Java 7 update 13 not recognized by Firefox 18.0.2

I recently updated my java to version 7 update 13 and FF 18.0.2. Somewhere in between, Firefox no loner recognizes Java. I've tried removing Java completely and then reinstalling Java 7u13, but Firefox never recognizes it. It does NOT appear in the plugins. In the Java settings through the Java Control Panel, I've noticed that the "Mozilla Family" is unchecked. Even after checking the box, it gets unchecked when I go back and look at it.

Is there a known compatibility issue with Java 7u13 and and FF 18? Is there a way to *force* FF to recognize Java in the plugsin selection? Is FF blocking Java from getting installed? Is there a way to prevent FF from blocking any addons?
