I downloaded Java to my mac and then decided to uninstall it, but it's still showing up in plugins on firefox.

Posted

I installed java plugin to my mac, which runs mountain lion, and then found instructions to uninstall it by dragging it out of applications and into the trash. However, under Tools menus--Addins, the java plugin is still showing up. I've disabled it, but would like to completely uninstall it. How do I do that?

You can set the plugin.expose_full_path pref to true on the about:config page to see the full path of plugins on the about:plugins page.

It is best not to leave that pref set to true as it exposes that full path to web servers via the navigator.plugins object, so reset that pref to false after you are done with the about:plugins page.
