To access a particular website , I need to use Java 6 u 37, but Firefox will not allow me to enable it since it is outdated. How can I do it?

Posted

I have downloaded Java 6 update 37, but Firefox does not recognize it as a valid plug-in, and so will not even give me the option of enabling it. Is there any workaround for this?

Chosen solution

Firefox is a 32 bit application, so make sure that you've installed the 32 bit Java program and that Firefox can find its plugins.
