I have JRE 6, update 18 on 2 systems. My Windows Vista 32 bit system is running Firefox 3.5.9. My Win 7 netbook is running Firefox 3.6.3.
On both systems, Java will not update. When I try, Java tells me that I have the most recent update.
On both systems Firefox has disabled certain Java plug ins stating that they cause stability issues. Also on both systems, I am not able to access videos on a joke website I like to go to.
THere are quite a few Java plug in's in Firefox, most are enable. The ones that Firefox has disabled I have left disabled.
I think it's a problem with Java and Firefox.
Hope this helps?
