Java runtime plugin 14.9 is installed on my Mac 10.8, but the plugin status report from Mozilla says I need to update it. How do I resolve this?
Mozilla's plugin status report says that I need to update Java Runtime Environment, and that I am running version 14.9.0. But when I download the update, all I get is "Java 8 Update 40", which my computer says is an older version. I can't find any info on a later version than 14.9. Nor can I find this plugin in my computer -- it does not appear in the System Preferences window, or in the Applications Folder (including in Utilities). How do I clear this up? (Note: I disabled Firewall).
As a Windows user, I have to plead ignorance about those specific details of OSX. Hopefully you'll get help from the Apple experts.Leggere questa risposta nel contesto 👍 0

Hmm, Java 8 Update 40 should be the current version for both Windows and Mac. Do you recall where you got a version 14.9 -- was it part of an Apple update instead of coming from Oracle (which now operates java.com)?
I see similar threads on Apple's discussion forums but can't personally confirm whether the solutions work. For example:
Jscher2000, thx so much for this. The 1st link seemed more useful to me at this point -- but I got stuck at not being able to locate "Devices" either in System Pref's or in Applications/Utilities. It just doesn't show up. I sent CBella a response with my latest dilemma. I really appreciate you fast response.
I also tried going into Utilities/Terminal (another option some have suggested), but I always get stuck at the password -- I am using the password I always use for changes in this computer, but it is not accepted.

Jescher2000, in case you don't see my other post, I just wanted to let you know that my issues are finally resolved. The old Java is out, the new is in! And no more spinning wheel -- so far.
The link you provided, and the follow ups they gave, worked for me.
I appreciate your help.
