Can java be enabled using Firefox 60.2 esr?

Posted

I have to access a legacy, Agency-wide software application that uses Java in its interface operations. The previous Firefox esr version allowed the activation of Java for trusted sites. Firefox 60.2 esr appears to have done away with this option . . . and best of all it installed itself without my intervention or choice. Now, I am locked out of our timekeeping software.

No. Firefox 52.9.0 was the last Firefox supported version that supported the Java plugin. Websites should use Java Web Start (JNLP) if they want to use Java in current browsers.

You can install a portable (ESR) Firefox version to access websites that do not work with the current Firefox release. The portable version comes with its own profile folder and doesn't interfere with currently installed Firefox versions.
