how do I enable a addon firefox disabled dur to a newer version being available?
I need to use Java but the version 7 has problems and does not work for me. I want to stick with version 6 but firefox disables it and wants me to update to the latest version. I need to enable the older version.

Hello rap694, indeed Java 7 update 11 is Vulnerable, so in firefox is blocked for your protection, see : Java Plugin 7 update 11 and lower (click-to-play), Windows has been blocked for your protection
see for the vulnerability :
if you like read all the discussion : SUMO community discussions - Another Java vulnerability...
see if is helpful : How to use Java if it's been blocked
see also : Java - Add back missing registry key
Older Versions of Java are just as vulnerable, so please update to 7 update 11 and only use it if absolutely necessary.
one of the links had the answer.... just by clicking on always activate all plugins I was able to access the site with no issues...thanks
you are welcome
