Many firewalls have the capability to do that. You can just block any 
HTTP requests that end with '.js', for one thing, or block responses 
with a Content-type of text/javascript or application/javascript (and 
other techniques). But organizations that want to do that will more 
likely have their users running thin clients or lock down the desktop OS 
security settings so that javascript is disabled in the browser, block 
the users from changing the settings.
