Java SE RE 6u21 for Windows 7 64bit or 32bit when I use Winodws 7 64bit
I use Windows 7 64bit. What version of JRE should I use the 64bit or the 32bit version? What about the Java plug-in in the 64bit version of JRE? Do I need it in Firefox to use Java?
Not sure how often
Firefox is a 32-bit browser, you need the 32-bit version of Java. Without Java, you won't be able to view Java presentations on the websites you view, you'll see a "missing Plugin" icon where the presentation would appear.Read this answer in context 👍 15

OK, it was helpful but I expected that under learn or read more, I would see how to add Java for 32bit. My PC is XP 64bit and java 7 apparently is OK for that but I have had problems adding java 6 build, I cannot recall but I think it includes 29 in it. What to do next? You have helped my huge in past and my hope is that this will continue the trend. Bye, S
