Firefox recommended that I disable Java (TM) Platform SE 6 U24 6.0.240.7. What will happen if I disable this?

Posted

I have Windows 7. If I disable this Java add-on, what should I replace it with? Thanks

Also, you should begin to prepare to upgrade to Firefox 11. Firefox 3.6 will be dropped from support in a few weeks, which means it will no longer be receiving security or stability updates. Firefox 11 is up to 7 times faster than 3.6, has lots of new features and improvements, as well as support for new web standards. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/features/ and Updating Firefox have more information.

I've been reluctant to upgrade to Firefox 11 because I understand it will not look like my Firefox 3.6. I like the look and placement of my tool bars and menu bars, etc. Is there any way Firefox 11 can be tweaked to look like 3.6?
