Java is not working with Firefox (but is working with Safari)

My computer is showing that Java is not enabled via Firefox. When I try to go into Tools/Add-ons, I see that there is no Java plug-in on that list (though I previously had no problem with Java). When I run software update on my Mac, it tells me my software is all up to date. Not sure what else to do. Java is working in Safari, so the problem is clearly with Firefox. I've tried disabling all my plug-ins, and clearing my cache. Nothing has helped.

Apple has removed support for the Java Plugin2 with the latest Java Update 10 for OS X 10.5 Java version, so the Java plugin is no longer available for Firefox versions and other browsers like Google Chrome that require the Java Plugin2.

There will be fix for this in Firefox 6 or in Firefox 5.0.1 if that version will be released, so that Firefox will find the plugin again.

I don't know if all Java applets will still be working on OS X 10.5 with this fix (Apple recommends updating to OS X 10.6).

Okay. Thanks for the info.

(For the record) Apple's Java Update 10 for Mac OS X 10.5 caused Java to no longer be detected in Firefox 4.0 and above and in other non-Apple browsers that use Java Plugin2 (this did not affect Safari or Firefox 3.6). Mozilla fixed the problem in the latest Firefox 5.0.1 update.

I have just update to Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 9. I am running Firefox 13.1. I have same problem. Is there a Java plug-in I can use?
