How do I get java console for firefox version 6? I just upgraded to firefox 6 and the program told me that my java console 6 is out of date and firefox has disabled it. I don't know what java console is and I do not know exactly how to get the one I need for this firefox version 6. I wish I had not upgraded firefox now.

This site had some expected interesting information:

Take a look here to update java: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic411802.html


Some instruction there said that java runtime environment version 7 is currently available first at:
http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java7.xml , as reported by keyboardNinja. While visiting that site, I found a link for download which when clicked, ran a version verification check. the results were that, "Congratulations!
You have the recommended Java installed (Version 6 Update 26)."

Based on that, and the fact that so far, Firefox (version 6) seems to be working, and that Java site tells me I have the version of Java that I need (contrary to what Firefox told me), I am not sure why I need Java Runtime Environment version 7. Also, I checked java settings in Control Panel and I do not see where Java Console is shown as disabled. Maybe I do not know where to look? I am confused about this Java Console disablement.

Control Panel for Java shows that Java (runtime environment) is Enabled in two ways, and indicates that Java Console is "Hidden" (not sure if this is same as disabled or not). I can only assume that "Console" is part of "Runtime Environment"; am I correct on this?

Also, if Java Console is disabled, what websites can I try to visit to know if Console is or isn't disabled? I 'feel' safer keeping my Java RE version 6 for now, since Java (website) tells me that's what I have and that is the correct, latest version( and site says version 7 still in testing).

Any further clarifications about this Firefox 6, Java 6 Java 7 Java Console arrangment?
