediated login forms? Something else entirely? Some detail
about your problems would be informative.

Form prefilling is a security issue; it can let "onload" javascript
handlers steal your passwords from the prefilled form.

I run the "Secure Login" extension to control form prefilling and "CS
Lite" to control cookies.
