How do I re-enable a blocked Java Plugin?

First, let me explain. I work in a support role for a company that utilizes certain element management systems to monitor and troubleshoot network faults. Due to our company's security and application support policies we are forced to use a dated version of Firefox and Java to access the EMS's webserver.

The problem: With the recent update to Mozilla's blocking policies the Java version we utilize is being blocked and access to the site no longer functions properly. We need some method of workaround that will enable us to circumvent the block.

Disclaimers ahoy: we actively and willingly acknowledge the risks that are inherent in actions such as I request. I would ask that discussion pertains to the topic as we need an immediate workaround to access our tool and a long-term -safe- solution will be cooked up with the help of our company's processes.

I am happy to provide any details that may be needed.

Thanks! EDIT: I resolved the issue myself: see reply below.

The keyboard number keys and symbols above them will not work. I nothing at all except a space or they last letter key used, but works fine in other applications such as MS Word. The number pad works just fine. Any one have any thoughts on this.

I had to do a reinstall and upgrade to Windows 7, so I may have missed something. Running a 64bit OS. Problem only seems to be in the browsers.

Hello,

I was using Internet Explorer 9 as my default browser. I downloaded Firefox and imported everything over, but Adobe Flash Player is not on Firefox. It's asking to manually install the Plug-in and, after I click the icon, it doesn't install.

Since I already have flash player installed, which works fine in IE, how do I fix this problem?

Thank you.

Firefox opens multiple (up to 30) windows despite following help for "Firefox keeps opening many tabs or windows," & there's no malware. How can I fix this?

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 620 running Windows 7 Professional. 64-bit. I have ZoneAlarm Security Suite, which does daily virus scans, and Webroot SpySweeper, which does a daily scan for spyware. Neither has found any virus or threatening spyware (just cookies I could delete myself). I keep running various deep scans, including Malwarebytes, TDSS Killer and BitDefender Removal Tool TDSS TDL4, and no malware shows up. I've cleared cookies, cache, etc. and restarted.

I made a new desktop shortcut, which helped for a couple of times opening Firefox, then the problem came back.

I downloaded and ran Revo Uninstaller in Advanced setting, then reinstalled Firefox. Helped a couple of times, then the problem came back.

I checked the Firefox help link. No programs are set to use Firefox. I deleted mimeTypes.rdf according to the directions, then restarted Firefox. Same problem remains.

I've completely cleared history, but after once or twice opening Firefox, the problem returns. I've restarted my computer after the above.

Hi. I have been running firefox since it first came out. I remember it made internet explorer look like your were browsing on dialup no joke. Anyhow, with the latest firefox it runs very slow on my laptop. My laptop is older. It's a HP 6735s. I tried a different browser - Opera. Opera runs perfectly fine on this laptop but does not display everything corrects(forms,buttons). I did notice Opera uses way more memory than firefox.

Is there anything I can do to speed up firefox or make it use more memory? Currently if I try running firefox in safemode it uses at least 80% cpu usage and does the same w/o safemode. I really would like to continue using firefox as it does seem the best browser. Is my laptop too old to run firefox? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
