Just got a Java update after which FF opens with a message from Oracle saying FF is 64 bit and Java plugin no longer works.  Any feed back on this???

That message is pretty clear.  The question is...DO YOU HAVE A NEED TO USE JAVA? Most users don't have a need to have it installed.


Since FF 52 Java has been non-functional. Java is compatible with older 32 bit versions such as the one used by older Windows OSes.

Firefox ESR...Extended Support Release....is still receiving Firefox security updates. Java is not compatible with any Firefox 64 bit versions.


Many confuse javascript and just plain Java....two different animals so I thought it best to mention that.
