Hello!

 

My name is Manolis,I am 34 years old and I come from Greece.

 

I have Windows 7 and I run Mozilla Firefox. Recently when I tried updating my Mozilla plugins, it said that there were 2 outdated plugins:Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.510.13 and Java™ Platform SE 7 U51. I followed the instructions and I updated them but when I run the plugin status check again, it says that these plugins are still outdated. Any ideas?

 

Thank you.

I believe it's a Mozilla problem not a Windows problem.  Take a look at this thread:
Pale Moon forum • View topic - [Solved] mozilla says java 7 update 51 vulnerable??
Although, I wouldn't exactly call the problem "Solved".

FlannelBack hi! Thank you for the reply!

 

So from what I understood from your link it's a problem of the Mozilla browser. I have updated the plugins correctly but the "check plugin status" page of Mozilla doesn't get informed about the updates. I hope I understood well.

 

Thank you.

Hi Manolis!

     I don't know mmuch about computers but I too have Windows 7 & Mozilla firefox and it works beautifully together,I no longer use any "Java"......when I had Widows XP with Firefox,everytime I would get a security threat from Secunia PSI it was always "Java",I would update & still get "insecure" reading ....finally I realized because it was "end of life" is why I kept having these issues,I put it on the "ignore list" but was very uncomfortable doing so ......Now that I have the Win7 I decided not to use Java,it just seems to have too many vulnerabilities ,,,,,,,so as I said,I don't know very much about computers but I do know that I am much happier not having Java to worry about so perhaps your problem is not with Mozilla Firefox at all?

Yes, that's correct but it's not the browser itself, just that the "check plugin page" is not being updated.

Unless you visit sites frequently that require Java, you could disable the Java-plugin.
