Add id attribute to the form and use this jquery:
if($("#myForm").attr('action').val().insexOf('IsPopup')>-1){

}

Okay.

Now, what if I do not want to add attribute "id".   Can it still work?

I do not want to disturb the way the form tag is currently rendered.

Its not gonna affect the form at all.
U can also use class instead of id and then replace the # character with . (dot)

My final solution:

if ($("form#frmMain").attr('action').indexOf('IsPopup') < 0) {  

            $('input').attr('disabled', true);
            $('select').attr('disabled', true);
            $('div[id*="divSave"]').css('display', 'none');
            $('span[id*="spnCalculateTotals"]').css('display', 'none');
        }
