Why does Firefox still tell me it's blocking Java Deployment Toolkit after I did the update?

On the "Mozilla - Check Your Plugins" webpage, I was told that the " Java Deployment Toolkit" was vulnerable. So I did the update. But afterwards I was still told the same problem. Why? And should I care?

Please see the attached screenshot.

The funny thing is... I visited two sites that use Java, one being Java.com, but I did not see the black banner message of blocking.

The Java Deployment Toolkit may be the latest version, but Oracle still hasn't fixed the security faults with that plugin; so Mozilla still has it on the Blocklist and disables it so far as to require the user to use "Ask to Activate". A "soft-block" - usable if needed, but needs user-action per implementation.

Specifically, do you have a program on your PC that actually needs that Deployment Toolkit? Or is your concern merely that it is disabled after updating Java?

Very few consumer applications even use that Deployment Toolkit, which is intended for people who develop Java applications or who use applications such as various Oracle programs in the workplace.

Going back to before Oracle bought out Sun Systems Java in 2010, that Deployment Toolkit wasn't being installed with the Java Runtime Environment for users. Java developers had to install a separate Developers Toolkit to get that Plugin - the SDK program had it.

Thank you for your excellent explantion. I see now.

No, I don't think I have, or at least have used, any program that requires Java Deployment Toolkit.

Well I'm trying to open some weather sites and getting blocked message. And there is no way to give it "permission" so I can't see the radar. This is so aggravating. These are places I use all the time and since updating Firefox, I can't see them.

slswyoming,

Please start a new question thread here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new - so we can see your System Details.

Usually the Flash plugin is used for weather radar, not Java as was being discussed in this thread. But it might be possible that the website that you tried to use needs Java. Whichever is needed, when you start your own thread this forum software will "see" what plugins are installed for Firefox to use. And if you give us the URL for that weather radar website, one of us can check it foe which plugin is needed there.
