Glad to hear I'm not the only one with this issue. Re-installing Java and Firefox is not the answer. Solution: Create a new Profile in FF. This has worked, don't now why FF is not automatically recognizing Java.
Once you've done this, Java will appear as a plug-in in the Add-Ons. Profile instructions are at this URL:. To create a new profile for Firefox, Mac launch the Terminal window located in the Applications folder and paste this information behind the prompt, hit return FF Profile window will appear. If the Plug-in is not visible, Firefox may be set to start in bit mode. On a Mac, you want to quit Firefox, find the Firefox application icon in your Applications folder, and Get Info on it right-click, or cmd-I. There's a checkbox for bit mode, which you'll need to uncheck.
Bizarre approach to setting a critical parameter, but I suppose there's a reason for it. I've been going crazy for months. Is there a solution for this yet? I keep clicking 'Reload' but it just sends me round and round in circles. You can't expect much help if people don't have the basics.
Thanks for your queries. I am using OS X version I am using Firefox I have downloaded the latest version of Java from tbe Java website.

It is version 7 update 25 build 1. So I have the latest version on the computer but I cannot get Java to work on firefox. Thanks for any help you can provide. Nigel D. This answered my similar question: "If the Plug-in is not visible, Firefox may be set to start in bit mode. If the bit mode is not the problem, my next approach would be to completely re-install Firefox. Use something like AppCleaner to remove all the old traces, restart the Mac, then re-run the newest FF installer.

Unlike most other modern programs, Java simply asks the user to install updates when available. Even worse, by default, Java only checks for updates once a week or even once a month.
Many people see the update prompt and ignore it, resulting in them running an outdated version of Java. And with new versions offered regularly, even those who install some updates may get frustrated and ignore further ones. In some cases, even when users install a new version, they leave the old copy of Java installed as well.
This widens their vulnerability to attack. Every time you installed or updated Java, you had to remember to uncheck a box or it would include that piece of junk. In early , Oracle announced that even the Java installer was vulnerable. If an attacker placed a DLL file with a specific name in your Downloads folder, it would trigger an infection when you ran the Java installer. In early , Oracle announced that it plans to deprecate the Java browser plugin which is the source of most problems in JDK 9, which is available now.
Modern browsers have left Java behind, too. Chrome dropped support for Java in late , and Firefox stopped supporting it in early This list may surprise you. This illustrates the importance of keeping all your software up to date, not just the popular ones.
When you include the older versions, it seems that Java still tops the least-updated software. Conversely, according to TechRadar , Chrome comes out on top for updated apps. This shows how silent automatic updates make a huge difference, compared to the nagging update prompts used by Java and Adobe runtimes. Another vital component of update to remember is OS updates.
