Can you tell me if I have a 64 bit operating system which Java update do I download
Please can anyone advise me on what Java update I download for a Windows 7 64 bit operating system. My Firefox is telling me I need to urgently update my Java but when I click through to update all that is there is a page of confusing information about 32 bit and 64 bit systems. It asks which version am I using 64 bit version of Firefox or 32 bit. I didn't know there were two, I thought when referring to 64 bit and 32 bit it meant the operating system of my computer. Can anyone clear this up for me. Thank you.
hello, you need to install the java plugin version that fits your webbrowser. firefox does only exist as a 32bit version at the moment (it will run on windows 7 64bit anyway) - so for java to work in firefox, you'd also have to install the 32bit plugin: http://java.com/download/windows_xpi.jspLeggere questa risposta nel contesto 👍 7

Of course, if you have a x64 bit system, its better to download a x64 bit Java version. However, i think Firefox won't be able to use it since Firefox isn't x64 bit (yet). So if you need Java in your browser, you'll need Java's 32bit version.
Keep in mind i could be wrong. It's just my guessing because i tried it out some months ago. I installed 64bit Java but Firefox couldn't handle it.
However in my opinion you won't recognize a difference between 32 and 64 bit, unless you play games in Java or do other resource intensive work. 32bit will always work on a 64bit PC, but not the other way around.

When it told me to udate java also i was wondering the same. Here is what i did. It worked no problem. Click on start click on control panel click on programs click on java icon. Now java box will be up. Click on top which says update. Then click on bottom update now. When its done. I was good to go. Firefox addons said up to date.
Thanks for that sigprn I have finally solved my problem updating Java I don't know what I'd do without people like you, I certainly wouldn't get anywhere close to solving it on my own.
