Problem with Firefox 14.0.1 and Java

Since I upgraded to firefox 14.0.1, I can't access a site which requires the latest version of Java (#36, I believe). I've installed that on my computer, but the site won't load. However, I have firefox 13.0.1 on another computer, and it has no problem at all accessing that site.

I tried accessing that same site on IE on the same computer I have firefox 14.0.1, and IE first asks me if I want to run Java and when I reply yes, it loads the site just fine. But I hate IE and want to be able to run the program on firefox. Firefox 14.0.1 never asks about Java. It just won't load the site.

I'm running firefox on a PC with XP.

I think this has to do with add-ons and Java, but have no idea which add-ons I should have or which I shouldn't have. Currently I have no Java add-ons but when I search for available Java add-ons, I'm given 3 possibilities: Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0, Java Deployment Toolkit 6.0, or Java Platform SE 7.

The computer with firefox 13.0.1 (also XP) does not have any Java add-ons running but it shows Java Console 6.0 as disabled and Java Quick Starter 1.0 as disabled.

Anybody have any ideas?
