Have tried both installing Java 8, unistalling it and a version of Java 7 uppd. 67 that doesn´t seem to exist, but still is there... I´ve tried restarting my computer, activating plug in for Java 8, but I still get the message that I Need a plug-in to be able to show content.

With the last Firefox upgrade, some plugins are no longer enabled until you enable it.

Type about:addons<Enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; <Control>(Mac:<Command>)<Shift> A)

On the left side of the page, select Plugins.

BTW; At the top right is a link to check your plugins.

Verify Java and Find Out-of-Date Versions {web link}

I`ve already been there and changed the plug-ins... One of the first things I tried.

There´s no Enable or Disable, but it does say "activate always" / "ask for activating" (Aktivera alltid/Fråga efter aktivering: Swedish translation?)

Now what?

I´ve only activated Java (TM) Platform SE 8 U25 not Java Deployment Toolkit

With plugins, (these are programs that are separate from Firefox) you can set them to Always / Never / Ask.

Give some details of the problem. What is the web address of the problem? What happens / does not happen? Is it just one site, several, most?

more options

I`ve set it on Always, (was on ask earlier) The site that doesn´t work is the one to my bank.

When I enter personal number and it´s time to enter a code, the page cant load the "program" neaded to enter, and sais "En isticksmodul behövs för att visa innehållet, Installera Insticksmodul" A plug-in is neaded to show content, install Plugg-in

I´ve tried the "legoboxes" on the top left side, and still nothing...

Done... Hopefully it will help

Did you try to click the two Lego block icons that show in the location/address bar to see what plugin is this about?

As I wrote earlier, I´ve tried the "legoboxes" on the top left side, and still nothing...

The left one sais that Continue and allow (tried several times, and I get back to the same image that tells me I have a plug in missing)

The right one tells me to install Java, but it only works if I do it manually.

BTW: I tried Internet Explorer and I get in that way, but not trough Firefox....???
