    Hello,
    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?

    Actually, those are security issues, not just stability issues. The download site for the current Java JRE (which can also install the Firefox plug-in) is:
    http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

    Once you Save this update installer (to your Desktop, I recommend) you can just run it like any program installer. It will usually just install, removing any recent updates you no longer need. Then reboot your computer and you should be good to go.

    I have found that older versions of Java have to be manually uninstalled in add/remove programs in control panel or Programs and features in control panel in Win 7. Java does not seem to update older versions, just install the new versions. The older versions are still active and can be security breaches.

    With Java 6 older Java 6 versions are uninstalled when a newer version is installed. If you have Java 4 or 5 you may need to uninstall that version.
