Java machine & applet support

Posted

Does the Firefox Mobile for Android support the Java machine to run Java applet? For example, Some web mail system works by using the Java applet. I found lots of mobile browser doesn't support it. Firefox Mobile is designed to be the same as Firefox Desktop. How much support of Java applet does Firefox Mobile done now?

Chosen solution

Sorry, there is no Java plugin compatible with Firefox for Android, so Java applets will not run.

As far as I know, no one has created a Java plugin that runs on Android for any web browser. If there is a Java plugin available that works on Android, then we will look into supporting it.
