LibreJS is not just a monitor/analysis tool on the state of freedom of a website, but it should also actively block non-free code while allowing the execution of free code. It is this specific behavior that will help to promote freedom and security on websites in terms of functionality.

There is only one way to use this particular add-on, and that is to keep it enabled and hence allow it to operate silently in the background as you use your browser. In essence, all you have to do is install it and it should work right out of the box; however, it is experimental.
Any problems that may arise is either a bug in the browser (incompatible with LibreJS), the website (nontrivial code that is required in order for the site to function is non-free, or free code does not use the proper syntax or is using an unsupported free license hence preventing LibreJS from labelling it as free), or a bug in LibreJS (the add-on is either blocking free code that is properly labelled, or allowing non-free code that has not been whitelisted to execute).
Last thing: What version of the following software are you using (it might aid the developers in pinpointing the problem):
