Apparently, there are two Java plugins which one is as stated in my questions and the other is Java(TM) Playform SE 7 U67 which has no problems with its status set as 'Ask to activate'. The problem with the Java Deployment plugin is that i cant set it to 'Always Activate' due to reasons of being vulnerable.

This has not happened to me before until the recent Java 67 update. I really hope I could get a reply with the solution as this has greatly hindered my web-surfing on Firefox.

I've had this for a while now (not sure when it started). Because Java can be used to control your computer, it's considered vulnerable to hackers and other things. Because of this, you have to activate it each time. There is no way to automatically activate it because of its security risk.

I surf all the time without Java being called. Can you post a link to where you are having problems?

The Java DT plugin is not related to the general Java functionality with regards to running Java content in the browser. It's meant for web developers and network admins. You can delete it without negative effects to Java functionality. Instructions on how to remove it are here:
