My setup: OS - Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Browser - Firefox Developer Edition Java - SE Runtime Environment build 1.8.0_51-b16

Installation Path: Browser - C:\Program Files\Firefox Developer Edition Java - C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_51

Description of problem: My operating system, web browser, and Java version are all of the 64-bit nature and properly installed, however, Firefox does not show a Java plugin in the Add-On Manager and I cannot run Java on any websites. When I go to verify Java on their website, it tells me that Java is disabled or not installed, but Java is enabled in the Java Control Panel.

hi mrflom, that's to be expected - 64bit versions come with limited plugin support at the moment (only flash is whitelisted). if you depend on other npapi plugins please continue to use regular 32bit builds.

Only the Win64 and not 64-bit builds in general from Fx 41.0 and on.
