    Shouldn't that be no Java console 7.0 in FF6?

    I've just updated to FF6 and Java 6u26 works fine but I was warned that the console wouldn't work just like your screenshot.

    Errm, yes I did! Your screenshot shows that the Java CONSOLE is not compatible but your text states that there is no Java whatsoever.

    I also added that the Java version immediately prior to 7.0 has the same issue in that the CONSOLE is not compatible but Java still functions.

    All my Java consoles were disabled but seemed impossible to remove. I found them lurking in a program folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\extensions) and removed them from there. I don't miss them at all.

    To confirm that the Java "player" (JRE) is still working, you can use this test page: http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp

    Shows Java is working on my FF 6. Java console is also disabled but I don't miss it either.

    Isn't that a kick in the butt? No consolee, but java still works. Add on developers can't keep pace with FF's new release a version a month schedule. Lots of plugins don't work with FF6 yet, but most of my favorites do.

    I've solved FF6 problems in 2 moves, 1, uninstall it, 2, install Mozilla Aurora. Only one add on I know that does not work is 'BetterPrivacy'
