is it possible to restrict tabs of activity section in view issue screen to project roles ?

we want to design a light verion of the view issue screen for users that have ONLY peroject Browse opermissions and want therfore to hide the tabs 'Work Log' 'Activity', 'History' and 'Transitions'

is there any way to do this ?

No, that would require field-level security, as the Work Log, History, and Activity tabs are just views on the issue data itself. (Hiding the history would require hiding certain fields.)

Removing workflow transition links is definitely possible by setting Workflow requirements/conditions for each transition. If you ensure that "basic users" aren't included in those restrictions, the transition buttons will not appear when they visit the page.

You can do a javascript hack similar to the one in the link below (You just need to identify the id of the elements that you need to hide).
