I've successfully updated latest Java plug-in to latest version but Mozilla plugin page shows it's still outdated

Mozilla Plug-in page showed Java was outdated and needed updating. I did do that but the plug-in page still shows Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.90.5 10.9.2.5 & Java (TM) Platform SE 7U9 10.9.25 as being outdated. But when I go to my add-on page and check my plug-ins, those are both showing up as being installed and enabled and the date I updated them on which was today 12/12/12. Also I went to www.java.com to check what the latest version was and when you click on downloads it automatically checks to see if you are running the current version and it says I am running the latest version. I even went and uninstalled some old java updates that I forgot to remove in my programs. Should I just ignore the *outdated* plug-in reminders for those two on Mozilla's plug-in page since everything else is telling me I did it correctly? Thing is, how do I know when there is a new update if those two never update and consistently show they are outdated? Thanks to anyone that may be able to answer this question.

While downloading a music sharing program called "imesh" a number of different addons were added to my toolbars.I uninstalled the imesh program but all the additional addons stayed. I got rid of most of these but my home page was switched to the "imesh" search page. No matter how many times I have tried to switch back to my preferred home page, as soon as I shut down Firefox and then return to it later, the homepage has been swithched back to the "imesh" search page.

How do I permanently change the default printer Firefox uses. I have 3.6.6 and have read that the was fixed and the solution was to select the printer you want to be default and it will be default until you select another printer. It doesn't work for me, I had to change via about:config.

A bad coded web page kept on catching my attempts to close it. And I was stucked in a never ending loop of trying to close it or Firefox down with no possibileties to close. Other tabs were no problems. And I did have more than one open tab when I tried. I know I cant close the last tab. But it must be possible to force close this kind of bad written and bugging web-pages. I was using a laptop with Ubuntu Linux 10.04 and the latest 3.6 version of Firefox.
