Hi Mart67

I am getting the java plugin blocked too.

It seems that there are more bugs in the latest java update (java 7 u15), so I am assuming FF is blocking until resolved (if ever):

hello, in future mozilla will also flag current versions of the java plugins to be executed on a per-demand basis (click-to-play) as a general precaution. however this blocking has now coincided with yet another vulnerability discovered in the java browser plugin as already mentioned by gary above.
