how do i fix the message to update java deployment kit when I already have the lastest version of java installed?


I keep getting a message that "An important update is available for Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.400.43". I click on "Update Now" and I get taken to the Mozilla Plug-in check page. A brief message shows at the top of the page that tells me some plugins are out of date and then disappears. The plugin checks show all plugins are up to date. I have uninstalled/reinstalled Java more than once and run a registry cleaner, but once I install Java the same messages appear. I am on a Windows XP machine and I am running an older version of Firefox (9.0) because addons for some of my other software don't work with newer versions of firefox. Can I get rid of the message or do I have to live with it because I use an older version of firefox?

Please update to Firefox 23.0.1 IMMEDIATELY. Old versions are extremely vulnerable to security issues, and all your add-ons should work if they work in Firefox 10 anyway.

We do not recommend using version 9.0.1. The version you are using has too many security vulnerabilities. You can read Why do I have to click to activate plugins?.
