FF blocks Java 7 update 45. Why? Explanation regards 7U11.

Have installed Java 7 update 45. Have both 32- and 64-bit versions installed from Oracle website.

Works in Chrome.

Firefox 24.0 displays error message stating that the Java plugin has known vulnerabilities.

On the support page there is a link to this explanation from January 2013 which regards Java 7 update 11. https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2013/01/11/protecting-users-against-java-vulnerability/

Does anyone have a permanent fix and preferably an explanation for this?

I know how to allow Java to run once as well as always on a specific site https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-enable-java-if-its-been-blocked

What I'm wondering is why Firefox still blocks Java per default when Java has been updated many times since the explanation was written.

Thanks a bunch!
