I have had Java disabled on my Firefox, since it was recommended to do so. (that was over a year ago or so) I got a notice to update Java Runtime Environment. I did it. I usually go back and make sure Java still shows disabled on Firefox. It always has been. Now I do not see anything in plug ins, under add on manager tab, for Java. I can call up Java Control Panel. The box is unticked for Mozilla, but it is showing ticked for IE. Some places won't be fully seen or usable without Java. I also have No Script on my Firefox. Sometimes it is a pain, but it has hopefully helped me. Any ideas on this?
